Default Re: Shell ID?

Is that an outer ply or a wrap ? It don;t look like a wrap. How wide is the re-ring ?

An outer ply; I yanked the black wrap off. Re-ring = 15/16" -1" ~ closer to 15/16".

A finish ply ? I ask because another wrap would lap under the joint,...I think. I don't see that.

Shell looks to be 3-ply : 2 outer mahogany, 1 inner ??? Outer ply follows into scarf joint.

The original wrap was probs silver sparkle as there are a number of SS flakes peppering the our surface. Could have just been picked up at the factory.

Looks to be mahogany-poplar-mahogany with solid maple re-ring. Several manufacturers used that combination. It appears the wrap did NOT go into the scarf joint, is that correct?

Correct : the wrap did NOT follow into scarf joint.

Hobbs, what is the hole spacing (center to center) for:
1) Lugs
2) Leg mounts
3) Muffler
Do all the holes appear factory original to you?

Slingerfan ~

1) 1 11/16"
2) 1 7/8"
3) 1/2"

All holes appear factory original.

It's been a while since I've had a MIJ drum and when I get them I get rid of them. What I do recall is everything about MIJ drums looks & feels somewhat chintzy. THIS shell, though possibly MIJ, feels solid and well done.

Hobbs, your measurements do not match Slingerland. I agree that looks like a quality shell. Somebody here should be able to identify it given all the information you've supplied. Where's idrum4fun, K.O., or mlayton? This one shouldn't be that hard.

Well, I very much appreciate all your legwork!!!

It would be nice to know as I don't rewrap and the shell will just sit here doing nothing. So selling it to someone who'll do something with it will just fund other projects.

Again, thank you ~ Chris
