How Come I Can't Find RN1 Add On Drums?

I want to get an 18" Floor Tom for my Blue Metal Gretsch Renown RN1 kit.

I've emailed everyone and no one has them in stock, they all say that they have to get them from Gretsch but can't tell me when they'll be in.

I wonder why it's so difficult to find add on drums, the kit is new?

The RN1 is being discontinued and is being replaced with the RN2. Option toms for these kits are almost always a custom order from Gretsch.

If you want an RN1 option tom, you need to order it immediately, as the window of opportunity is closing (or has closed already). You'll have to scour eBay if the window has closed.

The only reason a music store will 'stock' an RN1 option tom is if someone ordered one and never picked it up.

You're not going to like this last part...

Ordering an 18" FT is probably going to run you about $500.

KamaK have you read this somewhere? I can't find anything about an RN2 anywhere.

Never mind . The model has changed without fanfare. The 2016's have Model numbers starting with RN2 got it.

I was looking at the Walnut Renowns in 10/12/16/22 and wanted a 14". Called Fork's and they said 90-120 days and $425.
