I only got 1 original rim with this...will post in a day or two...

All I know is it got sent to someone here from Russia as a joke (drum)...

I had to have it when I saw the excellent green marine Pearl finish...

Too bad it wasn't on a high end WOOD drum....

Yes, it's one of the soviet era snares - earlier low-end 'EPOIMI' drum from Engels town.
These ribbed lugs were not often to meet.

Cheers,
George.

Correct, that's a old soviet era snare. Most likely Epomi or RMIF. I had a couple of these, and they're awful. No edges, lugs with iron nut inserts, and horrid throwoff's. Some models had cast hoops made from the same alloy as the lugs, and they used to break under higher tuning. Throw it in a garbage bin where it belongs.

Here is my previous post , showing my similar Soviet drum.http://www.vintagedrumforum.com/show...ghlight=epoimi. It's the same hard perloid wrap but in Salmon Pink.
While, a lot of the components of the construction , seem odd , when compared to other snare drums ,it does have some fine features . I wouldn't exactly consider it garbage.It is generally well made ( the stand is superb) but has a strange quality to the sound due to the thin steel shell and wound cord snares. It should be regarded in the context of it's time and place. Are Slingerland toms with nailed on bottom heads garbage? Well, they are,actually, because they sound like crap but in the context of their time, they are kind of cool, if only because their is a popular culture history surrounding them. We don't have a popular culture history for such a snare drum, so it gets passed off as irrelevant.
It does have a fairly airy, sound . I could see using one in a studio , for a certain effect==one it would be hard to find in any drum, even a metal one made based on western construction parameters.

Sure, if you're willing to spend time with one, you can get it to sound decent, and get it to be something interesting, IMHO, there are better investments to be made, but to each his own What i did with the last of these drum i've encountered was removing the wrap to get a clean dulled metalic shell, gave it bearing edges with a hammer (because before that the edges were flanged flat), replaced the slotted screws with allen bolts and gave it a Evans genera dry over Hazy 300. After very long tuning it sounded interesting, but had it been my drum, i wouldn't justify such price.
