Gretsch Drums introduces four new practice pads modeled after the revered “Round Badge”, a mainstay on Gretsch drums for the better part of four decades of its 130-year history. The pads feature a silica-gel surface with a dense wood base, and include a pad mount insert that conveniently fits any standard practice pad stand or cymbal stand. A non-skid foam rubber backing allows the player to use the pad securely on a flat surface. The Gretsch Round Badge Practice Pad comes in two sizes: 12” (MSRP $55.99), and 6” (MSRP $35.99), and is available in colors orange on black or gray on black.
“Practice pads have long been a proven tool for drummers to improve their technique,” said John Palmer, Director of Product for Gretsch Drums. “These new Gretsch practice pads use a classic Gretsch Round Badge graphic that fits the round pad base perfectly. It’s a cool and unique look, and one we think will appeal to Gretsch fans.”
The Gretsch Round Badge Practice Pad is available at Gretsch Drums retailers throughout the United States. For more information, or to find a local Gretsch Drums retailer, visit GretschDrums.com.
Gretsch Drums is proudly celebrating its 130th Anniversary with a series of Limited Edition American-made drum sets and snare drums.

The labels and certificates will be numbered to indicate the production sequence of each drum.Learn More!
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.Read More
