New Gretsch Colours for 2024
Rosewood Twilight Gloss Lacquer, Classic Sunburst and Purple Marine Pearl
(4th January 2024 – Ridgeland, South Carolina) – Gretsch Drums is delighted to introduce three new finishes for its flagship USA Custom and Broadkaster kits made in the South Carolina factory: Rosewood Twilight Gloss Lacquer, Classic Sunburst, and Purple Marine Pearl, made famous by Nic Collins.
The nitro-cellulose glass lacquer finish of the Rosewood Twilight dark fade makes this rich deep colour feel warm and sumptuous. 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. Liaising with the factory he agreed on the shade of purple and Purple Marine Pearl was born, a captivating, opulent, and decadent new Gretsch Nitron finish.
The shell interiors of all the new finishes are completed with the classic Gretsch Silver Sealer and most importantly all have ‘That Great Gretsch Sound’!
