21 December 2006 — If heavy metal is what you crave, Gretsch has your fix. The Gretsch G-4164SS Solid Steel Shell Snare Drum is a 6-1/2″x14″ size addition to the G-4000 snare series. This drum features a very heavy solid steel machined shell that is 3mm thick at the shell wall with a 5mm thickness at the edges. This is one of the loudest - and heaviest - Gretsch snares ever produced and is capable of reaching enormous volume levels. Rim shots blister with piercing cut and projection; cross stick sounds cut with authority. Finished in Black Chrome, this drum looks as stunning as it sounds.
