Default WTB: Sonor Teardrop era chrome snare

Looking for a 14x5 D-444 snare. Player's condition is fine. D-426 or D-424 fine also. Mid-late 60s Teardrop era. Thanks.

Default Re: WTB: Sonor Teardrop era D-444 snare

Hi, I've got a Sonor D-424 snare in pretty nice shape.... It's in storage right now so I can't check the size but I'm not sure if it's 5" deep.... I seem to remember it being 4" deep but doing a quick bit of online research makes me think that it only came in 5" depth... any ideas?

Anyway, here's a couple of pictures. The snare mechanism is original and works but the round plastic cover is missing. Chrome isn't perfect but very good player grade and it sounds great. It has the original snare wires.

No idea about price... there's one listed on Reverb and Ebay for $901 (!) but not sure that is too useful as a guide.
