Vintage stop sign badge COB model 4160 5" 20 strand wires 1972
I have a similar one on layaway at a pawn shop and I am so excited to get it on my kit because it sounds great.
How did you specifically identify yours as a 1972? I only know mine is from the 1970s because of the stop sign badge and the general look of the whole thing.
How do you like the USA bell brass? I keep wanting a bell brass snare and it’s the only one I know of that’s priced somewhat reasonable. The vids I’ve seen if it sound great but I’ve never come across one in person.
How noticeable to your ears is the difference between the solid shell and regular USA Custom?
