Manufacturer's Description from Gretsch Drums

Staved snare drums are a brand new addition to the Gretsch snare drum line. Built in the same fashion as professional quality conga drums, the staving process utilizes solid, 7/8” thick, vertical-grain blocks of wood that are precision pinned and glued together to make the shell. Due to this design element, the shells are extremely durable and create a drum that stands the test of time. The thick oak shell and 45-degree bearing edge creates a dry and biting tone. The penetrating backbeat, brilliant crossstick sound and limitless headroom will cut through any amount of excessive stage volume. Finished in satin lacquer and Gretsch appointments, the oak staved snare drum brings a boutique look and feel to the vast Gretsch snare drum line.

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.
