Check out this previous Drummer’s Review special of a Gretsch Full Range Bell Brass Snare Drum, Gretsch will be at The UK Drum Show 2021 25th and 26th September!


  • 14″ x 6.5″, 3mm thick Bell Brass shell,
  • 30˚ bearing edges,
  • die cast hoops,
  • PureSound snare wires,
  • Remo Controlled Sound X batter head over Evans snare side 300 resonant,
  • 9kg in weight.

Although this exact snare is a discontinued model, Gretsch do offer a modern version, about which they say…“Bell brass snare drums are sought after for their smooth, pure timbre and controlled overtones, not to mention their powerful cut. The Gretsch 3.0mm cast bell brass shell shares the warm characteristics of wood with the powerful cut of a metal drum.”
