Default anyone know what these are (toms/octobans?)

http://edinburgh.gumtree.com/edinburgh/19/52374719.html

Ive just bought these... for 5 it seemed a no brainer.

They have 6" heads, and the lugs have "M's" engraved into them. The mounting is a kind of slide on bracket (no idea how i'll mount them yet)

would value any ideas

well they need a good clean.. and they have a tiny crack starting where the mount screws in.. but for 5.. who cares

they sound pretty good, and have nice remo heads on them. Just need to find the cheapest possible way to mount them to something, or it defeats the point of buying them :)

the pic makes them look much cleaner than they really are lol

the rims are quite scuffed, and the shells have many scratches. But as i say.. for a fiver... its not that big a deal. They will just add to the range of sounds my kit can produce.

In the 80's there was a company called Dragon Drum that made drums that looked exactly like the Tama octabons.

So it could be those.

Or maybe someone just made them.

Either way, good find!

They look like the old Dragon drums Bruford used to play back in the 80's King Crimson.

Those fittings are standard timbale fittings found on many budget lines over the years.

well so far no luck finding something to mount them on. I may end up fashioning something from a bent piece of metal, and a standard drum clamp.

i may do some more DIY on them in that case... by putting on two floor tom mounts and using those to slip some kind of tom stand through.
