Steve Dropped by the Gretsch Booth to check out the new Gretsch Snares!
I'm Proud to announce the release of six new Gretsch Snare drums made in collaboration with Legendary Drummer, Matt Sorum (Guns n' Roses, The Cult, Velvet Revolver). The themes reflect the artists deep concern for the plants ecological environment. These extremely limited drums are individually hand-burned on maple shells and proudly assembled in the U.S.A. They are available through Gretsch and affiliated distributors. A portion of the proceeds will benefit environmental concerns. Visit GretschDrums.com.
