Gretsch® welcomes another new member to the Gold series snare line.
Gretsch® welcomes another new member to the Gold series snare line. The thin brushed
aluminum shell creates a drier, more sensitive tone due to the inherent qualities of alu-
minum. The tone is more focused with less overtones. These qualities are offset by the
sharp tonal contrast of the 13 ply rock maple hoops. The wood hoops are low profile to
enhance playing comfort and feature beveled edges to provide a unique look. Sonically,
these hoops produce an earthy, warm timbre with explosive cross-stick clicks. From deli-
cate buzz rolls to piercing back beats, the new Gold Series Aluminum/Wood hoops snare is
visually and sonically differentiated.
