A solid-shelled, boutique walnut snare handbuilt by Gretsch veterans in the USA.
Gretsch G-5000 8-ply 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.
The flavor of walnut with the strength of the shell. Order today.
