Gretsch Brooklyn series metal snare drums add another professional and distinctive voice to the Gretsch snare line up. All shells include Gretsch “302” 3mm/double-flanged hoops, Lightning throw off and butt plate, “Snap-in” drum key holder, 20-strand snare wire and Gretsch Permatone drum heads. The brass shells resonate with classic, musical tones and are extremely versatile. The “302” hoops provide a timbre that is more open and ambient than traditional Gretsch die-cast hoops.
All USA Custom Series wood snare drums feature legendary 6-ply Gretsch maple shells and are available in a wide variety of sizes, finishes, snare throw-offs and other options. Finish options are Nitron Covered, High-Gloss Lacquer, or Satin Lacquer. Throw-off options are the classic Gretsch Lightning or the contemporary designed throw-offs by Dunnet. All wood snares feature chrome hardware with Die Cast Hoops and 20-strand steel Gretsch snare wires. 6.5×14 snares are available in 10, 16, or 20 lug configurations. Gretsch’s proprietary snare bed is cut into all wood drums to maximize snare articulation and response. Our classic key holder and tone control options are available, as they have been for over 50 years.
