Cool Snare ID Please!!

Hey all,

I just picked up this snare for next to nothing and since it has no badge, I'm really not too sure what I have here...I'm thinking possibly Pearl?...It almost looks like this snare has never had a badge on it...I don't see any evidence of one being ever installed on the shell...It's in really great shape, aside from a few scuff marks on the wrap...I still have to detail and polish it...Anyways, here is what I do know about this snare:

1) 5" x 14", 5 ply, vertical grain (luan) shell
2) 6 through lugs (plastic) for single tension rods
3) Has the same muffler control knob as the Pearl Jupiter snare I just acquired
4) Snare wires (20 strand) say made in Taiwan but may not be original
5) Has stick chopper hoops
6) There are no ID markings of any sort anywhere except on the wires

I would appreciate any info regarding this snare...I know it is an Asian student snare of some sort...I am missing half of the tension rods and clips for this snare which I will soon be posting in the wanted section...

Thanks in advance

Cheers

This looks like a Taiwanese (MIT) drum to me. That strainer is very common on the 80s-90s student snares, and from the shot of the interior, that looks like the only strainer that has been on the drum. And yeah, the muffler adjustment knob looks like the Pearl design as well.

As to the maker, it is very likely from Pearl's farmed out factory, the ones that made CB700, etc. But those lugs aren't something I recall seeing before. Maybe someone else knows better.

Your snare drum could be made by Pearl under the name's like Burswood,Rock's,ete,ete.these names are from 2000 till now but you drum could also be from the 90's name's like Sunlite,C.M.C,or R.O.C. these and a list of other name's made these very low end lug snare's some with-out name's also....Mikey

Mikey, I also posted a thread in the wanted section for some tension rods and clips for this snare...Would you possibly have them?

Cheers

I have a Sunlite snare with that style of lug, but they are regular lugs, not through-lugs.

Are the lugs on your snare plastic or metal Johnni?

Cheers

Metal. But they are the same design. They are real lugs. What that looks like to me is a kids' beater, not a real attempt at a snare. I am thinking of letting go of my WMP soon. If you or anyone you know might be interested, it will, at the moment, be the 22-13-16, no snare as none came with it. They really are stunning in appearance, with only a handful of minor negs, like a cig burn soneone years ago tried to paint over, did a good job, actually. Other than that, I would have to get them out and go over each drum to remember anything glaring, which I don't think there is anything other than that I would consider a major flaw. Just the 16 is limited in range, unless I just don't know how to tune.

Yeah...it's not an expensive snare by any means, but, these single tension snares have a mystique about them I like for some reason...I also have a '54 Rogers classmate as well with the eagle badge....

As for your kit, I would be grateful to own a kit that you have restored Johnni, but at the moment I'm tapped out for space...Hopefully, someone else on the Forum would be interested...Is this the 3 ply kit? If so, this kit would make someone very happy....

Cheers
