120 Years in the Making ...

Presenting the 120th Anniversary Round Badge Drum Sets

From early beginnings at a small Brooklyn NY shop in 1883, Friedrich Gretsch started his business at the young age of 16, built on a foundation of hard work and a dedication to making a quality professional product. One hundred and twenty years later his vision still rings clear today.

To celebrate its 120th Anniversary, we pay tribute to some of the finest, classic designs of the Gretsch drum company with a 4-piece round badge be-bop set along with a selection of snare drums that add a modern feel to the classic designs that Gretsch pioneered and has refined over these last 120 years.


Available in (CS) Champagne Sparkle Nitron or (DKWW) Dark Walnut Lacquer.
Only 120 Limited Edition kits will be crafted and produced worldwide in 2003.
