This is a "new old stock" set that is still in excellent shape! The kit is outfitted with the vintage style hardware package (spurs, rail mount, vintage diamond brackets, vintage legs), and the snare drum features a Micro Sensitive throwoff and butt plate. The 12" tom's bracket has been installed to the right of the badge, which means the badge does not face outward when set up on the rail mount in a right-handed orientation. (No problem for left-handed players, of course!) This kit was part of a very limited run of drums that Gretsch offered a few years ago, so this is a rare one for sure!
Gretsch USA formula 6-ply maple shell is the cornerstone of "That Great Gretsch Sound." All shells are straight-sided, with hand cut and hand sanded 30-degree bearing edges and Gretsch Silver Sealer interior.
Gretsch die-cast hoops produce a full, focused tone that are easy to tune and stay in tune. Die-cast hoops have been included as standard on all toms and snare drums since the mid 1950s.
Padded die-cast claw hooks provide stable tuning and has classic Gretsch design. The claw hook includes cushioning pad that buffers metal to wood hoop contact and has classic Gretsch design.
Gretsch Permatone by Remo USA heads come standard on all Gretsch USA drums. Toms come standard with coated single-ply batter with clear single-ply resonant heads. Bass drums come standard with Powerstroke batter and coated single-ply resonant heads.
