Default Snare Drum Id

So I only have the one pic to go on. Can you identify this drum by the rail system it has. It does not appear to be Dynasonic. Any clues would be appreciated.

Looks like I found it. I think it is a 74 Tama kingBeat. Anyone ever play one of those?

Looks like it combines elements of a Dyna and a Super Sens.

Yes search results say that the shell sounds great but unfortunately the parts are pretty much impossible to find. They changed the design a couple of years later and offered the diecast hoops which improved it to what users say is Dyna levels. The replacement snares you can find are for later years and too short for this year.
This particular one looks to be missing the tuning knob and even the throw off lever. I won't add any value to this drum if I purchase the set. I would just put it on ebay at no reserve and hope someone likes a project, or needs the parts for theirs since they are hard to find.
