Default Re: Tama Imperialstar 14"x5" snare found

If that snare were in my possession, I would restore and not part out. Basically a pre-Kingbeat. Great save potential.

Regards

That's a gem right there. Can't wait to see it all cleaned and put back together.

>pre-Kingbeat.snare mechanism.
The kingbeat snares rattled and were near impossible to tune.

A lot of snares tried to use that action ,but it was way too finicky.

The extended snare used in the mid 80's Imperialstars were way better, as was the one piece spun steel shell.
