Hey gentlemen!

I recently picked up this Gretsch snare and am hoping that someone might be able to shed a little light on what it might be. My assumptions from the remnants of the sticker, is that this is a late 20s, early 30s Gretsch snare the borrowed Duplex hardware (like many of the drums of this era did). The shell is 3 ply with a rounded bearing edge, no reinforcement rings and the hardware is all minimalistic - single flanged hoops with a L-bracket butt plate.

Any references or info would be appreciated!

Thanks -
