A picture or two would certainly confirm what's what with your drum, as well as a close up of the serial number/badge.

Thanks Tommy. I could be reading the serial number wrong. All I've got are the ebay listing pictures which aren't great. Here's a link to the listing:

Hmmm... I suspect that there is a digit missing .. ( that we can't quite see? ) .. as you do have a 5 line shell which is most certainly LATER than 1963! The changeover to the 5 line from the 7 line shell happened in 1967 at approx. serial number #107XX and on.. so .. it is entirely feasible that there is a number 1 BEFORE the 2146 on your Dynasonic badge, and it "looks" like that just could be the case based on the pics in the auction. They could have been better for sure! All that said...

This drum could be as early as 1967 through early 1969. I guess you'll know for sure when you can scrutinize it close up. Regardless... pretty nice shell, and it's always FUN dating these! Personally, I own/play four of them: A 1964 COB/7line... a 1965 COB/7 line... a 1966 wood/WMP... and a 1967 wood/WMP. The 1967 is my MAIN gigging snare. It was just "one of those" that sounds GREAT covering ANY style of music that I have asked it to play. You can see it in the pic by my name above this post. Enjoy that drum when completed!

Hey Tommy...

Might be a digit at the end making it a 21xxx an. That would make itclose to mine.

True enough Vipuronr!... although I based my thought on how the badge looked to me in the pic. Bottom line: We'll know for sure when he gets the drum! :-D

Thanks guys. Tommy those wood Dyna's must sound insane. I've seen them listed on ebay for thousands.

I'll post again when I get the shell to confirm the serial number. Anyway, I thought $13 was a pretty good deal. What have I got to lose?

Thanks, I'm having fun already.

John

No way that drum can have a 4 digit number. Lowest Beavertail I have seen is my own #2811, with numbers higher than that having Bread and Butter lugs. There may be numbers lower than my drum, but that is smack right in the transition period.

Good luck on the rebuild.

2nd edition. There are inaccuracies, but overall, well worth the price. A great deal has been learned over the past ten years that is not in the book, but it is a wealth of information.

Tommy:

You mentioned the badge differences. Are the badges different for the earlier 5-lines of the late '60'sfor versus the early to mid-70's? On kind of the same subject, were there any 5-lines out of Cleveland or did the 5-lines same begin with Fullerton? Any badge differences Cleveland to Fullerton?

Thanks!
