Posted by Andy Anderson on 25th August 2009

USA Custom

The USA Custom series is hand-crafted every step of the way in the Ridgeland, SC factory by highly experienced and skilled drumsmiths. Gretsch’s legendary formula 6-ply shell is the cornerstone of the legendary sound. 

Shells are completed with 30-degree bearing edges, Silver Sealer, die-cast hoops and custom finishes – ingredients all combined to make a sound long recognized for its classic clear timbre, balanced tone and explosive projection. Custom design your Gretsch dream kit "a la cart" by choosing your desired drum sizes, colours and hardware options. The Gretsch legend continues.

Check out the new Catalina Series.

The Catalina Maple

The Gretsch Catalina Maple series has been designed for the player who is looking for quality features without the high price. 

With the warm tone of the thin maple shells, UV gloss finishes, and pro tom holders, the Catalina Maple offers the looks and features of a pro kit without breaking your bank.

The Catalina Ash

The Gretsch Catalina Ash series has been designed with power in mind for the player who is looking full, penetrating tones and solid overall features. 

Ash wood produces a lively tone that projects a clear, cutting sound. The snare quickly reacts with an aggressive tone that bites with authority. 

The UV gloss finishes (AC and AR colours) fully reveal the visually striking ash wood grain pattern throughout the drum set. The LBB colour option features Liquid Black wrap with black nickel hardware for a sleek and mysterious appearance. 

Other features include pro tom holders, heavy 2.5 triple-flanged hoops, die-cast bass drum claws, telescopic spurs, GTS tom suspension systems.

The Renown Series

Designed for the touring drummer who requires "That Great Gretsch Sound" the Renown series offers incredible tone by retaining classic Gretsch features. 

Attributes include USA Rock Maple shells, 30-degree bearing edges, die-cast hoops, GTS suspension systems and Silver Sealer interior finishes. Gretsch Renown projects a warm, distinctively Gretsch sound with an added contemporary punch.

Fantastic pro end drums at a lower price, one word – KILLER DRUMS!!!!!!

The Gretsch New Classic

At a time when Retro is as hip as ever, Gretsch embellishes the retro vibe by offering a true new professional drum set in the New Classic series. 

Featuring proportionate Gretsch-formula maple shells, this drum-set produces a vintage Gretsch tonality while giving these drums their own distinctive sound. Proportionate shells increase in thickness as shell diameters increase to give a full, balanced tonality across the entire drum set. 

Classy appointments include vintage styled tube lugs, the very low mass “ITS” integrated tom suspension system and 9025 hinged tom and floor tom leg brackets. Retro looks combined with hip innovations…a true New Classic.
