Old pearl export snare?

That is exactly what it is. Not a terrible steel snare for practice.

Ok thanks, i was pretty sure thats what it was, but i wanted to be sure. I know that some of the BLX/MLX kits came with a pretty decent snare but i was pretty sure this wasn't the one that came with the kit originally.

That snare can be made to sound OK. Peace and goodwill.

Bread and butter steel snare. If your playing in a loud group situation at a crowded venue... no one will notice.

Looks pretty clean.

Eight lugs are great.

The tension screws look like they need a paraffin rub down after a bit of wire brushing.

Refresh both heads and the snare wires and it will sound much better.
