I'm sorry I don't have any pictures, but I do know they made them in the early '70s. All the ones I have seen were single headed concert toms at around 7 to 7.5" depth (not exactly sure).

They pop up from time to time, but a lot of them have been drilled for new mounts or converted to double heads. I found one in the used section of a drum shop for $25 bucks. Blue sparkle, good edges, clear interior, no extra holes, and the chrome was in pretty good shape, and the B/O pointy badge was flat to the shell! Gave it to my cousin for his blue sparkle set.

Edit: forgot I had this one in my stash. Granitone interior, clip mount, reso side slightly out of round (typical for the small concert toms), and 5 small classic lugs.

I have one , a 10 x 7.5", I converted from a single sided concert tom. Just enough space to drill for reso side lugs and have same spacing from the bearing edge. P.S....It sounds amazing and has 5 small Ludwig lugs per side !! Came with a bearing edge on bottom...simple conversion. Was a natural banged up finish and was re-wrapped with thin turquoise flame wrap. These where all former Ludwig marchers with small lugs including the 20 x 14", which was a large single sided tom I converted into a bass drum. {10,12,15,20, and 6 1/2 by 14 snare drum.}

I have a White Cortex concert tom with 5 lugs, drilled in far enough from the edge that a bottom row would have to be offset, if that was something I wanted.

Hoochymama has one for sale here right now.
Send me the link please. ....did not see anything other than his larger concert toms for sale.
