To celebrate its 125th anniversary, The Gretsch Company, one of the world’s most well-known drum and guitar manufacturers, is kicking off the Next Gretsch Greats Unsigned Artist Competition, an online competition to identify the world’s hottest unsigned bands. The competition entry period will begin May 1 and end May 31, 2008.
Celebrating the 125th Anniversary of Gretsch® drum-making excellence, Guitar Center, the world’s largest musical instrument and professional audio retailer, is proud to team up with Gretsch Musical Instruments to announce the Gretsch Vintage USA Maple Limited Edition Snare Drum. The drums were hand selected from 300 original Vintage USA Jasper shells recently found in an amazing discovery at the Gretsch factory in Ridgeland, South Carolina, and a mere 125 have been produced and made available worldwide. Offering unsurpassed, legendary tone, these drums are a dream for collectors and players alike.
Gretsch has made only 125 of these snares (which will be going for $599) and they will each be signed by Fred Gretsch himself.
The Gretsch Company, one of the world’s most well-known drum and guitar manufacturers, will celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2008. Throughout the year, Gretsch will celebrate by introducing new lines of limited edition anniversary drums, guitars, and other Gretsch products; conducting an online search for the world’s best unsigned bands; and hosting a major concert event in New York City featuring an illustrious lineup of “Gretsch Greats.”
