Today’s working drummers need a kit that can do it all—and do it well. The newly designed 2016 Gretsch Renown is one of the most versatile drum sets ever made. Now, with one drum set, you can play with the sensitivity and touch to handle the smoothest grooves of the 1950s; the attack and projection required to drive the most powerful compositions of the 60s and 70s; and the clarity and vibrance needed to faithfully reproduce the clean studio sounds of the 80s, 90s and beyond.
The Gretsch Renown series brings the distinctive Great Gretsch sound at a lower price for working drummers while still retaining the classic Gretsch features. 30-degree bearing edges, the silver sealer interior, and the classic Gretsch lugs are shared classic features derived from the USA Custom line. The new Gretsch Renown drums bring a change from die-cast hoops to the '302' hoops. These hoops can be found on Gretsch's Brooklyn and Broadkaster series drums. Gretsch '302' hoops produce a similarly focused sound to Die-Cast hoops, but are lighter in weight and less rigid, allowing the drum to breathe a little more to achieve its maximum resonance. Complemented with new tom- suspension mounts, USA Remo heads, and easily adjustable T-Wing screws the Gretsch Renowns continue to improve and enhance what is already a tried and tested formula.
Renown still features the classic 7-ply Gretsch formula maple shells, with 30-degree bearing edges and exclusive “Silver Sealer” interiors. But this Renown comes with a new twist with the addition of the Gretsch's player-friendly “302” hoop—the same hoop used on Gretsch's Brooklyn and Broadkaster series drums. Gretsch 302 hoops produce the desirable focused sound like that of a die cast hoop, but are lighter in weight and less rigid, allowing the drum to better “breath” and achieve maximum resonance.
The 2016 Renown delivers the traditional Gretsch sound with an incredibly open, harmonic tone that supplies the versatility needed to meet the demands of the hardest working drummers.
