Discover A Magical Warm Tone And Sustain With The Gretsch USA Custom 8" x 14" Snare Drum In Savannah Sunset Gloss
Gretsch USA Custom drums are exactly that - Custom. Over 75 drums sizes are available and over 60 finishes are offered. Combine that with a myriad of hardware options and you can tailor nearly every aspect of the drum set to suit your tastes. The one thing that you can't change is the sound - It is unmistakably a Gretsch. When you hear a Gretsch Kit live or on a recording the unique combination of warmth, tone, and sustain is a dead giveaway. You aren't buying a Custom Drum Set, You're buying a Gretsch!
Gretsch USA formula 6-ply maple shell is the cornerstone of "That Great Gretsch Sound" All shells are straight-sided, with hand-cut and hand-sanded 30-degree bearing edges and Gretsch Silver Sealer interior.
Gretsch die-cast hoops produce a full, focused tone that is easy to tune and stay in tune. Die-cast hoops have been included as standard on all toms and snare drums since the mid-1950s.
Gretsch lacquered drums are finished with Nitrocellulose gloss or satin lacquer. Nitrocellulose is known for its high luster content and possesses a unique attribute that allows the wood to naturally age over time. Nitron wrap finishes are the highest grade in the industry.
Gretsch Permatone by Remo USA heads come standard on all Gretsch USA drums. Toms come standard with coated single-ply batter with clear single-ply resonant heads. BD's come standard with clear Powerstroke batter and coated single-ply resonant heads.
