Gretsch Drums is pleased to announce the release of a new signature snare drum, designed in collaboration with Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. With a 6.5”x 14” black nickel-plated steel shell, the Taylor Hawkins snare drum features 10 lugs, an adjustable chrome-plated throw-off, 2.3 mm triple-flanged hoops, Remo® Coated Emperor X™ batter head and 20-strand snare wire. Each drum sports a special Taylor Hawkins signature badge complete with “The Hawk” symbol and Taylor’s signature.
The Gretsch Taylor Hawkins Signature Series snare drum (MSRP: $385.99) is available now from Authorized Gretsch Drums Retailers.
“Taylor wanted a drum that was built to high Gretsch standards but was also attainable by young drummers,” said Joe Mazza, Product Manager for Gretsch Drums. “The end result is a powerful snare drum with a versatile, unique voice.”
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
