Signature snare of British drummer Ash Soan.

Ash Soan is one of today’s most in-demand drummers and Gretsch was excited to create the Ash Soan signature snare drum together. Ash’s super eclectic work calls for a snare of unparalleled versatility and that is precisely what this is. Working at his historic Windmill Recording Studio there are a variety of sonic goals and this unique drum provides everything he needs to meet the needs of his clients. This 12” Purpleheart snare drum has already been heard on several recordings and Instagram videos, and many drummers have asked him about it. This breakthrough drum starts with a 9-ply 12x7” Purpleheart shell finished in clear gloss lacquer. Its double 45-degree bearing edges significantly increase the attack, creating an ultra-cutting crack. Additional features based on Ash’s specs include 4mm die cast hoops and classic Lightning throw-off. Each snare has an inside identification label specifying the year of production and each is signed by Ash himself.
