GRETSCH ADDS MOTOR CITY BLACK TO POPULAR RENOWN 57 OFFERING
August 08, 2011
Motor City Black adds a new color dimension to Gretsch’s innovative and popular Renown57 drum set. Inspired by the great American car companies from the 1950’s, the Renown57 incorporates timeless, iconic car design elements into each drum. The “hood ornament” is the Renown Chevron, an aluminum triangular teardrop painted white with raised beveled chrome edges and embossed chrome Gretsch logo. Each drum has its own sized chevron, scaled to symmetrically fit that specific drum size.
Renown’s contemporary features make this a modern day classic. The Renown57 (RN57-E825-MCO) features North American rock maple shells and standard Renown specifications to produce punchy and full tones. Gretsch’s ball/socket double tom holder securely mounts toms to the bass drum. For a limited time, this kit includes a FREE matching Motor City Black throne from Gibraltar Hardware. Retail: $3010, sale price starting at $1957.
The epitome and legend of "That Great Gretsch Sound." The USA Custom series is hand-crafted every step of the way in our Ridgeland, SC factory by highly experienced and skilled drumsmiths. Our legendary Gretsch formula 6-ply shell is the cornerstone of our legendary sound. Shells are completed with 30-degree bearing edges, Silver Sealer, die-cast hoops and custom finishes - ingredients all combined to make a sound long recognized for its classic clear timbre, balanced tone and explosive projection. Custom design your Gretsch dream kit "a la cart" by choosing your desired drum sizes, colors and hardware options. The Gretsch legend continues.
The NEW Gretsch USA Custom Order Guide will explain the many options that are available to help you design a drum set that matches your individual voice as a drummer.
Carefully developed to produce tones that explode a balanced amount of warm low end frequencies
The Catalina Maple series starts with the Gretsch maple formula shell. We carefully developed the maple shell specification to produce tones that explode with attack and volume and project a balanced amount of warm, low-end frequencies. All Catalina Maple shells are 7-ply, 7.2mm.
The Catalina Maples are available in two configurations - a 6-piece shell pack set and a 5-piece shell pack set. Add-on drums are also available to allow for further drum set expansion.
