Your snare has the exact same throw and butt as mine, but different lugs. Any badges anywhere on these drums?
Don't think that small tom originally came with that bass drum. Two different mounts.
I've been looking thru my parts shelves and found these.I have the butt, hoops, throw. Everything but these dang rods and like Mark said they may be like looking for a needle in a haystack! Thanks for all the info you sent. Very interesting.
So you could use these 6" rods? Correct?Thanks for the pics rock roll. I appreciate it.
These rods are 5 3/4 with the half moon plate that fits on one end.
There was a Hoshino brand that was not associated with Tama. I've heard they only existed until the mid 70's.Yes, I believe H. Gakki is Star and of course later becomes Tama. I’m not really sure where the “Hoshino” brand fits in just read somewhere they were in fact different.
Wow! Thanks Jeff That's fantastic. I'll PM you my info. I'd be happy to pay for shipping.So you could use these 6" rods? Correct?
I found another bag almost the same contents which mean I now have 4 ... 6" rods.
You would have to use bolts for the end but you could get it up and playable until you find some more half moon ends.
Let me know if you want them. I'll send em free.
It won't cost much , don't worry about it.Wow! Thanks Jeff That's fantastic. I'll PM you my info. I'd be happy to pay for shipping.
Found something you might think is interesting....Yes I know it's a stencil, but I've never seen one like this. (Not that I'm an expert in MIJ drums)
I'm just wondering if anyone has seen one like this and may know what year it would be from approximately. I can't find GHI anywhere on line. you do see "Worlds Supreme Quility" on lots of stencil kits.
This one has a very heavy duty throw off/strainer that I've never seen on a MIJ drum, but it is definitely original to the drum. The long rods with the flat ends are new to me too.
