Manufacturer's Description from Gretsch Drums

Designed to perform equally well on stage or in the studio, Gretsch Grand Prix snares are built around a stout 1.2mm aluminum alloy shell with a precise 45-degree bearing edge. Sonically, it possesses the bite of a metal drum, but with a more controlled fundamental note. Fitted with 302 hoops and Remo® Drumheads, this drum is a winning formula.

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.
