Re: Gretsch Renown Maple vs PDP Concept Maple

The $2999 price you see above for my Purewoods was the MSRP in the USA. I bought mine new at $2450 with a lower Canadian Dollar in 2007. I saw a 4pc PWAM for sale under $1500...that was a few years...

Re: Gretsch Renown Maple vs PDP Concept Maple

I've played a PDP kit - they're great drums. However, they do not compare (IMHO) to the Gretsch Renown drums and hardware. As above...the Renown drums are basically a USA Custom Gretsch kit...

Re: Buying First Drum Kit

Some of my best crash and splash cymbals, and for sure my 50's K ride, are among my very best cymbals. I have to say I'm not in a band right now and I'm not recording on them. This is just my...

Re: Sorry - here's another look at my current tools

Bo - how do you lke the 'clear' batters? Do you use them on the resonant side as well?

Re: Sorry - here's another look at my current tools

Look very nice! I like your remote hats....I'm going to look into that more.

Your setup looks tons of fun to play. I like Pearl hardware myself.

Re: Frankenstein kits.....mad scientists rejoice

I like mixing it up with the kits too.

Here I have a 1948 Gretsch snare drum, a 1949 24" Gretsch bass drum....I stained the 40's drums in Burnt Orange-like (matched a Gretsch swatch but did not go...

Re: Sold all my drums..now what?

Yes - Gretsch Renown are killer drums - the Purewood Series are pro grade. I have the Purewood African 6pc as you know Harry. They compare easily to my Custom USA Gretsch. I highly recommend them....

My guess is mid-late...

Re: I just acquired this 1950 Gretsch Bop Kit

Totally agree with you Bob.
I was a little selfish with my aforementioned comments in that I just could not believe my eyes when I got my copy of the 58 catalog and looked for my finish and it...

Re: I just acquired this 1950 Gretsch Bop Kit

The prices in the catalog are to die for....especially the K Zildjian cymbals - my God!

I sold the drums. They're very nice but I had to downsize a bit when I moved to another City in July. The person that bought them seemed thrilled and I gave him a good deal. They are built like a...

Re: If you had to choose what would you get and why?

You have some great options selected there - all of them are very good drums.

I would go with the Brooklyn Series. A 1820bd/10&12" toms/1414 floor would set you back about $2700+tx maybe less. ...

Re: Identify this cheap snare plz

I would buy it. You get a nice bag......and a cheap drum. You can make pretty much any drum sound good....or at least not too bad.
If you don't want to play/practice on it......pack it up nicely...

Re: Vintage WFL Ludwigs, need info, advice

Check out the Pearl 2000 Series snare stand if you haven't already. They're heavy...which is good when you're dealing with hanging a tom over/close to the bd. They have tons of adjustment. I have...
