Lug_921

Drumsets with center lug type 921:
For a certain time Star produced drumsets with center lugs as well. Well, I don’t mean
for snare drums - but toms and bass drums. Besides the type 921, there also existed
another one (unknown article number) which was quite simple in construction and
will be shown here in the future, too. Some of these sets were produced in small sizes
as well, dedicated to kids drummers: These are shown in the ‘Midget/Cocktail Drums’.
