  1. I recently came across a drum that is very similar to this one, the big differences I see being the badge and the height. I'm very interested in refurbishing this drum and was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of where to find another tension rod and a throw off for this drum. Any help at all would be much apprectiated.
