Looking good.

So surprised that drum has no ply seperation from setting out in nature.

Was it hiding under a big fig leaf?

That is quite rare. I have never seen a Drumcraft field snare before. Must have been used by a field band.

I may have missed this earlier, but how did you clean the wood so nicely? Did you sand it? Looks very nice.

James, yes, I used an electric orbital sander, also repaired all the ply separation. Surprisingly there wasn't much of it.

So you need 3 T-rod's are they the fat metric odd size one's about 1 3/4 long end to end?.If so i have them,I will send them to you for a 1.00 just so you can get the drum all the way back together and playable.....Email me...Mikey

.....hehehehe.....field drum....and I thought I was the only one that would waste...er...spend that much time on a beat up MIC snare...hope it sounds at least decent. Use an Aquarian Z-100 on the batter.
