Overview

The concept of the Renown redesign was to give the series fresh visual appeal and enhance sonic performance, while preserving its classic Gretsch vibe and spirit. The Renown has been revered for its rock-solid craftsmanship and excellent sonic performance.

Gretsch still uses the proven and unique Renown formula that combines North American Rock Maple with a slightly softer maple species. Each drum is expertly completed with smooth 30 degree bearing edges and Gretsch's exclusive Silver Sealer interior finish.

Heavy-duty Gretsch die-cast hoops are fitted to all tom and snare shells and classic Gretsch lugs adorn each drum. This Gretsch-engineered shell/hoop combination produces explosive attack and power that is rich with warm, low-end timbre. The updated round, two-toned badge features gleaming silver artwork embossed over a black nickel background.

Snare, cymbals and hardware sold separately.

    Comments about Gretsch Drums Renown Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

    This set is the greatest I've owned. I've played Pearl, Tama, Ludwig, Yamaha (birch and oak), DW, and this beats them all. Truly a drum which is inspirational and speaks musically. It's not just a drum, it's an instrument. The kick is full and boomy with the right amount of attack, toms are "wide" sounding and big without being in the way of the other instruments. Attack is enhanced, as it's brightened just enough by the silver sealer interior. Versatile for rock, pop, swing, jazz...it's all in the 30-degree bearing edge and design. Construction is also very well done with the new tom mount system, attaching to the lugs and still letting the shell vibrate freely. I've also recorded with it at home, and it has come across better than any of the aforementioned brands.

    Enough of my review. I really recommend playing one. You'd be glad you did.

        Comments about Gretsch Drums Renown Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

        The Renown Maple series is top notch. The thin maple shells, 30 degree bearing edges, cast hoops, suspension mount system and proprietary interior shell treatment (Silver Sealer) all conspire to deliver "That great Gretsch sound". These drums sound TREMENDOUS regardless of head selection. I'm running Remo Vintage Emperors for batters on all the toms with single ply clears for resos. Indoors or outdoors through a good P.A., either way they sound GREAT ! All the usual flattering terms people use to describe a drum sound apply to these : Fat, warm, huge, beefy, rich. The tom clamps are high quality. You can feel how creamy smooth they are every time you use them. The only drums I might prefer to these would be at the top of the spectrum (USA Custom). I unequivocally give them five stars. Very satisfied.
