Gretsch S1-6514 Gold Series Seamless Aluminium Snare, 14x6.5in
Gretsch Gold Series 14x6.5in Seamless Aluminium Snare
Gretsch welcomes another new member to the Gold series snare line. The thin brushed aluminium shell creates a drier, more sensitive tone due to the inherent qualities of aluminium.
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 delicate buzz rolls to piercing back beats, the new Gold Series Aluminium/Wood hoops snare is visually and sonically differentiated.
