Used Gretsch Snare Drum Blue Sparkle 1960s

Gretsch Round Badge 1960s snare drum in blue sparkle. What a beauty! The blue sparkle wrap looks stunning, it's got a nice depth to it and is great under lights. It's got a really nice balance to the sound; the signature maple shell has aged gracefully and has a lot of warmth and body, while the die-cast hoops and 30 degree edges add a nice little touch of brightness and attack. The 6" deep shell offers great tuning range; she sounds sweet at a variety of tunings. These drums are built to last, and this one has held up beautifully through the decades, condition is pretty good. Grab a great vintage workhorse that you can pass on to your grandkids!
