"still has the original cowhide head on it." My point was that I doubt the Mapex head is the original cowhide head.Not sure of your point. I could and did put heads on my Dad's snare. Didn't preclude the fact that it was still in bad shape and needed to be re-done. Especially the edges and the inferior strainer.
Yeah, I'll take some more detailed pictures in the next day or so, so standby.Man it looks a lot like the 1909 Lyon And Healy military snare? Man that is so cool-not that it's so old but it has a history and a legacy. Would you mind taking a pic of snare bottom-so we can see how it sits on stand-man that stand is something else LOL.
