A unique take on our Hammered Steel Series- we’ve added Satin Black 13-ply Rock Maple hoops to this drum to give you a slightly different take on rim shots and cross sticks. The wood hoops also temper some of the inherent overtones to this drum, giving you a balanced blend of warmth, and projection.

The 1.2mm seamless aluminum shell creates a drier tone due to the inherent qualities of aluminum- a focused attack with minimal overtones. Add the 13-ply Rock Maple hoops and you get extra warmth added to the attack along with a massive cross stick sound. The wood hoops are also 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- truly a unique addition to any snare collection.

We’ve taken a 1.2mm steel shell and added large hammering to it to focus the tone and give a slightly dryer overall attack. This not only adds to the overall sound but also gives these drums a stunning visual appeal, making them an integral additional to any setup. Available in 5, 6 and 8 inch depths.

Rosewood is a hard, dense wood and projects a powerful full-bodied sound. Rosewood’s natural beauty contrasts its naturally aggressive sound. The 9-ply shell has its own natural complex grain pattern is highlighted by the clear high-gloss finish. These snares also feature 30-degree bearing edges, die-cast hoops, ‘Silver Sealer’ interiors and an adjustable throw-off.

Rosewood Snare

Brass shells create 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.
