GRETSCH® INTRODUCES THE SWAMP DAWG MAHOGANY SNARE DRUM

January 24, 2013



Gretsch Drums is proud to announce the release of the new Swamp Dawg snare drum. The Swamp Dawg uses a deep 8”x 14” six-ply mahogany shell with eight tube lugs, 2.3mm chrome triple-flange hoops and 42-strand snare wire.

“When the Swamp Dawg is tuned low, the sound has a throaty, low-fi timbre, reminiscent of historic recordings from the seventies,” said Joe Mazza Product Manager for Gretsch Snare Drums. “At mid- and higher tunings, this snare cuts with saturating attack and full body.”

The Gretsch Swamp Dawg (MSRP: $615.99) has a Satin Natural finish with a 30-degree shell bearing edge.
