Default Can you tell me about this snare drum?

I picked up a used Pearl Export kit recently and the old owner threw in this old snare as a freebee. Can anyone tell me any info about it. It is a Coronet brand, and it is labelled made in Japan. Wondering how old it is? It sounds ok. I think it looks pretty cool. And I've never seen a strainer like the one on this drum.Name:  image1.JPG

This looks very much like one of the many stencil brands that were coming out of Japan in the late 60s and 70s. Drums with brands like "Stewart", "Kent", "Apollo" were probably all being made out of the same factory in Taiwan or Japan. I had a set of Stewarts about 10 years ago that I bought used for $100 and those drums were adequate for a few theater gigs, so they paid for themselves at the end of a couple of jobs.

The wood is probably some kind of poplar/mahogany mix, but to me they sounded fine for what I was using them for.

When I first read the OP, I thought I read something about him throwing it like a frisbee... I'm tired

Kent were American made drums.



That Coronet snare looks similar to an old 6 lug 60's CB I picked up years ago in a collection. Nothing special, more of a beginner snare with no value. As Bo said, those were cheap stencil kits being mass produced.

You hit it, it makes a noise.

As Bo said, generic made-in-Asia student snare drum, sold under 100's of different brand names.

When I saw it, may first thought was the same as Matt's. Stewart drums to use as an example had an identical badge although said Stewart. The strainer was identical if I recall correctly. I had a Stewart kit as a kid. Wish I still owned it. Not because it was that great, just because..................

Studio drummer Matt Chamberlin likes using theses cheap Japanese drums for certain things. hah.. sometimes even a bad drum sound is a good one!
Funny how it is still the same today. They all have this black hardware and that same wine red shiny wrap they've used for years. Every beginner kit i've seen has that same wine red color. I bet they have miles and miles of it ready to wrap thousands of kits of every name! lol..

As a kid, I think every available drum set within a 100-mile radio had either black, white, or wine red wrap.

All of them.
