    the one directly above the snare . Slingerland type lugs . Yamaha ? This is a clip from around 1970 or so in Germany .

    i tried a quick google. Didn't know they were UK based. Maybe Sonor? The badge reminded me of Eames who was in business then...but too unlikely.

    Wow its a perfect wrap match for the 13 ludwig tom next to it.
    A 1969 Yamaha catalog shows identical (slingerland-like) lugs, but a perfect rectangular badge not used by Yamaha back then. Their rectangular badge comes in 1980. Best guess would be an old Yammie.

    No idea but that’s an insanely great performance. I’m a sucker for a dirty Wurly and a growly B3.
