gretsch usa vs brooklyn snare (brass)


Well-known member
OK I've been spending time on reverb trying to figure out what snare to get. My dilemma is that I cant tell the difference (if any) between a COB USA and Brooklyn Gretsch snare, other than the badge and about 50 - 100 USD markup for a USA, they look identical. They both look like they have 10 lugs, welded shell, 302 hoops, 42 wire snare, same factory heads, same throw off and butt plate... help please.
