Default Leedy Shelly Manne snare wires

I recently picked up a nice Shelly Manne wood shell snare drum in Blue Satin Flame Pearl. Fantastic drum in need of a cleaning, BTW - the foaming bubbles and toothbrush method works great! The one rivet in the strainer is broke loose too, but that I can handle.
It is missing the original snare wires and I was wondering if there are aftermarket snares available for these drums? I have a set I can use on it with plastic strips that I had on the COB model I already have, for which I scored a NOS set a couple years ago. I can rivet if needed but I have no metal strips.
Also, anyone ever disassemble one of these Broadway throws?
Any thoughts appreciated.

Default Re: Leedy Shelly Manne snare wires

Puresound was the only company selling wires for this drum. It was the PRS1416. These were extended wires, with a short metal tab for the butt end and a longer metal tab for the strainer side. You had to drill a hole for the strainer side yourself! Unfortunately, they're no longer in production, but you might find them online from time to time. Hope this helps.

Here's a good link to show/tell all about it...
