Gretsch Adds Two New Hammered Brass Snares To Custom Snare Range [ Winter NAMM 2007 ]

United States
English
21 December 2006 — New for 2007, Gretsch’s G-4000 Custom series offering has been expanded to include 6″x13″ and 6-1/2″x14″ Hammered Brass snare drums. These drums complement the existing G4160HB 5x14 drum and feature a hammered brass shell that is finished in gleaming chrome. The randomly hammered pattern on the shell gives these drums an articulate, precise, slightly dry tonal characteristic that speaks clearly in any musical setting. The 6″x13″ drum can be tuned high to achieve excellent results in contemporary funk and rock settings while still retaining plenty of body in lower ranges; the 6-1/2″x14″ drum rocks with pure power at all tuning ranges.

New Gretsch Hammered Brass Snare Model #G4164HB.

  • G4168HB Hammered Brass Snare Drum 6″ x 13″, 8-Lug
  • G4164HB Hammered Brass Snare Drum 6 1/2″ x 14″, 10-Lug


Features include:

  • Hammered Chrome over Brass shell with classic center knurl pattern
  • Die-cast hoops
  • Lightning throw-off
  • Snap-in drum key holder
  • Gretsch Permatone coated batter, clear snare side heads
  • Classic “Drop G” Octagon badge
  • 42-strand snare wires (24-strand on 13″ drum)
