OVERVIEW

A full, quality setup producing a straight-forward attack at an epic value.

The Gretsch Energy 5-piece Drum Set Package comes complete with hardware and Sabian SBR cymbal pack.

Hardware is double braced and includes stylized Gretsch Energy pedal boards. All Poplar shells have 30-degree bearing edges, and feature 5 lug configuration on 10" and 12" toms with Gretsch style lug that draw from the rich Gretsch lineage. The suspended tom hardware also includes memory locks and a ball and socket setup to ensure an easy and ergonomic setup.

Comments about Gretsch Drums Energy 5-Piece Drum Set With Hardware and Sabian Cymbals:

I got this set on an impulse buy. I'd been looking for a nice-looking kit with a good sound and I fell for this set right away.
The set they gave me was the display drums, so when I got them, I really had to work on tuning them right. The string that holds the snares on the drum on one side broke when I tried to tighten them, so I would recommend re-tying them if you get them with the snares on.
The heads aren't the best, I would really recommend getting new heads with the drums set.
The cymbals they give you with it are pretty low quality, but they should last you until you have enough to buy better ones; at least they're name brand and don't sound dirt cheap.
Despite that, the hardware is all great and the drums sound really nice at the end of the day. I got the Grey Steel color and drums and they look sweet. I like to have my ride closer to me, so I used the tom mounts to connect the larger tom off of the crash (which I put on my left side) and the smaller off of the hi-hats stand.

        Comments about Gretsch Drums Energy 5-Piece Drum Set With Hardware and Sabian Cymbals:

        I personally love Gretsh drums my dad has a John Bonham style 1972 Gretsh drum set and I love playing it. This drum set is fantastic I've had it for 4 years now and when I take it to shows it's an easy and fast set up and break down. The sound quality of the toms and snare are sharp, responsive, huge tone, and can take a beating. I don't have cases for the shells and it still sounds great. I would recommend getting new heads for them but that's a given and even if you don't new heads right away the factor heads that come on the set are surprisingly good for what they are, not that durable however. Over all it's a simple drum set that'll sound great and last. Definitely buy totally worth the money even if they are zildjian cymbols its still a great start and a good deal too

              Great set for the beginner. Great price and comes complete except the throne. Gotta do a lot to get tone right. Taping heads, pillow in bass, etc. But overall not bad. Got one for my kid and I am impressed with the quality and value in the set. Thumbs up for Gretsch.
