GRETSCH® INTRODUCES STAVE SNARE DRUMS IN OAK AND CHERRY
January 24, 2013
Gretsch Drums announces the introduction of two new stave snare drums. Made with thirty vertical interlocking staves, as opposed to the traditional method of shell ply lamination, the new Gretsch Stave snare drums feature a thick 7/8” shell available in oak and cherry. Each snare drum is supplied with 3mm chrome triple-flange hoops and a Remo® Coated Ambassador® batter head.
Gretsch Stave snare drums (MSRP: $920.99) feature a Satin Natural finish to enhance the visual characteristics of the wood, and a 45-degree bearing edge on the 6 ½”x 14” shell.
“Oak and cherry stave shells each produce a unique sound,” said Joe Mazza, Product Manager for Gretsch Snare Drums. “Oak has a dry sound with less overtones while cherry has a full-bodied sound that resonates.”
Join the Club
For years, Gretsch’s Catalina Club has been the go-to drum set for versatility and reliable tone.
New from Gretsch® Drums, the Marquee series delivers explosive,
open tones, professional features and rock solid performance at
an accessible price. Marquee shells combine 7-ply North American
maple with a slight softer maple species that are cut with
classic Gretsch 30-degree bearing edges and fit with 2.3mm
triple flanged hoops.
