Thank you, Adam!
It's a Gretsch Renown Jazz with maple shells in Dark Walnut (but my finish seems to be more beautiful than other, it's unique, more like the USA Custom walnut than Renown walnut). The Renowns jazz kits are specials in Europe. I guess they could sell for pretty much in America since they're based on USA Customs, but at an affordable price.

The kick port doesn't make as much difference, it's nice to have if you'll mic it. I got a pillow inside it also, so it ruins the purpose. Hehe...
I've heard it on other drums, and it's very individual, gives a nice punchy low-end sound. :)
