Designed by the legendary Vinnie Colaiuta.

Legendary Gretsch Artist Vinnie Colaiuta was determined to find primary and secondary snare drums with the versatility to meet his needs both on stage and in the studio. Working closely with the craftsmen at the Gretsch USA Factory in Ridgeland, South Carolina, they produced two incredible signature snares with all of the sonic characteristics that Vinnie had been looking for. Vinnie’s primary snare, the 14x5", has extensive dynamic range with incredible body and remarkable sensitivity.

The 12x4" auxiliary snare is ultraloud when laid into with a rimshot. Ultra sharp, piercing, very dry sound and a short sustain—a great side snare drum with a ton of crack when hit on a rimshot. The drums are finished in a distinctive Cobalt Blue to compliment the Gretsch USA Custom kit used on the Sting/Peter Gabriel "Rock, Paper, Scissors" World Tour.

Both drums feature Gretsch USA’s 6-ply North American maple gum shells with Silver Sealer interiors, four mm die-cast hoops and Vinnie Colaiuta Signature Gretsch badges.


  • 14x5" snare is perfect as a versatile main snare
  • 12x4" snare makes an excellent auxiliary/side snare
  • 6-ply North American maple gum shells with Silver Sealer interiors
