The Gretsch USA snare drum
program is legendary - there's a wide range of tones available, lovingly built by craftsmen using only the top quality materials. Copper's inherent softness makes for a drum that is warm and articulate while at the same time having the cut and presence of a metal shell. The drum's almost wood-like tonal quality is perfect for situations that require both power and clear stick definition. The 1mm polished copper shell also comes with our Micro-Sensitive throw, 42-Strand snare wires, die cast hoops and a 'Snap-In' key holder.
