The Gretsch Full Range snare drum with Wood/Metal Batter Hoop features a 10-ply all-maple shell with 30° bearing edges. Both the batter and resonant wood hoops are contoured to enhance the fundamentally warm wood tones. The batter hoop also features a flanged metal hoop that is firmly affixed inside the wood hoop. The top of the Gretsch snare's metal hoop extends slightly above the wood hoop, so metallic tones naturally blend with warm wood tones when striking rim shots or rim clicks. The metal hoop on the Full Range snare also adds an extra measure of durability. The resonant-side contoured wood hoop is made without the flanged metal insert.
The Gretsch Full Range snare's resonant-side hoops have notches at the throw-off and butt-plate positions, which allows the throw-off mechanism to fully engage and disengage with ease. The snare drum's batter-side hoop is also notched to allow easy access to the throw-off lever. A Gretsch drop-style throw-off augments the functionality and visual appeal of this maple snare drum.

Comments about Gretsch Drums Full Range Maple Snare Drum with Wood/Metal Batter Hoop:
This is an all around, great snare drum! Very versatile...I play jazz, funk and pop music and this drum has a distinct sound for every style. Sounds great tuned up AND tuned low. The wood/metal hoops are an awesome feature and make the drum have the pop and ring of a metal snare, but also the warmth and control of a wooden snare. Rim clicks sound BEAUTIFUL on this drum; the combination of the metal and wood hoops give it a really nice, distinct "click". Sounds great with brushes too. I'm curious to hear what this drum would sound like with an Evans HD Dry head because the drum does ring a little bit...but a moon gel fixes it right up! This is a beautiful drum and I would recommend it to anyone!
