August 26, 2018:
I am proud to announce that we will be launching a Nashville Special drum set built for us by the wonderful folks at DW/Gretsch. The Nashville Special sets will be available in our exclusive Mardi Gras wrap and will consist of 9x13, 16x16, 14x24 with a 6.5x14 solid shell snare drum. For those of you who are not familiar with Mardi Gras, this was a wrap finish used in the 50s and 60s by such great American brands as Rogers, Slingerland and Leedy. The finish has a black background with colorful confetti-like pattering. These are only available through our shop and will be built as follows:
DW Contemorary Classic Series: This is John Good's incredible mahogany/poplar design for that timeless vintage sound. Snare drum will be a DW snare with a Craviotto solid maple shell.
Gretsch USA Custom Series: The classic Gretsch USA Custom 6 ply maple/gumwood shell. Snare drum will be a Gretsch USA snare with a Craviotto solid maple shell.
You will be able to see these sets at our Fork's Drum Closet Grand Opening at our new location at 308 Chestnut Street, Nashville, on Sept 27th!
Here are two shots of a Gretsch tom and a DW tom that were done in this finish!
