What We Think

This snare was designed for those who have the love of earlier eras of drums. Classic clean looks with vintage features such as an internal muffler and a micro-sensitive throw-off combined with 16 lugs help accentuate the low fundamental tone of this drum making this snare ideal for backbeats.

Manufacturer's Description from Gretsch Drums

The 6.5x14 USA Ebony Mahogany snare drum displays pure class and elegance while staying true to the heritage and history of That Great Gretsch Sound.  Its 16 lug pattern tastefully highlight the beauty and richness to the Ribbon Mahogany appearance and Gretsch’s distinguishable features such as the Micro-Sensitive Throw-off, tone control, and Snap-in key holder adds a timeless finishing touch to this beautiful drum.  Sonically, the drum has a wide dynamic range with a combination of very low to cutting highs depending on your tuning preference.  Fairly dry and ultra-sensitive, this drum is very user-friendly for Jazz, Classical, Orchestral, or studio use.  However, if you prefer to lay down a solid groove, this drum will easily compliment so many different musical styles.

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.
