  • Tapered Floor Tom - 16-inch top head, 14-inch bottom head. Maker?

    I've got a floor tom that I think is 1960s Japanese, but I'm not sure. Tapered shell - 16-inch top head, 14-inch bottom head. Three-ply shell w/reinforcing rings. I know Vox/Trixon made drums like this, but the hardware indicates otherwise, though it may be replacement lugs.

    Does anyone know if anyone other than Vox/Trixon made drums like this?

    Thx

      It's listed on ebay if you want it.

        looks pretty cool! does the taper have an effect on the tuning or sound?

          I suppose it does...I never really played it with a kit. It's probably not unlike tuning the reso head extra tight on a normal drum.

          Playing the 14" side might be interesting, though - super boomy sustain with the 16" reso.
