Hey guys, A few questions for all you DW historians: 1) What year did they switch from RIMS mounts to STM mounts? 3) What year did they start timbre matching and stamping the 'note' inside the shells? 5) What year did they stop using the hex vents (pictured)? I could be a little off on the years, but I think the timeframes are fairly correct.
The badges have gone from: Black (~1990-2000) Gold (~2001-2007) Silver (~2008-present) The timbre match, note and date stamp all seemed to coincide with the late 90s/early 00s switch from Keller shells to their own.
As always, we are learning and researching and adding new items to this web site.
