I am clearing out snares I haven't played/used. I have a very nice Gretsch copper snare drum for sale. It is in very good condition with just a few small spots of tarnish. Shiny shell with chrome hardware. 10 lugs (with gaskets), modern Lightning-style Gretsch throw, fixed butt plate, square badge. It has a seam and is an import snare, I believe. It does NOT have hoops/heads/tension rods, though - just the shell/badge, throw, butt, and 10 lugs attached. $225.00 shipped via PP. Please ask any questions.....thank you and stay safe! (Sorry about the sideways pics!)

That's not a lightning throw
Yes, I don't know what Gretsch calls it, but I called it lightning because it has the same design - pull out out and down. But I also see they still make the Lightning so if you know what this one is called, please advise....thanks!

I have a Gretsch USA custom snare that was built up from a Gretsch NOS maple shell- hardware purchased from drum factory direct. Silver sealer interior: Tube lugs, DW Mag throw, Dunnet butt plate, stick saver hoops. Badge is 10th generation so made after 2006- I believe. Let me know if you'd like more pics. thanks!

JDA- For you to have the sheer audacity to jam that ebay link about a completely different drum into this person's for sale topic is not only extremely rude and uncalled for, it's downright unconscionable.
Hey, JDG has been trying sell the item for 3 months.
You call that sheer audacity I don't
I call it an honest suggestion

Hey, JDG has been trying sell the item for months. My suggest is he's asking too much. No use bumping a dead.. Why don't you instead of flapping buy it Steven.

YOU should mind your own business.
You don't need to comment on every. single. DFO topic.

I looked it up in Rob Cook's Gretsch Book and he didn't even have a name or model number for it. Simply refers to it as a drop style throw off. It was short lived used on "Full Range" snare drums from 2002-2005.
