      Gretsch Drums

      A powerful, oversized snare with dark, retro tones and an open range.

      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.


      • 6-Ply mahogany shell
      • Chrome hardware with 8 tube lugs
      • Satin natural finish
      • 2.3mm triple flanged hoops
      • Fully adjustable side pull throw-off with fixed butt plate

      Tone from the murky dark of the swamp. Order today.

        Comments about Gretsch Drums Swamp Dawg 8-Tube Snare Drum:

        Great drum, huge tuning range, it's like Steve Gadd on 'Aja' meets Darren King on 'Odd Soul' with some moonshine and cigarette smoke rubbed in. Comes with a 42 strand wire and authentic Evans heads (Coated G1 on top, Hazy 300 on bottom and is finished with the Gretsch Silver Sealer. The drum holds its tuning wonderfully and sounds great from top to bottom of the tuning range. As a bonus, the drum is BEAUTIFUL and will turn heads! Highly recommended!
