S1-6514-BRH (6.5 x 14)
S1-0514-BRH (5 x 14)
Brass shells create a pleasantly warm tone that naturally bridges the gap between wood and steel snare drums. The cutting power of metal is present but balanced out by the dark complexity of brass. Gretsch takes the classic recipe one step further and applies a hammering pattern to the shell. This naturally reduces overtones and creates a powerful, focused sound. The Gretsch hammered brass snare drums are finished with Die-cast hoops, REMO drum heads, adjustable throw-offs and fixed butt plates.
S1-0514-BSH (5 x 14)
S1-6514-BSH (6.5 x 14)
S1-0814-BSH (8 x 14)
We’ve taken a 1.2mm steel shell and added large hammering to it to focus the tone and give a slightly dryer overall attack. This not only adds to the overall sound but also gives these drums a stunning visual appeal, making them an integral additional to any setup. Available in 5, 6 and 8 inch depths.
S1-5514-RW (5.5 x 14)
S1-6514-RW (6.5 x 14)
Rosewood is a hard, dense wood and projects a powerful full-bodied sound. Rosewood’s natural beauty contrasts its naturally aggressive sound. The 9-ply shell has its own natural complex grain pattern is highlighted by the clear high-gloss finish. These snares also feature 30-degree bearing edges, die-cast hoops, ‘Silver Sealer’ interiors and an adjustable throw-off.
S1-6514A-WH (6.5 x 14)
The 1.2mm seamless aluminum shell creates a drier tone due to the inherent qualities of aluminum- a focused attack with minimal overtones. Add the 13-ply Rock Maple hoops and you get extra warmth added to the attack along with a massive cross stick sound. The wood hoops are also low profile to enhance playing comfort and feature beveled edges to provide a unique look. Sonically, these hoops produce an earthy, warm timbre with explosive cross-stick clicks- truly a unique addition to any snare collection.
S1-6514WH-BSH (6.5 x 14)
A unique take on our Hammered Steel Series- we’ve added Satin Black 13-ply Rock Maple hoops to this drum to give you a slightly different take on rim shots and cross sticks. The wood hoops also temper some of the inherent overtones to this drum, giving you a balanced blend of warmth, and projection.
S1-0713-ASHSN (7 x 13)
S1-6514-ASHSN (6.5 x 14)
Gretsch specifically developed the 7-ply Gretsch Formula Ash shell for a sharper, more aggressive sound characteristic but with a controlled sustain. We also offer these drums in 6.5x14 and 7x13 configurations to cover any situation. The visual aesthetic of the shell lets the true natural beauty of Ash show through, as no two drums look alike.
S1-0610-ASHT (6 x 10)
The Gretsch Ash side snare is the perfect complement to any drum set or percussion rig. The 10-ply Ash formula shell combined with the convenient Gretsch GTS mounting system creates a snare with a piercing back beat and convenient mounting option.
S1-6514W-MI (6.5 x 14)
The Gretsch Walnut snares add another sound and look to the “Full Range” line. The 8-ply walnut shell produces a snappy attack but with a punchy low end- great for lower tuning while also adding extra bottom to higher tunings. We’ve also added a dual maple inlay to the outer ply, giving this drum a look that is as unique as the sound it makes. Due to the construction process and organic aesthetics of walnut, no two drums will look alike, which creates a boutique vibe.
S1-0814SD-MAH (8 x 14)
Dubbed the “Swamp Dawg,” this multi-faceted drum is a versatile addition to the Full Range series. The deep 8"x14" mahogany shell, when tuned low, creates a swampy, dark, throaty, “low-fi” timbre reminiscent of historic recordings from the seventies. At mid and higher tunings, the Swamp Dawg cuts with saturating attack and full body. The 6-ply mahogany shell, 8 tube lugs and triple flange hoops work together to let the drum open up and breath while the 42-strand snare wires and double-ply, coated Remo® Emperor batter head give the drum extra bite and playability.
TAYLOR HAWKINS SIGNATURE SNARE
S-6514-TH (6.5 x 14)
Built to Taylor’s spec, this drum is a workhorse- a drum that just works no matter the room, the acoustics, the 1.2mm Black Nickel Plated shell is balanced, full and responsive to any style. Built for power out of the box, we also include a Coated Remo Emperor ‘X’ batter head, 2.3mm steel hoops, classic lugs, 20-strand snares and Taylor’s signature badge- all at a price that makes it easy to add this drum to any snare arsenal.

S-6514A-SF (6.5 x 14)
Developed in conjunction with the legendary Steve Ferrone, this snare features a 6.5"x14" beaded, seamless aluminum shell that produces a dry, focused sound with slightly muted overtones. The 2.3mm triple-flanged hoops and adjustable throw-off are finished in triple-chrome plating as are the Gretsch tube lugs., The thin shell and triple-flanged hoops allow the drum to open up and to also create the volume needed for any musical scenario.
