Very good set, I dont know why ppl would expect top drumheads to come with a new product, but ok. I have Evans G2 clear on top and bottom toms, great sound. Tom mounting system leaves a little something to be desired, but once they are tight, they are tight. Snare has a great sound, very easy to tune if you know what your doing, as is with anything that you do. Would've liked to see even amount of lugs on 10 and 12 inch tom, but as I said, if you know how to tune its not a problem.Very durable, great sound, good looking expandable kit. I have the fusion kit and added a 16 in floor tom.As anyone would suggest, don't buy the cheaper hardware and cymbals, go for the gusto and get something a little better. I just got a shell pack and bought the rest on ebay. Saved a lot of money.

I have had this set for about 3-4 years now. They have been played a lot. Yes the heads are not the best but they are easy to replace. Only thing is, I did not replace them for a month or two and when I went to drop the head on my 13 inch tom, it would not fit. I tried 3 different brands of heads. Evan, Remo, Aquirian and none dropped on. Came to realize that the drum is out of round. Thats the only problem I have had. Guess i should have replced the heads sooner. And the snare is little rough around the edges to tune. I bought a new strand snare for the bottom. Seems to work better. Other than that it's a great set. Gretsch is about all I've played besides Tama.

Comments about Gretsch Drums BlackHawk 5-Piece Drum Set:

This is an awesome drum set. It provides a deep rich tone that can't be beat for the price. I would definitely recomend it as an entry or mid range level drum set. Don't pass up this deal.

Great Kit

By Go.

from New Hampshire

Comments about Gretsch Drums BlackHawk 5-Piece Drum Set:

This was my first ever drum-kit and I still love it three years later. I changed the drum heads, but don't actually know what mine were because they were a gift. I had to tune it a bit, and the cymbals it comes with are probably the worst you can get. I changed the crash to a Zildjian K Series Custom Dark(love that too) but the ride is fine for what I need it for. the hi-hat eats your sticks though. The kit itself is loud and boomy. The bass packs a nice punch for rock, but I think it might be a little loud for Jazz playing.

Fantastic Drums for Their Price!

Comments about Gretsch Drums BlackHawk 5-Piece Drum Set:

This set is absolutely one of the best sets I have ever played on or used in the recording studio. I love the double tom holder set-up, that switches from 2 toms to 1 tom. The heads suck, but that's common with all drums like these. Replace them with some Remo Pinstripes or Coated Emperors, and you're good to go! Some features, such as matching wood hoops for the bass drum and Gretsch's GTS tom system were overlooked, in my opinion. But, compared to others, these are a steal!

Classic rock sound from mahogany shells

By Drum Dork

from Charleston, SC

See all my reviews

Comments about Gretsch Drums BlackHawk 5-Piece Drum Set:

Great drumset for the price. Heads should be changed, I like evens blue hydrolics and a evens genera snare head, good dry vented sound. The shells make it have a punchy classic rock tone depending on tuning. Solid manufacturing make this a well put together kit. Nothing cheap about it, except the low price. Great value and supurb quality. I would like to see some better hardware with this kit, although the hardware that comes with it isn't to shabby. The bass pedal doesn't do it for me. If you invest in this kit, get ready to have some good fun.

Comments about Gretsch Drums BlackHawk 5-Piece Drum Set:

i've had this set for almost a year and it's pretty good. You need to buy new heads for it, though, i have Evans g2's and it sounds pretty good. And i suggest buying Zildgian zbt, zxt, or z cymbals for this set.
