Aluminum shells are known for their dry, focused attack with minimal overtones. The cast 3mm reinforced shell takes those tonal properties to another level. Shell exteriors have the classic center Gretsch knurling pattern, are not plated and are finished with a light coat of lacquer. Additional features include Lightning throw-off, top and bottom die-cast hoops, 'Snap-In' key holder and 42-Strand snare wire.
Offering a wide array of sonics - the USA Metal series cover all ends of the spectrum. All snares come standard with our Lighting throw off, die cast hoops, center knurl pattern, and our snap-in key holder. Choose from 8 different metals to personalize your sound.
