We asked... Why Gretsch?

His first drumset ever purchased was a Gretsch kit. He began playing Gretsch 22 years ago and still plays them today because of that great Gretsch sound and reliability.


Always practice four limb coordination. Work with a metronome. Practice to become affluent in all musical styles.
