Default Re: Let's see your Gretsch kits (saved the best for last!)

New Renown’s in Satin Walnut Burst. This is a limited finish kit offered for $1,142.00 delivered. Quite a deal for sure. The kit features an 8, 10, and 12 rack toms with a 14x16 floor and 22x18 bass. I also own a Cat Maple 7 piece kit. Both kits sound great and the Cats hold their own quite well with the Renown’s sound wise but the Renown’s have the upgraded features that make this kit a real steal. One item this kit offers the new model Renown’s do not have is the GTS tom system. The new kits have a bracket attached to the lugs that just looks flawed to me. The hanging tom system is one of the best there is and I can’t figure why Gretsch moved away from this design. Having the Cat’s and the Renown’s is a win win for me.
