Snare of the day

Gretsch 4160 Chrome over Brass

Today’s featured snare drum is a late 1960’s Gretsch 4160. This drum offers a 14 x 5″ Chrome over brass shell with die cast hoops. All hardware on this drum is original – internal muffler, tension rods, lightening snare strainer.


The shell is in great shape for its age, and features the clever Gretsch drum key holder (with original key) within the shell. Late 1960’s Round Badge era, this drum tunes up easily with Aquarian American Vintage heads and Puresound wires. Some pitting to the hoops but overall a great example of this classic snare drum for That Great Gretsch Sound.
