Default Anyone need this MIJ Snare to match their kit?

Greetings,

I am cleaning out the supply closet and have this MIJ Shell that I am not using. It's a pretty rare wrap, so I though someone out there might need it to complete their kit.

Lug hole spacing is 1-23/32" (just shy of 1-3/4"). Odd hole pattern for the butt plate (photo 3). Looks like normal MIJ strainer holes (photo 4) and standard internal tone control holes. Drilled for 6 lugs, strainer, butt and internal tone control. I don't have any of the parts, I acquired it just as it is, a blank shell. 14" head and 5.5" deep (actual depth is 5 3/8").

It should clean up nice. In photo 2 there is what looks like dust on the wrap, but it's not. It's not a sticky residue either. It almost seems like spray paint over-spray or something. Anyway, it should come off with Goo Gone (I haven't tried). It's isolated just to that area. There are also two good size gaps or seams on the inside of the shell (photo 5). You can leave as is or fill them with wood filler.

If you cover the cost of my packing materials and shipping, it's yours. Just let me know.

Thanks,

V

Although I don't need any more drums to restore, I just wanted to commend you, V for posting this! This is what the Forum should be about...members helping each other out. Lately, I haven't seen a lot of this. It seems that every time I read a new thread, it inevitably comes down to dollars or what make of drums will fetch the highest price. Your thread is really a breath of fresh air! Thank you , V!!!

Thanks for the kind words, gents!

I'm just trying to "pay it forward" and keep the positive vibes flowing.

I know idrum4fun (Mark) has helped me out in the past with a part I needed (only charged me shipping), so I'm just trying to do my part as well.

The more we can all spread the positives, the better off we will all be!

Yep, Mark is another member who is always there for us. He's a great contributor, a positive person and very knowledgeable as well. Mark is another prime example of why I enjoy this forum so much!
