This is one of the cheapest drums with die-cast hoops. That fact, good Evans head (only top) and very good throw-off are only highlights of this instrument. The finish is tacky, fat, cheap and it can evem make problems while seating the head. The shell itself is some kind of untidy, I have even found few cracks in it. I doubt that this is just luan. I prefer low tuning and I could not reached that desired sound on this drum since it is buzzy and ringy. I could not find any benefit from 30 degree bearing edge, this drums had no "meat" of "beef" in its sound. At higher tunings it performs better, has pleasent crack and pop. However, I have sold it rather quickly.
I really have to thank Gretsch for continuing to keep ther drums classic and well-built with all the other big American brands going for flashy and quickly-assembled (Ludwig, ahem). Like other reviewers, the 7x13" was love at first swing when I tried it at my local shop. I had previously owned and returned a Ludwig Centennial in the same size for the low-quality shell construction and had given up hope on a 7x13" snare. Aside from the modern dimensions, this is a classic machine with simple P85-style throwoff and a nicely-grained vintage mahogany interior. The diecast hoops are well-formed with no abberations, the finish is solid on the drum, and the Gretsch logo is classy and simple. The tone is crisp with a deep fundamental and a wide tuning range. I use an Evans Power Center Reverse Dot on the batter and tune it medium-high. Very satisfying crack, that deep fundamental hits you right in the chest. Truly great drum. This is a snare that will still be relevant in 50 years!
I've owned this since December and love it! The model I have is the Marine White 6.5x14. With an Evans general dry this beast gets a great vintage crack and a nice loud volume. You can't beat it for the price.
i bought the 7"X13" about a month ago. i had dicenso's drum shop order both sizes for me to test at the store and on the first stroke i knew i had to own this drum. i put a fyberskin head on it and changed the snare wires, this produced a real deep throaty crack with lower overtones. PERFECT. just what i needed in my collection!
Beautiful mahogany snare that gives you a deep, vintage "crack" sound. Perfect for a drummer that wants a classic style snare but is on a budget.
I just purchased this snare a couple days ago and I love it. It was love at first swing. Its got a nice tight pop and warm tone. The thing I like most of all is there is no over ring. The snare also looks killer. My band loved it. I can't wait to use it at my gig tomorrow.
I own a 6.5x14 retro snare by Gretsch in a silver sparkle finish.The drum is beautiful looking and it delivers a huge, warm sound.I am very happy with this snare and it complements the smaller Gretsch snare that I also use.
