This aluminum snare shines with sensitivity and sharp, clean tones.
The Gretsch Drums G-4000 metal shell snare drums series is now joined by two new snares. Driven by the popularity and sonic reputation of the Gretsch 14" x 5" Solid Aluminum snare drum, these drums bring sonic diversity to the seamless aluminum shell. The 14" x 6-1/2" aluminum snare adds tonal depth and power, while the 13" x 6" cuts with added bite in the higher frequencies. Both very sensitive Gretsch snare drums produce warm, clean tones.
