Lurked for a bit, but somewhat new to the forum and relatively new to the vintage drum side of things (excluding cymbals). After spending hours on the all knowing internet, I’m nowhere farther along in my quest for info on this snare and hopefully, someone could share their knowledge or insight.
There is not a date stamp inside the shell or badge, It’s a 6 lug, 13” in diameter, but it also measures 3.5” in depth.
So basically, at the end of the day, I’m totally confused. Would this be considered a 4” shell, a 3” shell or simply a 3.5”? I have some speculation on the possible era, but it’s simply a guess at this point using old catalogues as a guide and someone here may be able to dial in an approximate age better than I.
Any and all ideas, suggestions comments are welcome regarding the nature of this drum.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
