This Sonor D472  14" x 2,5" "Pancake" snare, stamped 309, is a drum I sourced and restored for the completion of the Teardrop drumset. Cool thing is the case. Seems that it was used to send filmrolls to the cinemas. A (incomplete) tag inside states, that this was the box of a Grace Kelly Western. I've refitted the case with a new strap and handle. Fits perfectly!

Pics from the workbench…
The wrap of the D472 was heavily soiled. After wet sanding (up to 12.000) and polishing the finish was shining like new!
