GRETSCH COLLABORATES WITH MARK SCHULMAN ON 2011 SIGNATURE SNARES
January 19, 2011
Gretsch has teamed up with endorsee, Mark Schulman to launch two new Full Range snare drums for 2011. Available in 6x12 (6 lug) and 6x13 (8 lug), these signature snare drums are designed to appeal to the working drummer. Mark challenged Gretsch to create a snare that could cut through dense live performance mixes and still retaining their versatility. In return, Gretsch presented Schulman with a 9-ply, 8.6mm all-maple shell with 45-degree bearing edges, die cast hoops, 42-strand snare wires, Silver Sealer interior and Evans drum heads. A Double stripe Bubinga inlay adds a distinctive look and is accompanied by a badge featuring Mark’s signature. Mark’s versatility as a drummer has enabled him to create a wide range of performing credentials. Among his highlights are tours and/or recordings with Cher, P!NK, Velvet Revolver, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, Foreigner, Billy Idol and Stevie Nicks.

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.
