Here we introduce a stunning example of the progressive Jazz Gretsch USA kit. A truly one-of-a-kind kit to mark the 50th Anniversary of a true Drum Legend - Fred Gretsch.
This kit harks back to the the heyday of 1950's jazz, seen predominately within the bebop era and played by such greats as Tony Williams, Elvin Jones, Max Roach and Philly Joe Jones. This kit oozes class, with its era-correct hardware, including vintage rail mount and bass drum spurs, it's built to a spec not seen on the 'average' drum kit.
Signed by Fred Gretsch Himself!
Released as part of Fred Gretsch's 50th year in the drum making industry this kit is super limited. A truly wonderful addition to any serious drummer's collection, but will stand the rigours of touring if you take it on the road.
Please Note - This Kit has been on display for a short period of time with some very minor signs of use. Features a slight kink in the wrap but otherwise A+ Condition.
Please call our Birmingham Store on 0121 359 5056 for more information or to book a demo. Come down and see it for yourself!
The Great Gretsch Sound
This USA Custom is made with the classic Gretsch 6-ply maple formula which results in that 'Great Gretsch sound'. The kit also features 30 degree baring edges and classic sliver sealer shell interiors. Each shell interior also features Fred Gretsch's signature, hand signed by the man himself.
Furthermore, the Aqua Satin Flame finish doesn't just capture the essence of vintage Jazz, but throws you right back to Mintons Playhouse in 1950's Harlem, keeping time for the likes of Bird, Miles or Coltrane!
So if you're feeling 'kind of blue, don't miss out on a classic kit, from a classic era. Take that 'giant step' and grab a piece of history from PMT House of Drums Birmingham.
