Default 1960s Gretsch Dixieland Snare (for sale as well)

When I acquired this drum, it had been hanging around in a basement for some time. The original white marine pearl wrap had yellowed and cracked, the rims on the drum were warped, and most metal parts were covered in tarnish and such.

After some restoration, the drum now sports a natural satin finish, clean shiny hardware (all original except the hoops which were replaced) Earthone calf heads and Puresound snares. The drum sounds and plays great.
Here's a video of this drum (which is for sale on eBay as well).
