Gretsch USA Custom 20" / 12" / 14" Kit & Snare
The epitome and legend of "That Great Gretsch Sound." The USA Custom series is hand crafted every step of the way in Gretsch's Ridgeland, SC factory by highly experienced and skilled drumsmiths.
The legendary Gretsch formula 6-ply shell is the cornerstone of that legendary sound. Shells are completed with 30-degree bearing edges [note: see specs below], Silver Sealer, die-cast hoops and custom finishes -- ingredients which combine to form a sound long recognized for its classic clear timbre, balanced tone, and explosive projection.
Custom design your Gretsch dream kit "a la carte" by choosing your desired drum sizes, colors and hardware options. The Gretsch legend continues.
This kit is comprised of:
*14" (depth) x 20" (diameter) bass drum;
*8" x 12" mounted tom;
*14" x 14" floor tom; and
*5" x 14" 8-lug snare drum with Lightning throw and "fishtail" butt plate.
We specified double 45 degree bearing edges (a feature borrowed from the Vinnie Colaiuta Signature Snare) on the toms and snare drum, and the standard 30-degree edge on the bass drum. This is likely the first kit ever to come from the factory with double 45s on the toms!
The finish is Satin Rosewood. Snare stand not included; we'd recommend that or a tom arm clamp for mounting the rack tom.
