Re: Metal drummers using Gretsch?
I personally know two guys who play pretty extreme forms of metal who play Catalina Maples. They are great drums, no better or worse, in my opinion, than other major maunfacturers higher end kits.
I am curious why you ask? Is it because you play metal and like Gretsch drums. but are afraid of being mocked by the metal community? If so I wouldn't worry. If you can play nobody will care what brand of drums you are playing.
