Hello all,

On the hunt for a new kit and just recently heard vinnies gig with herbie where he played on his siganture white gretsch kit. Just wondering if anyone could tell me a bit more about the kit or if anyone owns or plays one. Sounds f**ing beautiful in the DVD I watched but would love to hear from some owners or anyone who has played on one before.

Thanks!

Colors are beautiful, but I've never seen him play a strange looking rack like that
in the picture. Also, I don't know the specs of Vinnie's kit unfortunately.
He tunes his snares quite high mostly.
And I don't like the sound of his big china :).

Anyway, that is his kit:

It's Gretsches mysterious formula shells for their USA Custom series made of thin 6 ply maple and probably some gum wood thrown in.
