A vibrant snare drum with a polished copper shell.

The Gretsch C2 snare drum offers a modern take on the classic alloy snare. At its core is a 2 mm polished copper shell that delivers a meaty low end, tight and focused midrange, and higher frequencies that balance copper's naturally darker tone.

2 mm Polished Copper Shell Provides a Distinctive Tone

The Gretsch C2 snare drum's 2 mm polished copper shell gives it a tone like no other. Copper produces a vibrant, resonant sound with rich lows, focused mids and balanced highs. Its thinner 2 mm depth further enhances resonance and sensitivity. The copper shell's distinctive tone cuts through any mix, allowing your backbeat to shine through.

Premium Die-Cast Hoops and Lightning Throw-off for Adjustability and Durability

The Gretsch C2 snare drum features premium 4 mm die-cast hoops and a Lightning throw-off for maximum durability and adjustability. The die-cast hoops provide rigid rimshots and consistent tuning, while the Lightning throw-off allows for quick head changes so you can explore different sounds. A "Snap-In" key holder gives you quick access to your drum key for on-the-fly tuning adjustments.

Versatile and Expressive

With its vibrant 2 mm copper shell, premium hardware and Permatone drum heads by Remo, the Gretsch C2 snare drum is an incredibly expressive and versatile snare. It delivers a wide range of tones from fat and punchy to tight and articulate. The copper shell's focused tone also allows the C2 snare drum to cut through any mix, making it ideal for both live and studio use.
