Default John Grey and Sons Broadway snare drum??

I think I found something very nice. I really can't find any information about this drum. please help. It is a blueish sparkle color, has a badge on it that says "BROADWAY""John Grey and Sons""London England"
I hope someone recognizes it. here are a few pics. They are really bad but all I could do for now.





any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Nice snare! - but I don't think that the die-cast hoops are original ...
Please check out:

www.drumarchive.com

There you should find something about 'Grey', if you click on that name.

Greetings - R.

Broadway was John grey's mid range / budget rang, with Auotcrat being the top. The hoops are original john grey die cast, you'll probably find it a struggle to get them to take modern heads, so its best to try aquarain vintage series if you plan to plan the drum. Nice finish!!!
