Gretsch USA Ribbon Mahogany Drum Kits

Posted by Maisie . on 11th August 2014

If you read my previous blog about the Gretsch Custom Select drum kits, then you’ll know that we now have them in stock. We’ve just got round to setting up a little Gretsch display and these limited edition drum kit are grabbing all the attention!

Today, Mick and I have been taking some quick snaps of these Gretsch drum kits to share with everyone that can’t get to the shop and see for yourself. I’ve included some of the images & videos of the drum kits below… but if you can pop in store to check them out I recommend you do!

Each of the Gretsch USA Custom Select drum kits featured above are constructed from west African Mahogany, complete with an exterior ply of Ribbon Mahogany. The interlocking wood grain construction gives the beautiful ribbon effect which can be seen on the photos to the right and below.

The 4-piece Play Boy drum kits have slightly different drum shell hardware from the classic 5-piece. Both the Playboy Retro and Playboy Bop drum kits feature single centred lugs which have been designed with the popular 1960’s Gretsch drum kits in mind. The 5-Piece drum kit features double lugs which sit top and bottom of the drum shell.

Come in store at drumshop and check out these hand crafted drum kits before they’re gone!
