Manufacturer's Description from Gretsch Drums

Gretsch brushed brass snare drums combine the pure sound of a brass shell with a boutique, hand finished appearance. A specialized hand brushing process is used to carefully apply the shell finish; the result is a distinctive two-toned, vintage patina color effect. Since each shell is hand-brushed, no two shells have the exact same appearance.

Specifications include a 1.0 mm thick beaded brass shell, 10 classic Gretsch lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, adjustable side-pull throw off, and Evans USA drumheads. These features produce classic, full-bodied snare drum tones with a wide tuning range to deliver excellent performances in a wide array of musical settings.

About Manufacturer

For 135 years, the Gretsch Drum Company has produced classic American instruments that drummers the world over covet. The signature “great Gretsch sound” has been utilized by numerous classic and modern drummers alike; Max Roach, Tony Williams, Cindy Blackman, Taylor Hawkins, and Vinnie Colaiuta are just a few examples of master drummers that have sat behind Gretsch kits. 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. Gretsch also offers a number of affordable import lines that allow beginner and intermediate drummers to be a part of drum history and play behind a Gretsch set.
