Manufacturer's Description from Sonor

10 years after the first extremely successful collaboration for a Signature Snare with the jack-of-all-trades and close #SONORfamily member Benny Greb, the Benny Snare is back and has even brought reinforcements. As Benny would say: it’s not just an update, it’s an upgrade. The existing 13 x 5.75“ Beech snare with outer veneer of Scandinavian Birch now comes with a Bubinga wood inlay and classy 1950s Vintage Teardrop Lugs. It also features the superior Dual Glide snare strainer. Not to forget the new dampening mechanism called the “MonoRail”, of which every drum has two, installed with Benny’s favorite dampening materials, called “The Felt”, and “The Sheep” – for maximum flexibility, from funky to big and fat sounds. Did we say that the dampeners are interchangeable to give you even more sound options? 
But there is more: the all-new Benny Greb Signature Brass model. It features a Vintage Brass Finish and Teardrop lugs on a 1.2mm Brass shell. It has the warmth and roundness typical for this material. Pleasant overtones accentuate edge rim shots. The dimensions – copied from the original wood version – gives it bottom end and snare sensitivity. All of which makes it Benny’s favorite metal shell snare drum ever made.
