I use it for 20 years! I bought used, it is a model 10 U.S. ties probably the late 70's or early 80.
It is blown, powerful, brilliant and diabolical precision, especially tense background: that's how I prefer it with good old white ambassador, she then shows very original, full of subtlety as the strength and the location of the strike, the angle rods etc: a truly unique sound (that great Gretsch sound !)!!! No fault but some limitations: its a very dry and cold enough, the opposite of wooden boxes and does not accommodate, for example, with the use of brushes.
As for the look, I personally find sumptuous simplicity, with a great and successful trip, circles and cast the locket that Gretsch dream ... but it is true that my old tie rods 10 is much more beautiful than the 8 tie today ...
I tried before various metal snare drums and I was more attracted by LUDWIG Supraphonic more "soft" and versatile, easier to play and rules, but with less personality: is the price of the occasion At the time, which decided the final purchase (I did for 700francs a bargain!)
I am confident to have found a cheap gem, full of character, which I would now be impossible to separate myself. Only the purchase of a second case (wood) is possible.
