One of A Kind USA Custom Snares


On Wednesday, January 22, Gretsch Round Badge dealers (ultimate store destinations for Gretsch Drum enthusiasts) attended a private NAMM preview of the Gretsch Drum booth. Round Badge dealers were granted the first opportunity to purchase one of 27 custom made snare drums produced exclusively for the 2014 NAMM show.

Produced in the USA by the Gretsch Custom shop in Ridgeland (in association with the Fender Guitar Custom shop and Thorn Custom Inlay) these snare drums range in size, material and design. Snares include exotic single-ply wood shells, custom inlay made from red coral, spiny oyster, onyx, turquoise and Mother of Pearls and Relic snare drums. Truly unique. Here is the complete listing of each drum and the associated Round Badge dealer where it can be purchased.
