    Comments about Gretsch Drums Energy VB 5-Piece Drum Set with Zildjian Cymbals:

    I bought this kit in the grey finish about 2 years ago, after a 40 year absence from drums (high school). I was asked to get back into the drums to accompany our local Christian biker church praise band. Since these folks expect to hear rockin' style music I needed something that would do that, without breaking the bank. My purchase was long enough ago that it came with Sabian cymbals. I've since replaced those with Zildjian S's. Lately I replaced the heads with Remo Emperor X for snare, Remo Clear Pinstripes for the toms, and Remo Powerstroke for the bass. They really make the kit sound like a more expensive kit. I have to admit that I liked and enjoyed the drum kit the way it came. I enjoy the compliments from folks, but the real joy is getting to introduce the pre-teen kids to the drums! Gotta encourage the next generation! Not only do I enjoy these drums for their sound and playability, but also for what they have done for my sanity! And yes, I have a more expensive Gretsch set at home (Renown, but that's another story!)

      Comments about Gretsch Drums Energy VB 5-Piece Drum Set with Zildjian Cymbals:

      Like the suspension toms. Helps give the kicker more sound it seems. Was recommended by pro drummer and I believe it is the best full ( cymbals and hardware ) kit for under 1,000$.
