Gretsch / Dixieland 4105 snare / 5 x 14 / 1950s
This 6 lug, round badge "Dixieland" snare in aged white marine pearl is one of the finest we've seen from this era. This is a warm, open, versatile snare drum, capable of that funky, New Orleans jazz/dixieland sound, or, tighten it up to draw out a throaty, woody, Stax or Muscle Shoals sound. Basically, immediately when you begin playing this snare everything you do has more swag.
Die cast hoops, muffler, tight wrap, original drum key built in. Remo Emperor on top with lots of life left, a Remo Ambassador snare side head, and Puresound wires. Has a stamp marked "5180" inside.
