Gretsch 4160G

The gold plating of all components was done in house, as Gretsch already had experience of gold plating guitar parts, as well as their revered 1950’s Cadillac Green and 24 carat gold ‘Birdland’ set.
Gretsch ran two versions of this snare – the first was the earlier 8 lug Round Badge version, updated to the ‘Stop Sign’ badge around 1970. This was replaced with a 10 lug version in 1972 that was offered until 1974. With a price tag of over double the standard Chrome over Brass, the 4160G at $250 (or the equivalent of $1900/£1400 today) meant that it had a low production turnover. The snare was only offered in one size 14×5″.
