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 Drums is proudly celebrating its 130th Anniversary with a series of Limited Edition American-made drum sets and snare drums. These drums will be released throughout the year and each will include a specially designed 130th Anniversary interior shell label and a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity. 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
