Grestch's Full Range Maple Snare Drums have that “Great Gretsch sound” that is versatile enough to be used in any musical setting. The 10-ply maple shell has a fat, warm, full bodied sound and is extremely resonant and just cuts through everything. It also has a dark, transparent finish that allows the beautiful wood grain to show through.

As important as it is, the shell is still only one part of the drum. Gretsch knew that their choice of hardware was just as important as the shell itself.  The folks over at Gretsch hand-picked some of the finest parts including die-cast hoops, a traditional style throw-off, adjustable butt plate, 10 dual sided lugs, and a 20 strand snare wire.

There are many benefits to using die-cast hoops on a snare drum.  For one thing the raised edge helps give you a sharp, articulate crack that makes playing side stick and rim-shots a breeze.  The added weight of the hoops eliminate many harsh overtones one gets from an overly sensitive snare in addition to helping keep the drum in tune longer.  The 10 dual ended lugs help make tuning a breeze, and give the drum a classy look. The combination of the traditional style throw-off and adjustable butt plate give you steady and precise snare tension every time. With an unrivaled commitment to excellence it’s no wonder why players such as Max Roach, Mike Johnston, Elvin Jones, Taylor Hawkins, Chick Webb, Stanton Moore, Charlie Watts, Bill Stewart, & Louie Bellson all played Gretsch.
