Hewn from the roots of Gretsch with classic style, new innovations and retro tones.
Commemorating the inexorable link between Gretsch and Brooklyn, New York from foundation, the Gretsch Brooklyn Series Shell Pack takes you back to the purity of hand craftsmanship while taking percussion forward. Built in the US by a team of veteran drum builders, Gretsch Brooklyn Series shells are constructed of 6-ply North American maple and poplar (snare/bass shells are .31", toms are .22" thick) with the proprietary Gretsch 30-degree bearing edge and finished with the interior Silver Sealer. Each delivers a distinct, open attack while retaining the ability to create a warm ambiance for down-tempo numbers.
The hardware for the Gretsch Brooklyn is reminiscent of the 1950s, generously-designed and durable. The classic "302" hoops, fitted on both the batter and resonant sides, are 3mm and double-flanged for full accents and rimshots. All other drum hardware components - lugs, claws, brackets, spurs, etc - are the same as used on the Gretsch USA Custom series.
A return to a memorable era for Gretsch Drums is also signified by a return to the Brooklyn Round Badge.
Cymbals and hardware not included.
