1960s Gretsch donor shell. We've re-vamped this drum into a modern day killer beast. We re-cut the baring edges with our signature outer round over for a lovely warm full body crack. Complimented with single flanged hoops for an open sound with lots of musical overtones. Also we have outfitted the shell with brand new lugs and snare strainer. This drum has the vintage sound coupled with the ease of a modern snare drum. Hence the name vintage soul!
