Default unknown German(?) snare drum

Dear all,

there is currently a 60s/70s snare drum offered on German ads I haven't seen so far - does anybody of you know the manufacturer? Interestingly, the snare wires are on the inside.

Best,
Friedrich

It's earlier german TACTON snare (after Lefima nationalization) with very interesting internal strainer.
Hoops is not original on this one -- they must be aluminium diecast type and very elegant shape.

I suppose that it was produced in 1961-1966, not later.
These conic lugs were two types -- single and double as here. These lugs also were used on different earlier models of Trowa drums but all the Trowa snares have had only six lugs against eight on Tacton.

Cheers,
George.
