Hi all!

After seeing all these beautilicious Gretsch gems here I felt like adding to the treasure trove by way of my first post.
I just acquired this fine example of a USA Custom. Best sounding drums I ever played!

Anybody else here who has this specific model? It's the 130th Anniversary Satin Gold Flame set that came out in the fourth quarter of 2013. 35 were made and this happens to be #1.
It seems that Gretsch didn't use the right glue with the wrap so the ends are a bit loose.
But hey, nothings perfect. :-)

The set came with a matching 14x5 snare drum, but I also just bought this nice 1965 Ludwig Supraphonic. The chrome snare fits well with the Satin Gold Flame, methinks.

So many lovely kits,

here is my new beauty, Gretsch Renown Maple RN1, only had it for a few months.

it replaces my dear departed Gretsch Catalina Maple, that along with most of my gear was lost in the bushfires we had on the Central Coast of Australia a few months ago.

I have barely played it, as along with our gear we lost our Rehearsal shed and our singers amazing house. so its been a tricky few months but thanks to insurance i now get to play this beast.

if you look close you might spot a smaller version of everyones fav drummer

Just when I get all Ludwig crazy I come across another Gretsch kit that wows me. Nice Renown maples. Gretsch has best top to bottom line of kits out there today. Just my opinion.

Ludwig is sorely lacking in bop kit configurations.
I wish they would remedy that.
They've got you covered for snares though - that's for sure.

Gretsch's line-up and configurations are more to my liking.

Rub-a-dub-dub. Catalina Club :) Congrats to everyone on this thread. You all have such beautiful drums!! Just got these last weekend. Copper Sparkle CCJ. I've replaced all the batters w/Remo Skyntone heads, but kept the Gretsch stock resos on the toms for now. I also put a Hazy Diplomat and PureSound snare strand on the snare. Tuned it up and the snare is now actually one of the best I've ever played on ... what a big difference with new heads and snares!! Everything sounds warm and vintage. I play instrumental surf, rockabilly and early 50s rock n' roll. Vintage 60s Zildjians. Enjoy!!

I agree. Sparkletone, those are beauties. And they are a mid-level Catalinas ($500-600 tops?) Proof that Gretsch is king lately.

Nice photgraphy too. Enjoy them.

After my unrealistic 'show all', here is the working model inspired by Sugarfoot Moffet and Stanton Moore.

20" main bass, with the 22" on a slave to the right. I can use the punchy 20" for the main, and then give it more depth with the 22". Like a stomp box for guitarists.

Replacement custom decals came on Friday, well chuffed, as they match the one on the 22" perfectly

Here's my main kit for my band - Renown Maple 8,10,12,14,22 - modified with Yamaha YESS mounts that I did myself. Also, I refinished the hoops and lugs (they were abused). The snare is a round badge from the 50's that I stripped the wrap fro, sanded, and had my toddler paint. Mostly Yamaha hardware, plus I added a Trick Universal Drive Shaft to the 9315 pedals.

After a few years of heavy playing and several shows on my Classic Maple kit, I took a turn and replaced it with these Brooklyns. Excellent sounding drums and VERY well made! That's a skull-cracking 14x6.5" Gretsch cast aluminum snare back there.

Here are my new babies. I got them 2 weeks ago. I left original GTS mounts to the seller and installed Atlas mounts on toms. It looks a lot much cleaner but I have to say the mounts do not work for me. They chocked a drums significantly so I ordered new low profiled GTS. I hope they will arrive soon. I have New Classics but these Customs sing even better!!!
I would like to get a matching 14" or 15" floor tom if anybody has one for sale...

Just a question if you don't mind. All of the toms and the bass seem to be cut down in size but you still have a 16 x 16 floor tom? I was thinking maybe 16 x 14?

I also note that the lugs are staggered on the toms. The 8 has a left hand stagger on the reso, the ten has a right hand stagger on the reso and the 12 is not staggered at all. Why not all the same. I realize the 12 didn't need to be staggered but it would have looked better I think. Love the kit though. Just being anal.

To be honest Gruntersdad, I bought this as it was on Ebay some time ago when it was all but impossible to order a Gretsch kit due to the company's pitfall position at the time. But but low and behold, it was the exact color, diameters that I wanted overall given I am a big fan of 20" bass drums and 'fast' shortstack type of toms; I bought it right up!. The only thing is, I wouldn't mind to have a 12x14 hanging or floor tom added to it. The staggering of lugs doesn't bother me because for those fast sizes it's not possible any other way. And to do the 12" that way would be more 'novelty' than I'd like. As for the particular sizes, they were a factory dimension available at the time when I researched it.. Check out this page from this 1981 Gretsch catalog here,page 14. http://www.gretschdrums.com/ebooks/c...ndex.html#/16/



Cheers,

I'm a Yamaha guy at heart, but have stepped into the Brooklyn realm. My kit is merely OK to what I've seen in this thread. These pics are a bit dated. I'll have to take new ones. I ended up with new cymbals and a snare addiction.

A Gretsch 40's orphaned shells project. The finish is close to the Gretsch Burnt Orange. I was going to put a clear Gloss Lacquer over them but could not do it - I liked the Satin look too much.
1949 24" bass drum
1940's 9x13 tom
1947 16" floor tomo
1948 6.5x14 Super Structure snare

The drums in real life are not as dark/dull as the appear in the fourth photo & not as bright as they are in the last photo. I need to take some photos outside in daylight.

It took a while to locate all the shells - the snare, bass drum and floor tom came with almost all original parts including the original badges. All parts that I ended up buying are era correct. I tucked calfhide onto the original wood flesh-hoops that came with the shells.

These drums have huge tone and are tons of fun to play. I use a 50's WFL Speedking pedal and late 50's to early 60's WFL hihat (model 1121 - NOT PICTURED HERE). I was using my Pearl 2000 Series hihat when I took these photos.

Yes Gutenberg, awesome. Beauty's. Gretsch has really raised the bar high above all other major competitors. And that kit is well under $1,000 I imagine.

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.

Now the Pics
