What We Think

The classic thin metal snare drum is one of the quintessential sounds that every drummer should have in their arsenal of sounds. Brass has long been one of the favorite metal snare drum sounds for session and touring drummers alike. The Gretsch Gergo Borlai signature snare drum has a crisp tone with great articulation. The die-cast hoops add a nice focus to the note and it is perfect for rimshots or side-sticking in live or session playing situations.


Manufacturer's Description from Gretsch Drums

Drum Phenom Gergo Borlai and Gretsch teamed up to develop a very unique addition to the USA metal snare collection. Together, they created what Gergo describes as a “sensitive, multifunctional, loud, and limitless” snare drum.

The key elements included a 4.25x14” 1.2mm brass shell, 45 degree bearing edges, 20-strand snare wires and 4mm Die Cast hoops, making this instrument one of the more distinctive in the Gretsch snare drum assortment. The shell’s surface is finished with an applied sand blast texture for a unique look and tighter overall sound.

A Lightning throw-off, Gretsch Permatone Control Sound head by Remo USA and an inside identification label specifies the year of production and is signed by Gergo Borlai rounds off this one-of-a-kind snare drum.

Currently, Gretsch’s three lines of professional-grade drums (the Brooklyn, Broadkaster, and USA Custom) are built by a small team of dedicated craftsmen in Ridgeland, South Carolina.
