I was very surprised to run across a pair of these last week. New in the boxes. I wonder how many more are stashed in old music store inventories?

Nice! Those are the ones from the late Fullerton era where they used a heat sensitive resin instead of solder. Cool stuff. Note the single mounting hole. These are for the Dynasonics to mount to the snare frame. I've got a drum that could use one of these. Any for sale?

My 1977 Dynasonic has these same style 19 strand wires. Wasn't sure if they had this style in earlier years.

In the Swivomatic years, the snares were similar, but with the usual solder holding the wires in place. Sometime in the Fullerton era, Rogers invented the technique of using the heat sensitive brown resin in lieu of solder. Note that John Cermenaro, the last Rogers employee and the company's R&D man at the time, was in awe of the process. That was in the early 80s.
