Gretsch 5.5x14 original snare drum 1958 Anniversary Sparkle

Sorry, this listing has ended.


This is the "best of both worlds". This is a fully original 5.5x14 1958 Gretsch 75th anniversary snare drum in original Anniversary Sparkle. (Anniversary sparkle was never in the Gretsch catalog as an official color because it was only intended to be used for the 1958 75th anniversary. As a result, very few drums exist and this color was gone completely within a short period of time). These drums are very rare. This drum is complete with the normal round badge and also has the original "anniversary" tacked badge (which was only placed on the drums made in 1958, and even on those it is often missing). The drum is in excellent condition and the color is very strong as you can see. The original hoops and strainer are included, but the drum also has new Gretsch 302 hoops on it and also the new Gretsch Microsensitive reproduction strainer (which fits the original holes), and new Puresound wires. As a result, you have a gig-worthy true vintage drum that looks and sounds great, and you also have the original hoops and strainer to include if somewhere down the line you sell the drum. "Best of both worlds"!
