Product Description

Today's working drummers need a kit that can do it all - and do it well. The newly designed 2016 Gretsch Renown is one of the most versatile drum sets ever made. Now, with one drum set, you can play with the sensitivity and touch to handle the smoothest grooves of the 1950s; the attack and projection required to drive the most powerful compositions of the '60s and '70s; and the clarity and vibrance needed to faithfully reproduce the clean studio sounds of the '80s, '90s and beyond.

Renown still features the classic 7-ply Gretsch formula maple shells, with 30-degree bearing edges and exclusive Silver Sealer interiors. But this Renown comes with a new twist with the addition of the Gretsch's player-friendly 302 hoop-the same hoop used on Gretsch's Brooklyn and Broadkaster series drums. Gretsch 302 hoops produce the desirable focused sound like that of a die cast hoop, but are lighter in weight and less rigid, allowing the drum to better breath and achieve maximum resonance. The 2016 Renown delivers the traditional Gretsch sound with an incredible open, harmonic tone that supples the versatility needed to meet the demands of the hardest working drummers.

This drum includes the GTS Suspension Mount.  The tom arm is sold separately.
