1940s Gretsch Broadkaster Orchestra Model Snare Drum White Marine: 7 x 14
1940S Gretsch Broadkaster Wood-Shell Orchestra Model Snare Drum
Size : 7 x 14
Finish : White Marine Pearl
Up on the block is a beautiful vintage 1940s Gretsch Broadkaster Wood-Shell Orchestra model snare drum in the original White Marine Pearl wrap. This drum is a bit of an oddity in that if features a 7" depth shell while the 1940s catalogs list only 5" and 6.5" deep shells available. The shell is of 3-ply construction with reinforcement rings, also a more rare build as this shells construction was more typical for Gladstone snares at this time. All of the hardware is original to the drum, including the die cast hoops, rocket lugs, Gretsch Response snares, and 3-point strainer. There are no issues with the drum and it remains in great condition with clean bearing edges.
