    Default What model and year is this steel drum?

    I've searched all over and can't find one like it. Was it only available outside the U.S.? I bought it to refurbish and would like to know more about what it is. Thanks. JW

    I'm guessing no one knows.

    John, I'm by far not a vintage drum expert however, since no one has chimed in, I'll try to give my two cents for what it's worth. Anyways, the drum definitely appears to have some age, i.e., condition as well as the Pearl label stating drum was made in Japan. Furthermore, the lugs don't appear to me to look like anything Pearl has manufactured. Lastly, I don't believe rubber gaskets were used under lugs until more recent years. Well, there you have it, my two cents. I hope it helps! However, let me add this. If this drum sounds pleasing to your ear, get it refurbished and enjoy your newly acquired instrument! Good luck!
