Hi guys,

I need a set of Responso Snares for 1950s Gretsch Snare Drum. Need what would have been on the drum in 1957.

Let me know what you have!

Thanks,
Retro

I may have either an 8 or 10 strand set.....let me check. I don't know what would have been on that snare, though......wondering when the 42 strand wires came into being.

Here are the wires - they are 16 strands but 3 strands are missing (2 on one side, 1 on the other). Pretty straight otherwise & metal ends can easily clean up. Not sure what they are worth or if these work for you. They measure about 13" from tip to tip ends (wires are almost 11.5") - they came off a 6.5x14 RB Stage band snare. PM if interested....thanks.
