A solid-shelled, boutique walnut snare handbuilt by Gretsch veterans in the USA.
Gretsch G-5000 Walnut snare drums are USA made in Gretsch's Ridgeland, SC Custom Drum Shop and include 30-degree bearing edges, a Lightning throw-off, die-cast triple-flanged hoops, 20-strand snare wires and Evans USA coated G1 batter head with hazy 300 snare side. The shells are finished in a gloss natural to enhance the wood’s intrinsic beauty.
The Walnut shells are handcrafted and include solid maple reinforcement hoops to ensure true shell roundness. Walnut offers a dark and throaty fundamental timbre, but still projects plenty of attack and tonal presence.
Due to the single-ply shell characteristics and handmade quality, each new G-5000 snare is capable of projecting vibrant, cutting tones that are balanced by an overall warm and complex sound.
