Gretsch Vinnie Colaiuta Snare Drum

Easily having earned his legendary status, it is no surprise to see another Vinnie Colaiuta signature Snare Drum from his current preferred drum company of endorsement. Historically, we have only ever seen one Vinnie Colaiuta signature Snare Drum before, made when he was with Yamaha on a limited run. Now with Gretsch, Vinnie’s put his name to a new drum that reflects his current taste in Snare Drum design.

Working closely with the craftsmen at the Gretsch USA Factory in Ridgeland, South Carolina, Vinnie helped create a Snare Drum with all of the following characteristics that he wanted on a drum bearing his signature…

  • 14” x 5” 6-ply Gretsch Formula/Maple/Gum Shell
  • Double 45 degree bearing edge
  • Gretsch Lightning Throw-off
  • 8 Lugs
  • Die-Cast Hoops
  • Cobalt Blue Lacquer finish
  • Silver-Sealer interior finish
  • Vinnie’s signature badge

The Vinnie Colaiuta Snare Drum won’t make you play like Vinnie, but it will give you a brief insight into the mind of a true, one-off genius who emerged from the cream of the worlds drummers at the latter part of the 20th century. Play this drum, and tap into the greatness
