Gretsch S1-0814 Swamp Dawg Mahogany Snare 14x8in, Natural Satin
Gretsch Gold Series Swamp Dawg 14x8in Mahogany Snare, Natural Satin
Dubbed the "Swamp Dawg," this multi-faceted drum is a versatile addition to the Gretsch Gold series. Tuning ranges are expanded due to the deep 14x8in mahogany shell that, when tuned low, creates a "swampy", dark, throaty, "low-fi" timbre reminiscent of historic recordings from the seventies.
At mid and higher tunings, the Swamp Dawg cuts with saturating attack and full body. The components and specifications of the drum were carefully designed to achieve a broad palette of sounds. The 6-ply mahogany shell, 8 tube lugs and triple flange hoops let the drum open up and breath while the 42-strand snare wires and double-ply, coated Remo Emperor batter head give the drum extra bite and playability.
