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

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. :)
I really wish Gretsch would sell the Renown Jazz configuration in the US, or at least make the 18" bass drums available for individual purchase. I'd snatch one up in a heartbeat.
