Gretsch S1-6514 Silver Series Hammered Brass Snare, 14x6.5in
Gretsch Silver Series 14x6.5in Hammered Brass Snare
The Gretsch Silver Series Hammered Brass snare drums feature 100% Brass shells. Brass creates a pleasantly warm tone that naturally bridges the gap between wood and steel snare drums.
The cutting power of metal is present but balanced out by the dark complexity of brass. Gretsch takes the classic recipe one step further and applies a hammering pattern to the shell. This naturally reduces overtones and creates a powerful, focused sound. The Gretsch hammered brass snare drums are finished with Die-cast hoops, REMO drum heads, adjustable throw-offs and fixed butt plates.

Amazing snare drum. Very responsive. Great attack. Ghost notes are low. Rim shots have an unbelievably loud crack to them. If you want a snare that can cut right through rock music. Yet still be subtle enough to play funk and jazz. This is it. A really great snare drum.
