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.
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
