The Fine tuning screw on the snare bridge is backwards. It should be located on the "throw" side.
I'm not sure what you have on the Snare side head, but you want to have something that is fairly thin for optimum snare response. I always use a Remo Diplomat, but anything close to that will work.
Enjoy!!

You can find approximate year of manufacture by the badge serials.
Edit: Oops, I see it's a 1976, good score, Pat!

If you haven't already done so, google for a dyna sonic set up guide.

If the wires aren't pretty straight you'll get some secondary rattles out of them. The original Rogers wires had 19 strands epoxied in place rather than soldered.

Dynasonics are chromed brass shells with 5 to 7 lines around the circumference. The wireset is attached to an adjustable bridge on the bottom.

SuperTens are chromed steel with no lines around the shell and a conventional wireset.

I think some part were already changed, since i bought it in a music thrift store...

I see no rail in the wire, it was changed into Pearl brand...

the strainer/throwoff was also changed with ludwig...

Too bad the throw off was changed adding holes to the shell. Looks to be a Superten as the hoops don't have the gates utilized on a Dyna. If I am remembering correctly the snare bed (almost nonexistent) is the same for both the Supertens and Dynas of this era. The difference between the 2 models is the addition of the snare bridge.
Nice drum.

Actually Dynasonics WERE made during the big R era once the xp8s came out. They were 10ply xp10s and came in 5x14 6.5x14 and 8x14 in natural maple only. First with green felt and ending with black felt under the lugs. They also had brass lug locks on the batter tension rods.
