Gretsch's new wood/metal batter hoop takes the concept of contoured wood hoops one-step further. Featuring a 10- ply all-maple shell with 30-degree bearing edges, both the batter and resonant wood hoops are contoured to enhance the fundamentally warm wood tones. The contoured hoops emit a naturally open tone.
A very natural and open sound can complement any drum kit for any style of playing. High quality construction throughout means the Gretsch S-5514WMH-BLK Maple Snare can deliver whatever tone you require.
