Gretsch USA Custom 5x14 in. snare drums have been a significant part of “That Great Gretsch Sound” for over 65 years. At the heart of each drum is the legendary 6-ply Gretsch-formula maple/gum shell with its expertly formed 30-degree bearing edge, the exclusive "Silver Sealer” interior finish and rugged die cast hoops.

What is the result when adding these key components into one of the most time tested snare drums in the world? You get beauty, sensitivity, power, stability, and clarity all wrapped into one snare drum. For this particular model Gretsch uses its classy and timeless Champagne Sparkle Nitron finish adding a vintage and retro touch to this stylistic and legendary instrument.
