Default Help with rare Snare Drum!!

Hi everyone, thanx for reading i'm new in this forum even though i have visited this page many times before but now i decided to join. I'm asking for some help reggarding a "rare" snare drum, i think based on the info my father gave me that it is an 80's pearl steel snare drum that came with a transaprent acrylic pearl set that my cousin purchased back then. what i kow is that the acrylic set was used and maybe the guy who sold it to my cousin just gave him this snare instead of a Pearl. i don't know. i have search for some info on the web and found nothing so far. i think it's 5.5" x 14" Steel, it is considerably heavy, and it has a "parallel" system, it means the snare wires descend "parallel" using a tube that runs from inside the drum from the throw off to the butt end, sorry for being so redundant., i would really appreciate any info you have about it. i think i replaced almost all lugs i mean they are not originals but i also think the ones that came with it were the same shape. (i think those are pearl style lugs right?) thanx in advance hope to read from you soon.

Hi Mark,
Well I don't know what snare it is, but I know that we have the exact same snare at our brass band. I look the next time whether ther is a badge on it or something!

I may be mistaken, but it looks like it may be a Pearl Professional Series snare. I was looking at one near me that was for sale, and it had the exact extended strainer, but it was missing all of the pieces for the mechanism to work properly. If im not correct, I apologize, and good luck in finding out what it is!
Ludwig Element 6 piece. Axis X pedals. Kasza cymbals. I play the crap out of my drums.
