From a Reader: "Help Me ID These Drums"

A reader of this blog wrote:

I have information to share with readers of the blog.

I own a drum that has no makers label inside, and indeed no identifying marks anywhere on the drum. The drum was restored in 1972 by Robert Atwell of Durham, Connecticut. I have enclosed photos of the drum. I would appreciate any help Field Drums could provide dating or identifying the drum.

  1. The man who restored that drum is still living in Durham. He still might have a copy of the bill for the repair.

  2. Would the anonymous person who posted the above comment please provide any more information that he/she may have concerning the Raleigh drum restorer?

    Thank you.

  3. I know nothing about a drum restorer in Raleigh, But I do happen to be in touch quite often with the one in Durham, Connecticut.
