This Gretsch 5 x 14 chrome over brass snare drum is in very good condition. The chrome over brass shell has light general wear with some light scratching to the finish and a couple of very small dings in the shell. The Gretsch stop sign badge has been damaged as half of the badge has been cut off. Please see pictures for details. The paper label is missing from inside the shell. The snare throw works well and the muffler functions well with a good felt. Both hoops have light general wear with some evidence of stick markings and very light pitting starting. No stand and no case are included.
