What is Purpleheart wood?

Native to the tropical forests of Central and South America, this wood is a premium. A hard and heavy wood, drum shells are able to sing with a distinctly unique and ear-grabbing tone. Not forgoing its stunning visual impact, Purpleheart wood is highly durable - great on drum shells for exploring a variety of tunings confidently. With other brands like DW exploring the tonal qualities of this wood, expect to hear a lot more about this musical newbie.


Featuring sturdy and time-tested Gretsch hardware, tone is never lacking. 4mm die-cast hoops provide a focused and moderate-sustain that holds the head flush with the dual 45-degree bearing edges. It sings. These bearing edges enhance the attack of a strike and also enable more sensitivity at lower dynamics. A Gretsch Lightning throw-off and 20-strand snare wire enable quick and effortless tonal changes silently - ideal for recordings and live situations alike.

Proudly made in South Carolina, this drum passes rigorous and tested methods to examine its suitability to be a Gretsch Drum.
