What We Think

Gretsch's Brooklyn series drums pay homage to an era that propelled modern Gretsch into infamy. The retro stylings with modern processes bring new life into the catalog while giving this series its own voice.

Some familiar features that are shared with the USA Custom Series are Gretsch’s classic 30-degree bearing edges and Silver Sealer applied to the shell interior. One of the key differences between the two lines is the shell material. Brooklyn drums have a 6-ply maple/poplar hybrid shell that’s designed to be punchy yet warm. Another feature is Gretsch’s new “302” 3mm double flanged hoops. These hoops are thicker and much more rigid than the typical double-flanged hoops while providing a familiar feel to the Gretsch experience. 

The Brooklyn series delivers look, sound, and feel of Gretsch at a slightly cheaper price point than that of the USA Custom. While the finishes and sizes that are available within the series are not as diverse, you can rest assured that you will still get "That Great Gretsch Sound" from the Brooklyn drums.

Manufacturer's Description from Gretsch Drums

4 piece Gretsch Brooklyn Series Euro Dark Ebony Satin Drum Kit

Proudly handcrafted in Ridgeland, South Carolina, USA, by a team of veteran drum builders, Gretsch Brooklyn has a sound that is at once recognizable and essential, yet distinctively reinvented. The Gretsch drum design team molded the Brooklyn series by combining classic Gretsch elements while infusing it with new attributes. They expanded upon traditional drum designs to shape a sound that retains fundamental Gretsch characteristics while projecting a fresh voice. Brooklyn and Gretsch share an inseparable history that is part of American music history and folklore. It is a shared legacy that cannot be duplicated. Today, Brooklyn represents a renaissance community that vibrates with contemporary artistic expression, youthful innovation and passionate musical commitment. Gretsch Brooklyn series celebrates the rejuvenated Brooklyn city passion and spirit and expands on its distinctive shared American experience.
