The Gretsch Gold Series makes your backbeat worth its weight.
Gold Series drums use high-grade materials consisting of boutique-level craftsmanship and appointments. Gold Series snares are designed for the discerning player that is looking to add a new, unique sound to their drum kit.
Dubbed the "Swamp Dawg", the Gretsch 8-Tube Snare is a multi-faceted drum and a versatile addition to the Gretsch product line. The tuning range is expanded due to the deep 14 x 8" mahogany shell that, when tuned low, creates an open "swampy", dark, throaty, "lo-fi" timbre reminiscent of historic recordings from the '70s.
