Original Billy Gladstone 6x14" Snare Drum in Black Lacquer w/ Chrome Hardware WOW!
Here we have none other than an ORIGINAL Billy Gladstone 6x14" Snare Drum in Black Lacquer Finish with Chrome Hardware!
This drum has an interesting history. Both Steve Maxwell and Harry Cangany
owned this drum at one point. Harry had acquired the drum from Chet
Falzerano, noted Gladstone expert. This drum was unfinished when Billy
died. Chet acquired the parts (excluding the strainer and rims) from the
same person from whom he purchased the S.L. Beimel Gladstone kit. He
later found rims, and then acquired an original Gladstone shell from
Dick Koff in 1993. Dick knew Gladstone but didn't order a drum from him.
He found this shell sometime after Billy passed away. Chet contacted
Arnie Lang, another noted Gladstone expert and builder of the
Lang/Gladstone replicas. Arnie has built Lang/Gladstone replicas for 10
years, making the molds for the parts from his own original Gladstone
snare drum. Arnie supplied the strainer and the nameplate that has
Chet's name on it!
Don't let this deal pass you by!
