Gretsch Swamp Dawg 14 x 8 inch Snare drum Mahogany Shell
Gretsch Swamp Dawg Mahogany 14x8" Snare drum
Gretsch Drums is proud to announce the release of the new Swamp Dawg snare drum. The Swamp Dawg uses a deep 8x 14 six-ply mahogany shell with eight tube lugs, 2.3mm chrome triple-flange hoops and 42-strand snare wire.
When the Swamp Dawg is tuned low, the sound has a throaty, low-fi timbre, reminiscent of historic recordings from the seventies said Joe Mazza Product Manager for Gretsch Snare Drums. At mid- and higher tunings, this snare cuts with saturating attack and full body.
Gold Series drums use high-grade materials consisting of b
outique-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.
