Found a great deal from a cool guy in Knoxville. Long drive but well worth it! I recently got the G2/G1 combo, and played the kit out for the first time on Saturday, April 4th. It sounded amazing to say the least. There were four bands, and the first band's drummer was very late (but we knew this was going to happen). I called him and told him he could play my kit if he wanted, and when he got there, I think he was pleasantly surprised. He complemented it after we both played, so I was even happier. I'll post pics of the actual show later.

Anyway, this is a Gretsch Renown Maple in Autumn Burst. The sizes are a 20x22 virgin bass drum, 7x8 tom, 8x10 tom, 9x12 tom, 14x14 floor tom, 5x13 Tama Stagestar Snare (nice aux snare), and a 5x14 DW Collector's Series Black over Brass Snare Drum. Check out my thread to see more pics!

70's gretsch fully restored. covering removed, mounting holes patched up, lacquered with silver sparkle, and upgraded hardware with gibraltar style heavy duty spurs, and new gretsch floor tom legs and mounts. t-claws switched out to rods


bass drum showing some of the finish and the stop sign badges


here is the new floor tom mounts much better than the 70's gear


the new spurs with replacement hoops also done in the silver lacquer.


i'll post some more pictures later on once I get everything set up.

i'm playing around with the tom/cymbal set up. I usually play with a 12x8 tom so this drum has a bit of a jump up than what i'm used to and the die cast rims are taller than rolled rims. I would like the crash a little closer too but i'm still trying to figure it out.

I think i'm going to buy a dw 9999 double tom/cymbal stand which should move the crash cymbal closer.

I might put up either a 16" a custom projection crash on the right, or put up a 20" a custom ride on the right.

but as you can tell I like a simple set up and I don't want to add too much extra crap to my hardware case. It's already packed to the gills and weights a ton.

hey stillgroovin!

Your Kit is very nice, too. On your photos the finish looks better than on my ones...
I've got a little Update: I purchased a DW 5500 Hi Hat matching to my double pedal.

my pedals cost almost as much as my kit^^
whatever it works very well. i hope i can report about new cymbals very soon. my present ones are very crappy.....

PS:
airsmunch1, your throne is very cooool :-D

Hey everyone, I'm really liking all the kits here.

Here is my setup:
4 piece Gretsch catalina club mod with a pork pie little squealer snare, DW pedal and Zildjian ZBT cymbals. Got a great deal on craigslist for the whole setup. The next day, I was able to sell my nighthawk for what I was asking for it easily.

The night I brought it home.


It lives in the basement!

I am confused by that...Do other people play the drums so it's set up that way? If you are the only drummer why not set it up the way you like it?

The G1s are very nice sounding on these kits!

I'm thinking about possibly adding one of these CMs to my quiver.....?

The G1's are deffinately the way to go on this kit imo. I took them off for some ec2's the first week I had them, but ended up putting the G1's back on. I guess gretsch knew what they were doing, this kit sounds best with no muffling. I had to tame the floor tom down a little with a cut down e-ring though.

^^ Gretsch now has a 5 pc Club mod in a 1up 2 down configuration in silver/black sparkle fade finish. Looks pretty sweet!

My Catalina Birch.

I picked it up for $400.

There were barely any stick marks on the heads and the stickers were still on the cymbals. *one* little ding in the bass drum's finish from a rack tom being too close. Sounds fantastic after tuning it. I'm a bit overprotective of my drums now....the finish is nice, and I intend to keep it that way.....even if it means using a microphone stand as a lance to keep bar patrons away at shows.

that looks great. I saw this yesterday in the musicians friend catalog. The details are cool. Offset lugs chrome in the top black on the bottom. I wish it had black legs on the floors.

Nice kit dude! Love the finish too...!
There is (maybe was) a kit like this at a local music go round that I was eyeballing..
Gretsch FTW!

Thanks. I wasn't really sure if I'd want a birch kit...but after tuning the rack toms while looking it over, I was sold. I'm very happy with how they sound. I've got to get cymbals though....it came with ZBT's.
