GRETSCH USA G4164PB 14 X 6.5 PHOSPHORUS BRONZE SNARE DRUM (PRE-LOVED)
Here we have an incredible sounding Gretsch USA Bronze snare. This is one of the recent additions to the USA snare range, USA Snare Drums all have die cast hoops. 42-strand snare wires, the centre knurl pattern and Gretsch Snap-in key holder.
The Bronze model also has the Gretsch Lightning Throw Off. Bronze is used for cymbals since many generations. It is very musical and its sound can be classified between brass and copper models Gretsch offer. The Gretsch USA Bronze Snare has a slightly deeper, darker sound than comparable brass models but is still rich in high-end and allows clear stick articulation. From our perspective after having a listen it has the depth of tone similar to that of a wood shell but with a really nice tightness and control. If you haven’t heard one of these it is well worth a listen.
This one is a PreLoved model, it has not been out of the shop long, the original owner collects snares, it is still fitted with the original Gretsch CS White Dot head with lots of play left in it.
The snare has a polished, 5mm strong bronze shell and being a 6.5 deep shell is a 10 lug model.
