Professional performance and beautiful tone.
Renown Maple delivers professional performance with an abundance of the great sound for which Gretsch drums are known. All drums in this 4-piece Renown pack feature thin, USA Rock Maple drum shells that are cut with the Gretsch standard 30-degree bearing edges and finished with Silver Sealer shell interiors. The 22" x 18" bass drum is undrilled and features matching wood hoops, heavy-duty telescopic spurs with disappearing tips and casted claws with fully lined rubber isolators to protect contact points between claws and wood hoops. All toms are equipped with classic Gretsch appointments including die-cast hoops, casted GS-9025 hinged tom/floor tom leg brackets and Gretsch lugs. The 16" x 14" floor tom has extra heavy-duty 12.7mm legs with chambered rubber tips that lengthen tonal resonance. Toms and floor tom drums include Evans G2 clear batter heads; bass drum is outfitted with Evans EMAD batter head for enhanced low-frequency punch. This drum set is finished in transparent ebony lacquer to allow the grain of the wood to be visible under the high-gloss lacquer finish. As a special offer, the 8" x 7" tom is included with the Gretsch Renown drum shell package. All tom arms and clamps are included.
Cymbals, snare drum, and hardware sold separately.

Comments about Gretsch Drums Renown 4-Piece Shell Pack with Free 8" Tom:
If your looking for this price range of kit or even some more expensive sets THEN BUY THIS KIT WITHOUT HESITATION!
I own the autumn burst finished Kit. I bought it 2 years ago with the 22x18, 8,10,12, toms and 14" floor tom. This kit tunes up well and sounds fantastic. Competes with my Rogers vintage kit and my dw custom kit easily. The toms absolutely sing fantasticaly and the kick can crack out metal, thumpout rock, or boom out funk and jazz. The emad batter head on the kick thats included really helps make the drum even more wide ranged. [I added 2 of the Evans Eq pillows to the kick]. The bass drum claws are recessed, are easliy tuned, keep the tension rods from backing out, and easily fit into a case/ bag. The toms have a great deal of warm sound and fundimental tone flowing from the northamerican rock maple shells and the die cast hoops help center the tone round, out the drum and add a brightness to the warm tone with a clean crack when struck with a rimshot. With the 30 degree rounded edges the 14" floor tom can be tuned to mimic larger drums for that classic rock tast or tuned up for that be-bop pop.
These drums are designed to be top end professional drums in every aspect of the idea without paying the almost double or more price tag of custom professional maple drums.
Simply put you cannot go wrong with these drums and they fit every style from classic Grestch style jazz drumming to the most intense and fast metal, but shine superbly at pop and rock.
If you need a kit thats great for your personal style or a kit thats versital enough for the most wide ranged entertainment/wedding/party band then this kit can cover it all.
I give it a 9 and not a 10 because Gretsch uses the rims mounting system that is a copy of half the drum manufactures currently producing pro, intermediate, and custom drums rather than a more unique system of their own design or such as drum workshop and mapex. DW, Mapex, ect offer suspension mounting that doesnt hold the tension rods and instead holds the lugs or under the lugs. The system works just as well but the difference is not noticed in tone only when changing heads and the drum must be removed if a batter head has to be changed at gig or studio.ONCE AGAIN THIS KIT IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND WONT STEER YOU WRONG. IF YOU CAN TUNE A DRUM THEN YOU WILL LOVE THE TONE OOZING FROM THESE BABIES.ITS "THAT GREAT GRETSCH SOUND!"
With top end rock hard maple from north america, rims mounting, PERFECT edges, diecast hoops, beautiful finishes, and a tone that cant be beat the renown maple series from Grestch is the best quality kit in its price range.
Once again this kit is packed with awesome features and a better tone than anything that others are offered in this price range and is the only kit with true compition to the DW performance line.
