Taylor Hawkins is a great drummer. No doubts there...... after all if you're going to be the guy Dave Grohl trusts to take his usual seat behind a kit you have to be top notch. This skill and dedication feeds through into his drum designs which are all unique and custom designed to give you a great piece for your kit. With a FREE signature LP Cowbell for a limited time!
So what makes this model special? Well.... lets start with the black nickel over steel. This gives the drum a bright, powerful resonance that a wooden snare wont give you. If you play hard rock with solid driving beats this is the snare you need at the heart of your kit.
The next step is the lugs, ten full body pieces which give you great control over your tension. Finish this off with a profssional grade set of hoops and accesories and slap on a signature badge, the sign of a quality piece, and this is one sweet peice of drum gear you need to check out.
Here's what Gretsch say:
Gretsch Signature Snare Drums reflect the spirit of the drummer after whom they are named. Each snare is designed to capture and express each artist's unique playing style, from perfectly placed backbeats to intricate sticking patterns.
The Gretsch Drums' Taylor Hawkins Siguature snare drum bears his name and delivers the performance that Taylor demands. The snare features a 14 x 6-1/2" steel shell that is plated in gleaming black nickel. The hardware offers stout 2.3mm triple-flanged hoops, 10 lugs and adjustable throw-off are finished in triple-chrome plating. Twenty-strand snare wires, Remo Emperor X drumheads and signature Taylor Hawkins badge with "The Hawk" symbol complete Taylor's snare.
