It's hard to think of drums without thinking of Gretsch, and there are good reasons for that. There's no magic trick to earning so much respect from percussionists everywhere - Gretsch simply did it by producing excellent instruments and gear that set the standards for the whole industry. In every drum they put together, Gretsch shows a real passion for what they do, as well as a commitment to the best build and sound quality.
Are you looking to replace percussion equipment you already have, or searching for something new entirely? Gretsch has you covered either way. Newcomers to this outstanding brand can easily gear up from scratch with a full shell pack or drum set. Or, if you're in the market for an upgrade, take a look at their individual drum options. You can rest assured that any Gretsch instrument you play will be up to the task of helping you reach your potential as a drummer.
Here are a few suggestions to get you started. For an excellently-balanced tone with big projection and power, consider the Gretsch Renown series. Home-grown U.S.A. rock maple shells, 30-degree bearing edges, die-cast hoops and painted UV gloss finishes are just a few of the perks of this collection. Looking for an instrument built to the exacting specifications of a famous drummer? Try a signature drum like the Taylor Hawkins Signature Snare. This well-rounded drum is tight and focused, yet still relaxed enough to create fluid rolls. When you want to try for a pro's sound, there's no better way than to try it on a drum built by that artist's own rules.
Some people might think of drums as simple instruments, but we know that's far from the truth. It takes a lot of experience and know-how to build great percussion, and those are things that Gretsch delivers in spades. From the studio to the stage, Gretsch drums are performing all over the world - so don't hesitate put them to work for you. You can be confident they'll give you amazing sound.
