    Cleaning out all of my odds and ends, so thanks for indulging me. This is another snare I've not been able to find anything about. Not sure if it's even that vintage. 3 1/2" x 14" missing hoops, rods, badge. Has throw and butt as shown.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Atleast 80s. Maybe not MIJ but MIT or MIC.

    That looks like one of the Cannon snares that St. Louis Music (?), Midco and a few other distributors used to sell. Our store used to sell the piccolo versions, and they weren't half bad, but definitely not TOTL. That's all I can remember about them.

    Once again lanebune I have something similar.
    It's a brass piccollo . Lugs are different but throw is close.
    It is the same short fat throw but a different face.
    I'll take pics of it but it has no badge so I don't know if it would help you.

    Here's my mystery snare with short fat throw.


    I've also seen some new gibralter throws that are close.

    None of these are probably of any help.
