Gretsch USA formula 6-ply maple shell is the cornerstone of "That Great Gretsch SoundTM." All shells are straight-sided, with hand cut and hand sanded 30-degree bearing edges and Gretsch Silver Sealer interior.
Gretsch snares have an impressive performance that is as tonally distinct as the their drum sets. Capable in high volume situations and delicate and sensitive in low volume scenarios. The spread of dynamics makes it a seriously versatile drum. The die cast hoops offer a rigid bite for rim shots and an undeniable side sticking tone that will cut through almost any playing situation. Coupled with 10 double-sided lugs, the tuning range on this drum is wide and clean.
All Custom Series snares feature legendary Gretsch maple shells and the famous Silver Sealer. This drum features chrome hardware and a Lightning throw-off. The snare comes standard with die cast hoops and ten double sided lugs. Also equipped with a coated Permatone batter head and a Permatone snare side head.
