GRETSCH RENOWN MAPLE 14 X 6.5 SNARE DRUM MOTOR CITY BLACK (PRE-LOVED)
We're very pleased to welcome another beautiful Renown Maple 57 edition snare, this time finished in Motor City Black. For those of you not familiar with the series, Gretsch introduced this series around 2011 as a limited run of finishes celebrating the American 1950's automobile industry.
The 1950's gave us Rock & Roll, the Cars were iconic and this was also the Gretsch boom time. In the 50's and 60's Gretsch would become one of the most iconic and recorded drum sounds, a legacy that continues right up to the current day, and to this day drummers still want that 'Great Gretsch Sound'
The distinct feature of the Motor 57 finish is the embossed aluminium chevron that divides the two tone White and Motor City Black finish. At the centre of the white portion on every drum resides the stunning Gretsch Drums logo finished in aluminium.
In true Gretsch style all the chrome work on this kit is triple chrome plated. (die cast hoops / rims mounts / mechanisms etc) The shells take design cues from the flagship USA Custom series - Silver Sealer, 10 ply Maple Shell and a 45 degree bearing edge
Like all the drums in the Renown series, it is very difficult to differentiate the performance between these and the more expensive USA counterparts. These drums are just so close in terms of design and build quality. This drum is very happy in all the tuning ranges, the DieCast hoops give it a fantastic crack when tuned up too. A really lovely drum to play.
This snare is used , the shells and metal work are in great condition, we have re-headed the drum with a new Evans G1 Coated so it is ready to go!
