Thank you for the insight and restoration tips. Edges are pretty good drums tune up okay but they strange old heads on them, gonna do ambassador top and bottom and go from their. Got them for 1000$ even.Unless the edges are so bad the drum can’t be tuned I would leave them as is. I’d use ambassadors top & bottom.
I restored a 1969 club date bass drum last year. The original finish was almost completely peeled off.
It may be unusual being 20” x 14” but never had legs or a Tom mount.
I removed all hardware and soaked it overnight in blue dawn dish soap. (see Ytube). Then polished with “Neverdull“ polishing wadding. Worked great.
Oiled and repacked the springs in the lugs.
Painted the drum, use with DW hoop mount spurs. Sold my Yamaha kits.
Yeah I had that thought, and I agree about the tension rods. But it clearly has two holes where the original BD legs were, and I don’t see any holes that would indicate the presence the floor Tom leg/height adjusters, and it has a cymbal arm mount.Could the bass actually be a 18" floor converted as a bass? That would explain the aftermarket spurs and mounts. Also, from the factory, the bass tension rods would be "wing" type.
