My new silver glass glitter Gretsch USA Custom snare drum arrived today. It is 14" x 5" with tone control, key holder, and 42 strand snare wires. 88166

Don't you love how new drums smell like you're in a wood shop?

I changed out the batter head for a Remo Vintage Ambassador before I left the shop. I got a big wiff of "Silver Sealer" when I removed the head. :D

I'm looking forward to doing an A-B comparison between it and the snare drum that is part of my 1960s Gretsch round badge kit. I'm tied up for a few days, but I'll report back.

Congrats! I love new snare day.

For whatever reason there are almost no videos of that snare in a 5" depth on Youtube. Hint hint. :D

It seems like 5.5" and 6.5" are much more common.

I've never done a youtube video, but I'll try it.

I've had a crazy weekend away from music, the new snare is still in it's case from when I got home with it. I have not even carried it down to my rehearsal room yet. I have ten hour shifts Today through Wednesday and Thursday is going to be all about Halloween at our house. Next Friday I should be able to give it a full workout.
