Default What is this?

Hi
Webmaster will help me to post some pictures on a snare that I have. The drum is sold as a Slingerland but I doubt it is. But what is it?
Can somebody help me out?

Regards
Mikke

Thanks for the question and I wanted to complete the post even though I emailed you behind the scene. This way other people might get help from this post. I do get a lot of people asking what a drum is and if it is a real Slingerland etc.. About 90% of the time they are Japanese Copies. The easiest way is to look at the wood. The grain runs up and down.

This particular drum also has a Clam Shell strainer and Gretsch Lug Copies.

I hope that helps others with the same type of drums and saves a few people from buying drums from sellers that are not sure exactly what they have.
