Default Latest Score: Kent Snare

One of my favorite local music stores is changing hands and they've had a big blowout inventory clearance sale before the new owners take over. This Kent snare with the nifty case was found in the basement and I scored it for $50. It needs work, obviously; new heads, snare wires, a working strainer and butt plate, as well as a good cleaning, so it'll be a project. I picked up all the parts I need to restore it on sale as well.

But, I thought, would anyone have a Kent strainer in good condition? I'll post in the Wanted section.

Meanwhile, what did the Kent company call this finish? It appears to be rare.
