What We Think

Gretsch snares have an impressive performance that is as tonally distinct as their drum sets. This 6.5x14 USA Custom snare drum exudes that distinction, in a beautiful aesthetic and sonic package. 

Whether tuned high or low, the spread of dynamics makes it a seriously versatile drum and fun to play. Gretsch's stock Permatone heads really showcase the sparkle, clarity, and sensitivity that has been the driving force behind the Gretsch sound.  The gorgeous die cast hoops offer a rigid bite for rim shots and an undeniable side-sticking tone that will cut through almost any playing or recording situation. Coupled with 10 double-sided lugs that help deliver even tension regardless of your favorite setting, the tuning range on this drum is wide and clean. From backbeats to syncopated ghost notes, the performance is unwavering and delivers a sonic treat to your ears. If you are like us, you will find it hard to pull yourself away from this drum. Discover "That Great Gretsch Sound" for yourself today.
