Gretsch Hammered Antique Copper
 
Well, I just got myself a Father's Day gift this Saturday. Well, two. First, I saw the Stones at the Boston Garden on Friday. Great show and all I can say is "Charlie Watts rules!" Like his left hand is made of gold or driven by fairies.

And the indulgence continued the next day.

Nice! I might have to try a copper snare someday!

That is a great looking snare! I agree with you about Charlie Watts, he is one of the great rock drummers.

I've had my eye on Gretsch for a while. And I tried about 7 different snares; 4 of them were Gretsch. One was a Matt Chamberlain aluminum snare (Yamaha?), really nice sound and projection. Another was a stainless steel beast, heavier than my pipe band snare (I forget the make) and boy it was loud (but had a pure sound). And one was by Taye, 6.5" deep wood snare- beautiful, sweet sound and a big range. After trying it out back and forth on a jazz kit against the copper Gretsch, it was a toss-up.

Looks were a big factor in my final decision- what it would look like with my Constantinople ride and near future Gretsch set.

And the image of Charlie smiling...

...Oh yeah- And I got it at my local store, Drum Shop of the North Shore, in Beverly, MA!
