Re: Let's see your Gretsch kits (saved the best for last!)
No comparison to some of the fine high end kits here, but when I decided to get back into playing about 8 yrs ago I picked up an affordable Black Hawk kit on Ebay and within a year was in my first band. Cymbals, stands and throne were swapped for high end stuff but these drums have endured 5 yrs of gigs and practice with hundreds of shows and I am a hard hitter. Never had anything fail and like another member said....it matters what kind of heads you use. Decent heads and of course drum mics make a low end kit sound like a set of DW's!
