Identifying snare drum with missing badge
 
5 Attachment(s)
Hello! I have this gold sparkle snare drum that has a missing badge, and I'm wondering if there is any way to figure out the brand and age of it?

1. Drum Shell Material -- Wood

2. Drum Finish -- Sparkle

3. Drum Badge -- Missing

3. Drum Dimensions -- 5.5 x 14

4. Interior Finish -- Natural

5. Hardware Configuration -- 8 lugs

You can see where the badge was affixed, and it appears to be a round shape (from the shape of some of the leftover adhesive), but that's all I know. It says "Japan" on the strainer. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any markings inside the shell...

Any help that you can give me is greatly appreciated! :)

MIJ... Maybe Crest, Maxtone, CB 700 etc?

MIJ (made in Japan) which may have been sold under literally a hundred different names which is why they are called "stencil" brands. An importer ( J.C. Penney's, Speigel, Montgomery Ward, Sears, etc.etc.) would contract with a far eastern company to build drums and put their particular name/badge on them. Most of these were made by either of two companies who eventually became the Tama and Pearl brands of today. You might check the other forum here on non-USA drums for a more precise answer.
