Gretsch Drums

Three New Colors

Gretsch Drums has introduced three new finishes for its flagship USA Custom and Broadkaster kits made at its South Carolina factory: rosewood twilight gloss lacquer, classic sunburst and purple marine pearl. The nitro-cellulose glass lacquer finish of the rosewood twilight dark fade makes this rich deep color feel warm. The vibrant crimsons bleed into darkening chocolatey burgundies giving the kit a glow and radiance. The timeless classic sunburst is a flash of vivid golden sunshine as it fades at sunset through muted oranges into earth browns. The hand-rubbed stain shows off wood grain to generate a vintage impression which is both striking and eye-catching. The purple marine pearl was developed following a specific request from Nic Collins. Collins asked Gretsch to build a kit for a tour with Mike & The Mechanics with the exact look of black marine pearl, only in purple. The shell interiors of all the new finishes are completed with the Gretsch Silver Sealer.
