The Gretsch Brooklyn Series Black Nickel over Brass snare drum is the latest addition to the Brooklyn snare drum series.
This snare features a 6x14 classic brass knurled shell and is
plated in black nickel along with the lugs, Lightning throw-off, butt plate and Gretsch “302” 3mm/double-flanged hoops. Also included are 20-strand snare wires and Gretsch Permatone drum
heads. The brass shell resonates with smooth, musical tones and the 6x14 size gives this drum added versatility. The “302” hoops provide a timbre that is more open and ambient than traditional Gretsch die-cast hoops.
