Musicians often talk about their roots, where they came from and how they began their own musical journeys. Sometimes our best work comes from revisiting what made our music so special in the first place. Gretsch gets your need to simplify and reflect, which is why they've created their Roots Series. This exciting new family of instruments features authentic Gretsch designs that encompass over a century of production expertise and experience. If you're ready to head back to a time before rock and roll ruled the world, spend some time getting to know the Gretsch Roots Series - there's definitely an instrument here to suit your musical style.
Speaking of your style, what do you play? The Gretsch Roots Series includes mandolins, resonator guitars, banjos, ukuleles and much more, and narrowing down your choices is as simple as taking your own needs and preferences into consideration. For example, if you like the unique look and bluesy sound of a resonator guitar, check out the G9201 Honeydipper Metal Round Neck Resonator. Boasting an Ampli-Sonic resonator cone that was hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99-percent pure aluminum, the G9201's power and projection will impress any fan of country, Delta blues or ragtime.
Now for those who love the sweet, twangy sound of the banjo, take a closer look at the Root Series G9450 Dixie 5-String. This highly-affordable banjo is packed with traditional features that evoke the rich tone of days gone by. Offering outstanding performance, sound and value, this top-tapping, mahogany-rimmed banjo is suited to musicians ranging from seasoned strummers straight through to first time pickers.
When you get right down to it, the Gretsch Roots Series is perfect for any musician who wants to get back to the basics. Gretsch has been designing instruments since 1883, and while they're always focused on the future, they never forget the past, and it's for this reason why they've grown to become one of the worlds most respected and well-known manufacturers.
