Legendary Gretsch Artist Vinnie Colaiuta was determined to find a primary snare drum with the versatility to meet his needs both on stage and in-studio. Working closely with the craftsmen at the Gretsch USA Factory in Ridgeland, South Carolina, they produced the incredible signature snares with all of the sonic characteristics that Vinnie had been looking for.
Vinnie’s primary snare, the 5" × 14", has extensive dynamic range with incredible body and remarkable sensitivity. The drum is finished in a distinctive Cobalt Blue to compliment the Gretsch USA Custom kit used on the Sting/Peter Gabriel “Rock, Paper, Scissors” World Tour.
This drum features Gretsch USA’s 6-ply North American Maple Gum Shells with Silver Sealer interiors, 4mm die cast hoops and Vinnie Colaiuta Signature Gretsch Badges.
