A really nice looking snare drum! The lugs look like a cross between Ludwig's Imperial and the typical Gretsch lug. Can you post a picture of the strainer and butt?

Thanks! I'm very happy to have it. It sounds just as good as it looks. The lugs on toms and bass drums actually look like rounded Rogers beavertails...

Pictures of strainer and butt-end are in this thread
but know that I swapped the strainer for a newer model. The older model has different lever. Note that it is damaged - the arm is bent quite a bit, but the mechanism works - just not as smoothly as the new one.
