    this took awhile to figure out what it was...I was into a parrallel throw snare drum kick for a little while, I saw this for sale .
    Very heavy snare.

    Also, on the same topic.
    I'll load pics of this kit tomorrow but the badge says it all.
    I have this whole kit with 2 mounted toms and a 14" floor tom and it sounds great.
    I am giving it to my buddy for his 11 year old nephew to start playing.
    He told me that he had heard his nephew had started playing a wind instrument and didn't want him To get beat up.lol. He knows I have more drums than space so I was happy to do it.
    But I will miss this kit , it's a beater but it sounds really good.

    Should I not post this in vintage?
    Should I repost in general?
    Thx, Jeff

    What's the purpose of the steel bar over the wires?

    I've heard of this model.
    It looks suspiciously similar to a Camco "Super 99"

    The wire is an outside the drum bar for the parallel throw.
    It raises and lowers both sides of the snare wires equally . IN theory to get a better sound.

    There's no badge , but I found online an advertisement that looked exactly like this.
    Cb700 ... they used the same drum to keep costs down but put a lot of R and D into the throw.

    The CB700 drums with the round "Wristwatch" lugs are from the "Mark" series, most of which were made for Kaman Corporation (owner and distributor of the CB700 brand, along with Gibraltar hardware, Ovation guitars, etc.) by Pearl and made of Asian mahogany in one of its forms. They also offered a rebadged version of the Pearl Free Floating Snare Drums in all their variations. I owned a "Mark Series" FFS snare and a large drum set from the series (see the second picture), and all of the mounting fixtures were stamped "Pearl" inside, and all other incidentals were identical to Pearl offerings of that time.

    The Internationale drums were the budget line at the time.

    Very Jupiter-like, at the least.

    These are great snares! A student of mine brings one over & the possibilities of variation in snare tension make this a very versatile drum. I was a teeny bit jealous when he told me what he payed for it.

    I payed 137.00 incuding shipping so I was happy with it.
    I felt that was a fair price.

    You have a Marc snare drum from the 80's.
    Tommy Wells used to speak quite highly of them.
