Default Re: Help dating old bass drum?

I didn't even know clamp spurs existed! At the risk of asking an obvious question, what are the advantages of clamp spurs? Is it purely to preserve the shell / sound? The condition of the hoops would be a slight concern here, but I won't really know until they've been fixed up. Is drilling an old shell a big no no??

Here's a pic of the lug screws & fittings (no T rods or claws). The washers & screws are wrecked, but the lug screws are in pretty good condition. Don't know yet if they're imperial or metric...

Also, I should say that there is only one existing hole drilled in the shell. Would this suggest it was a marching drum?

Thanks again.
