My daughter was given a SilverStar shell by her School of Rock instructor. He wants her to learn how to build one. I want to get the proper strainer and butt plate to go with it. Can anyone help on which are the proper parts?

Someone smarter than I will know, but in the meantime, here's the page you need: http://www.tama.com/worl...rum/strainer/index.html

Make a few measurements and you'll find what you need.

Looks like a great project. Do you get to keep the drum?

The hole measurements match several different styles, I just want the correct style for that drum, especially with that low of a serial number. And yes, she gets to keep it.

That is so cool. I'm happy for your daughter, and Kudos to the teacher
for his style of encouragement.

That's actually a limited edition Birch with Oak outer ply snare in natural finish, which I believe they sold exclusively at Sam Ash with the whole kit. Amazingly, I can't find a single picture. Anyway, RARE drum!

Yeah, this was part of a limited Tamo Ash kit that was made in 3 different finishes. This one looks to be the Matte Tan Tamo Ash finish.



This snare drum would have originally had the MCS70A and MCS70B strainer and butt.

Not that it matters HW wise, but are we sure this is Tamo Ash and not Oak?
