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.”

Gretsch Marquee Series

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.
