Our 6.5x14” Black Nickel over Steel snare drum offers an ideal balance of power, sensitivity, beauty, and value all in one snare drum. Taking advantage of its wide tuning range, you can achieve either a loose, slow and dry sound.
The newly designed 2016 Gretsch Renown is one of the most versatile drum sets ever made. Now, with one drum set, you can play with the sensitivity and touch to handle the smoothest grooves of the 1950s.
This patented design is the ultimate solution for using a foot pedal when playing cajon. The beater strikes a special bass soundboard from the inside giving you an amazing bass sound and unobstructed playing surface.
Gretsch has released only 25 of these gorgeous USA-made 4 ply snare drums - modeled after Paul Copper's personal 1962 Broadkaster snare - in Vintage Marine Pearl finish, and we've got 'em at the Drum Center of Portsmouth.
