Default Re: Jazz drum kit

Many thanks Anthony!

I actually saw a video of the new brooklyn bop configuration with 18x14 kick on some of the namm show videos on youtube, the one I saw was in a satin finsh, looked lovely.
The brooklyns obviously have a more ambient tone than the usa custom's, and are a little tubbier/rounding sounding, but I was under the impression that the gumwood maple combo, was the coveted jazz sound recipe?What's your thoughts on t he brooklyn versus usa sound?
Another question, having not owned a modern day Gretsch, but observing them in drum shops, what is your opinion on their build quality in comparison to say a company that's very consistent like Yamaha?I realise that modern day Gretsch shells are made by Keller, and they're high quality, and that the hardware is gibraltar based?
