Gretsch Brooklyn series metal snare drums add another professional and distinctive voice to the Gretsch Drums line up. The 5Óx14Ó chrome over brass shell (with Gretsch center knurl pattern) is a snare drum that has the broadest capability for bringing a pitch, tone and dynamic range that will lend itself to any kind of music. And it looks great wherever you use it!
All shells include Gretsch "302" 3mm/double-flanged hoops, the ÒLightningÕ throw off and butt plate, "Snap-in" drum key holder, 20-strand snare wire and Gretsch Permatone drum heads. The brass shells resonate with classic, musical tones and are extremely versatile. The "302" hoops provide a timbre that is more open and ambient than traditional Gretsch die-cast hoops.

Gretsch drums were born in Brooklyn, New York in 1883. The Gretsch drum design team molded the Brooklyn series by combining classic Gretsch elements while invigorating it with new attributes. Proudly hand crafted in Ridgeland, South Carolina, USA, by a team of veteran drum builders.
