Nice, The Gretsch Renown kits sound really good. That is a nice looking kit and the Pork Pie Patina snare is gorgeous! I wish I never sold mine and am thinking of getting another!

Na, just evolution. This is the first time I've ever had 3 toms up top so I'm adjusting to that.

I would put the Gretsch Renowns up to just about any other drums in their price range. I have basically the same compliment of drums in about the same configuration. They work out very well and I enjoy playing three across the top. When I bought mine, I replaced the resonant heads on the toms to a heavier, Evans G1 clear head for a beefier and more low frequency sound.



Have fun with them.

Dennis

I actually rather meant the fact that you seem to have setup a bunch of rides only.

Like this:
the cymbal all the way to his left is a crash.....and often times the cymbal in the middle of the cluster of 3 on his right is a crash......but not always ......so not only rides

You mean on Keith's setup, right? Yes, fair enough. With that being said, Keith usually rides
and crashes all his cymbals anyway :).

a cymbal is a cymbal is a cymbal to me

I have never been much for calling one a ride and one a crash........a cymbal either sounds good or it doesn't

no need to categorize it for specific use in my opinion

I know Keith feels the same

Nice setup! I've been using coated heads the for last 10 years, getting used to the clear has been interesting as well.

I am pretty good at spotting and identifying drum equipment! I used to work at Guitar Center, plus I study drums for no apparent reason... LOL. I also used to have a Pork Pie Patina Snare.

Once again, great choice in equipment, especially that snare! I plan to buy another, but I may put wood hoops on it this time.

For some reason, I think they'd sound amazing on this snare!
