January 24, 2013



Gretsch Drums is proud to introduce the Retro-Luxe line of snare drums. Featuring a 6 ½”x 14” maple shell with 16 lugs, each Retro-Luxe snare features classic Gretsch styling and appointments. Available in two-tone Pewter-and-Black or two-tone Pewter-and-White, Retro-Luxe drums have an embossed badge and metal banding around the center of the shell. Retro-Luxe snare drums are fitted with 2.3mm triple-flange hoops and 20-strand snare wires.

The Gretsch Retro-Luxe snare drums (MSRP: $385.99) have a 30-degree shell bearing edge and feature a gloss lacquer finish.

“Retro-Luxe snares bring a fresh look to the Gretsch lineup with a modern take on ‘retro’ design elements,” said Joe Mazza, Product Manager for Gretsch Snare Drums. “The maple shell, compatible color combinations and 16-lug configuration provide for a versatile snare that can be used in any setup.”
