remo roto toms
How can i tell the year of these remo roto's? I think early to mid 80's any info would be nice. Thank you.
One good way to determine the year of manufacture is to look at the way the toms are mounted on the rail. There are 3 basic configurations:
1. Up to about 1978, there was no arm to release the toms from the rail
2. From the late 70's to the early 80's there were carriage bolts with a built in tightening lever.
3. From early to late 80's was the 2nd generation arm which looked like a large bolt with a lever on which a large "REMO" appeared in raised letters.
