Gretsch Swamp Dawg Mahogany 14" x 8" Snare Drum

Gretsch Drums is proud to announce the release of the new Swamp Dawg snare drum. The Swamp Dawg uses a deep 8�x 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.
