Gretsch Drums Introduces The USA Custom Ridgeland Snare Drum

today5 July, 2022


Gretsch Drums proudly introduces the USA Custom Ridgeland Snare drum to their celebrated range of snare of drums. At almost half-inch thick and made from a fusion of woods, this new drum has a sound that is warm, powerful and loud!

For nearly 40 years, Gretsch Drums have been hand-crafted in Ridgeland, South Carolina using the finest materials available.  It’s here that a team of dedicated artisans consider every detail to ensure that each drum possesses “That Great Gretsch Sound.” The USA Custom Ridgeland Snare Drum has been developed in the time-honored tradition of Gretsch drums to showcase the dedication and passion of these artisans.

The 0.4” shell, made of maple, gum and poplar, features a hybrid bearing edge that combines the classic Gretsch 30 edge with an old-school Broadkaster-style roundover; the result is a warm, full-bodied tone with plenty of attack. These new snare drums are equipped with sturdy 4mm die-cast counter hoops, the ever-popular Lightning Throw-Off, 20-strand snare wires and Gretsch Permatone drumheads. Custom made, the Ridgeland Snare Drums are available in 5×14 and 6.5×14 sizes and in all Gretsch Nitron, Satin or Gloss Lacquer finishes to perfectly match any drum set.

The Ridgeland, born in the South, made to inspire. For a preview of the Ridgeland snare drum, watch the video below.
