      A solid-shelled, boutique walnut snare handbuilt by Gretsch veterans in the USA.

      Gretsch G-5000 Walnut snare drums are USA made in Gretsch's Ridgeland, SC Custom Drum Shop and include 30-degree bearing edges, a Lightning throw-off, die-cast triple-flanged hoops, 20-strand snare wires and Evans USA coated G1 batter head with hazy 300 snare side. The shells are finished in a gloss natural to enhance the wood’s intrinsic beauty.

      The Walnut shells are handcrafted and include solid maple reinforcement hoops to ensure true shell roundness. Walnut offers a dark and throaty fundamental timbre, but still projects plenty of attack and tonal presence.

      Due to the single-ply shell characteristics and handmade quality, each new G-5000 snare is capable of projecting vibrant, cutting tones that are balanced by an overall warm and complex sound.

      Features

      • Solid walnut shell
      • 30-degree bearing edges
      • Lightning throw-off
      • Die-cast 2.3mm triple flanged hoops
      • Eight or ten-lug configurations (13" or 14" snare)
      • 20-strand snare wires

      The flavor of walnut with the strength of the shell. Order today.

          Comments about Gretsch Drums G-5000 Walnut Snare Drum:

          I have to say, I'm over the moon with this snare!
          In recent years, I have found myself going lower and lower in terms of tuning, but never really been totally satisfied with the tone I've had. I only use 13'' snares and have found with the various snares I currently use (either birch brass), I can get the pitch I want, but after playing this snare, realised they lack any type of body.
          Within about 10 minutes I had 'the tone' I've been looking for. A deep pitch, but with a whole load of beef behind it!
          And just out of interest, I've tested a bunch of different tunings, all the way up to high, loose to tight snare wires etc... and it still keeps it's character.
          Absolutely made up with this snare!

            Comments about Gretsch Drums G-5000 Walnut Snare Drum:

            This snare drum has exactly what I've been looking for. I have a few other snare drums that have really bright shell tones, so when I really start to play into them, the highs take over and I lose the warm throaty sound at that dynamic. I wanted a snare that can be snappy and project but still keep a sorta darker warm tone. This snare drum is exactly that. I can play hard and this snare still sounds like a "warm blanket" if you know what I mean. Great for a retro sound. I bought 6.5*14 size because I wanted a bigger sound, but the 13*7 is great too, I'm sure. There's no way to out-tune the warmth in this drum, and that's exactly what I want. Love it.
