Gretsch Drums


Like all Gretsch snares, the Black Nickel Over Steel snare is a workhorse; a drum that just works no matter the room or the acoustics. The 1.2 mm, 14x6.5" Black Nickel Plated shell is balanced, full and responsive to any style. Built for power out of the box, Gretsch also includes a Coated Remo batter head, 2.3 mm steel hoops, classic lugs, and 20-strand snares—all at a price that makes it easy to add this drum to any snare arsenal.
