Product Description

Mike Johnston Teams Up With Gretsch To Set a New Standard

There a are a few points in Gretsch history to bring us into the future; the perfect feeling internal muffler, the iconic lightning throw off, and the elegant New Classic lugs.  Mike was adamant that this snare drum would work in any situation, an ideal professional snare drum at an attractive price with Made in the USA Gretsch quality.  

After 9 months of prototyping, feedback, and thorough evaluation, the Brooklyn Standard was born.

Every specification is purposeful in the way it affects sound, dynamics and playability of the drum. The combination of a 5.5x14 Brooklyn formula shell, double 45 degree bearing edges, batter side tone control, 42-strand snare wires and 302 hoops make this drum a must-have for any serious snare collection.

 An inside identification label specifies the year of production and is signed by Mike Johnston.
