An amazing snare with that great Gretsch sound! I bought this a few weeks back to just experiment with. I am new to Gretsch snares and man, was I blown away by how good this snare sounded! This snare is a 6 ply (I believe a combination of maple and gum).

The Diecast hoops have two areas that looked like the players over the last 60 years concentrated their rim shots. It does not affect the sound or its playability at all.

When I bought the drum, the previous owner gave me the correct snare throw lever to match with this styled snare. Unfortunately, I am not the greatest with tools and this needs a small tap to get the area prepped to install the new throw lever. Apparently it is very common for a micro sensitive throw to loose the original lever because of the design. The actually ability to turn the wires on and off is still in tact and I used the function regularly.

Outside of the above mentioned, the snare is in players condition and is ready for the next owner to enjoy the 60s Gretsch sound.

Let me know if you have any other questions! I am not a collector so I may not know all the specifics but I will certainly do my best to answer.
