What We Think

Brass snare drums are coveted by drummers across a wide variety of genres for their projection, articulation, sensitivity, and warmth. This Gretsch Full Range Hammered Brass Snare provides all of these qualities in an affordable, pre-owned package. Brass by itself exhibits warm tonal qualities, and the deep hammering patterns on this snare add new layers of warmth and complexity to the tone. The die-cast hoops on this drum add additional focus, leading to an incredibly versatile sound, with applications across a wide range of tunings and playing styles.

Manufacturer's Description from Gretsch Drums

The “Full Range” series is exactly what it says - a full range of snare sounds that can cover and adapt to any playing situation. A multitude of ways to add to your overall arsenal, all at a price that makes it easy to many different sounds.

Brass shells create a pleasantly warm tone that naturally bridges the gap between wood and steel snare drums. The cutting power of metal is present but balanced out by the dark complexity of brass. Gretsch takes the classic recipe one step further and applies a hammering pattern to the shell. This naturally reduces overtones and creates a powerful, focused sound. The Gretsch hammered brass snare drums are finished with Die-cast hoops, REMO drum heads, adjustable throw-offs and fixed butt plates.

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.
