Punchy, full-bodied tones from a 6.5”x 14” steel shell, designed in conjunction with Taylor Hawkins

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.”
