Hey guys,

I recently picked up a 1930s Leedy Broadway snare. Everything is in pretty good shape except for the parallel throw looks like it has a few pieces busted off. Do you guys think that this would be repairable? I’m just concerned with being able to find the correct parts and not having to pay and arm and a leg for them. The shell is in pretty great shape, so I could just always retrofit a modern strainer and butt, but I wanted to get all you guys opinions on things.

Thanks!

Andy

I suggest checking with Mike Curotto as he has a number of these drums and also does restorations. I would guess that these parts are difficult are difficult to find... Mike will know.

Great looking snare! I agree with campbellh that those parts will probably be hard to find. I'm no expert, but here's a couple screenshots of my project....

You can buy the reproduction extension arm and knob from Olympic Drums (they're not cheap though!): https://www.olympicdrums.com/hardware/parts/leedy-extension-arm-short

Hope this helps, happy to snag some more photos of what I've got if you need them.
