Friedrich Gretsch, an immigrant from Mannheim Germany, founded a small shop making drums in Brooklyn in 1883. He was to create a dynasty lasting to this day. Yet Friedrich Gretsch died unexpectedly in 1895 before he could see it bloom.This is a hammered brass Gretsch drum, brass creates a pleasantly warm tone that naturally bridges the gap between wood and steel snare drums. The cutting power of metal is present but balanced out by the dark complexity of brass. Gretsch takes the classic recipe one step further and applies a hammering pattern to the shell. This naturally reduces overtones and creates a powerful, focused sound. The Gretsch Hammered brass snare drums are finished with Die-cast hoops, adjustable throw-offs and fixed butt plates.
