Default Sonor 422 or 421

Which one was the metal 8 lug pointy off set teardrop lug, parallel action snare drum, and were they brass?..one of them was a wooden shell.

They were a 50-60,s drum so I don't expect many of you to have seen one...I do know they weigh a ton

The D-426 had the pointy longer lugs, the D-425 had the shark tooth type Teardrop.

No. The difference between the 422 and 321 is that they are wood. Same everything else.

There were no ferro teardrop snares I`m aware of. That was a 70 deal made with an auto manufacturer. It`s possible very early 70`s teardrop would be. SONOR only says metal snare in the cats before. Some are steel, others brass, but all ferro were advertised as ferromanganese.

The 426 should be Brass. The thumb rule is if it has no bead, it was brass.

I have a D421 snare drum. To the best of my knowledge, it is a single ply shell. It is a very nice drum, and I am lucky to have it. I also have a matching teardrop kit from ca 1958.

I attach a couple of pictures of the drum.
