This showed up on the vintage site, any idea what it is ?
I think it`s a D-444 and the person with it says it`s Brass (maybe)

I never seen one before.

Looks like the D-424, little brother to the D-426 King of Snares. This model did not have the parallel snare mechanism and was COB with a straight smooth shell; no bead. Page 5 of the 1965 US catalog has a write up on the 424 and the 426. I don't think the throw in the picture above is original, but I could be wrong. My D424 still has the original throw off with the obligatory missing cap to boot!

That`s what`s throwing me off. It has rounded edges and the inside drilling looks factory. Date stamp is March 1970

The lugs don`t have the bead cut-out.

See this guy on fee bay now. That one pic with the weld looks like somethings a little off about this snare both inside and out.

Good catch. The poster never showed the outside seam, I`ve never see a SONOR metal snare lapped. Wonder if it broke. I didn`t bother to look close at the inside seam but I now see tool marks.

Add the shipping costs and it asking too much for the kind of damage done to it. One of the last places to damage is a seam.
