Two new lacquer finishes, Satin White and Gloss Natural, are now options alongside the existing Satin Black and Cherry Burst lacquer finishes. Two new wrap finishes, Silver Oyster Pearl and Blue Metallic are also available for the first time.

Gretsch Renown series drums are available now from Authorized Gretsch Drums Retailers.

“The Gretsch Renown series has earned a reputation as a solid drum set that delivers professional sound,” said John Palmer, Director of Product for Gretsch Drums. “The new Renown series builds on an established sonic platform with updated specs, right down to the wing nuts that will provide established drummers with even more value and performance from their drum set.”
