BLACK SPARKLE LACQUER ADDED TO NEW CLASSIC FINISH OFFERING
January 19, 2011
Gretsch expands its New Classic finish offering with eye-catching Black Sparkle Lacquer for 2011. The finish process begins by applying metallic black flakes evenly to the shells by a systematic, hand-sprayed application. After the flakes are applied, the shell then receives multiple coats of clear lacquer, with hand sanding between each coat. Following intensive buffing, the high-gloss luster finish is revealed. Black Sparkle Lacquer is available in three New Classic configurations, individual snare drums and individual add-on drums.
New Classic series features: - Proportionate Gretsch-formula maple shells that increase in thickness along with shell diameters - Vintage styled tube lugs - Low mass “ITS” integrated tom suspension system and 9025 hinged tom and floor tom leg brackets
The epitome and legend of "That Great Gretsch Sound." The USA Custom series is hand-crafted every step of the way in our Ridgeland, SC factory by highly experienced and skilled drumsmiths. Our legendary Gretsch formula 6-ply shell is the cornerstone of our legendary sound. Shells are completed with 30-degree bearing edges, Silver Sealer, die-cast hoops and custom finishes - ingredients all combined to make a sound long recognized for its classic clear timbre, balanced tone and explosive projection. Custom design your Gretsch dream kit "a la cart" by choosing your desired drum sizes, colors and hardware options. The Gretsch legend continues.
The NEW Gretsch USA Custom Order Guide will explain the many options that are available to help you design a drum set that matches your individual voice as a drummer.
Carefully developed to produce tones that explode a balanced amount of warm low end frequencies
The Catalina Maple series starts with the Gretsch maple formula shell. We carefully developed the maple shell specification to produce tones that explode with attack and volume and project a balanced amount of warm, low-end frequencies. All Catalina Maple shells are 7-ply, 7.2mm.
The Catalina Maples are available in two configurations - a 6-piece shell pack set and a 5-piece shell pack set. Add-on drums are also available to allow for further drum set expansion.
