Bump. Is it the drum or the drum skin? Either way it'd be an eye-catching front head, if it's functional as one.

I paid for it under an assumed name. Pictures to follow. AS IF.

....and the new proud owner isn't aware or it was not brought to his attention, that they produced then 150 examples, because they knew there would be a run. The original design is on a piece of paper 20 x 20....
