Shane Says

“The Brooklyn Series is my choice in Gretsch Drums! If you want a bit more bottom at the cost of the top end articulation, you've got that modern cocktail of the Great Gretsch Sound. I love the sound and tuning range of these.“

Product Description

Configuration: 22x18, 10x7, 12x8x, 16x14, 14x5.5. Drums only, no other hardware/cymbals included.

The Sound:

Rooted in classic Gretsch design, Brooklyn delivers vintage Gretsch tones that are full, punchy and warm. These classic tones are modified by the 6-ply North American maple/ poplar shells and "302" hoops. Innovative specs drive a new Gretsch tonal characteristic that is slightly more open and ambient. Brooklyn drums sound like classic Gretsch drums, but speak with their own sonic personality.

The Shell:

All Brooklyn drums feature 6-ply North American maple/ poplar shells. Toms are .220" thick and snare and bass drums shells are .310" thick, slightly thicker than standard USA Custom shells. All shells have the proprietary Gretsch 30-degree bearing edge. Shell interiors are finished with classic Gretsch Silver Sealer. Each shell comes with a distinctive Brooklyn internal shell label that contains drum shell model number and serial number.

The Hardware:

Brooklyn toms and snares come fitted on batter and resonant side with the new Gretsch "302" hoop. At 3mm thick and double-flanged, it is reminiscent of hoops used by Gretsch up until the mid 1950's. The 302 hoop has the same height profile as the classic Gretsch die-cast hoop to provide a playing experience that feels the same as traditional Gretsch USA Custom drums. All other drum hardware components - lugs, claws, brackets, spurs, etc - are the same that is used on Gretsch USA Custom.
