This is, I believe, a model D518x snare drum from Sonor's early 1980s Phonic snare drum line up.  The engineering of this drum is impressive -- very German! Super crisp snare beds, very heavy 9-ply Sonor Phonic shell, original snare wires.  Snare wire tension is adjustable at both the strainer and the butt.  Roller bed strainer/butt work smoothly, like new.  Will include Sonor slotted drum key.

Drum is in excellent condition and sounds amazing (and LOUD!).  Very crisp and responsive at all dynamics.  These drums are increasingly rare, and they absolutely do not make snare drums like this anymore (not even Sonor).  

And did I say it was heavy???   ;)

Thanks for checking out this listing.  Please check out my others for more snare drums and drum related bits.
