OVERVIEW

The Gretsch Gold Series makes your backbeat worth its weight.

Gold Series drums by Gretsch use high-grade materials consisting of boutique-level craftsmanship and appointments. Gold Series snares are designed for the discerning player that is looking to add a new, unique sound to their drum kit.

This Gold Series Cherry Stave snare shell is constructed of 30 7/8" precision pin-fit cherry staves. Stave shells use a fraction (less than 5%) of the glue of conventional ply shells and this snare responds with an open tone and a thick attack. A 45-degree bearing edge enhances sustain through reduce head-to-shell contact. The 14 x 6-1/2" drum is finished with 3mm triple-flanged hoops, a Bolt-on Gold Series badge, Remo USA heads and more.

Comments about Gretsch Drums Gold Series Cherry Stave Snare Drum:

I tried a variety of other hoops, the 3mm are right for this drum. Not crazy about the satin finish. Throw and butt should have been premium, not average. Really great for loud volume, high pitched applications (crack!). It has chrome-over-brass rod insertsin the USA lugs but cheap rods. I installed stainless rods. See pros and cons list for other info. Way overpriced like most nowadays, but especially for a 3rd world snare though the build is precise. Would not recommend at this price.
