That Gretsch Sound
SessionDrummerSteve, 21.07.2013
I was looking for a snare drum with musical overtones but that still retained a sharp bite. The chrome over brass combination provided me with a very musical ring and brightness while the hammering adds a more complex tone to the sound. The depth ensures the snare does not project as a thin sound at all. It sounds great at all tunings and really comes alive when played at louder volumes.

For rock / pop songs requiring a full and open snare sound, this is now my go-to snare in the studio and I can't wait to take it with me on stage when touring this summer (2013)!

Superb snare drum sound and quality Gretsch manufacturing.
The snare drum is carefully packaged and then placed in a carton, itself in another Grestch carton - all in a 3rd Thomann carton:) -

The snare is quite heavy 6 kg and very beautiful with this irregular surface. Hammered barrel made of brass with a chrome finish on the outside while inside the surface is left in raw brass. The irregular hammering has for vocation to slightly dry the sound by complicating the circulation of the harmonics, that gives him a very pleasant and rather modern side. As for the irregular visual aspect, it is beautiful with light.

The box is already adjusted and balanced (fundamental note of F for resonance and C # for striking) with a one-year warranty and a Gretsch tightening key in addition.
It sounds in all settings, if you take care to properly adjust and / or disrupt. It is sold with Remo Permatone skins.

The mechanics around the stamp (20 strands) is very nice, the trigger Lightning is very soft and fluid. It gives all its potential, its personality and its charm if one takes care to relax the tone instead of strangling the sound by sticking it to the resonance skin. Too often the demos on the internet give us to hear this type of settings.
For a very beautiful controlled sound for example, it is better to stretch the resonance skin and relax the skin of the striker and especially to relax this stamp to let the sound resonate and the stamp itself. It sounds great with other settings anyway.

The sound remains open, round with a nice projection? That great Grestch sound!
