"I fell in love with Gretsch drums in high school, mainly because of one specific kit my teacher eventually loaned me to use on the road. In the beginning years of playing with Sturgill, I didn’t exactly have a kit up to par for touring, that I thought could produce the sound I needed. My teacher Matt Skaggs loaned me his red 70’s maple Grestch kit for over a year. It was taken all over the country and appeared on national television on the Late Show with David Letterman. To this DAY, I havent been more in love with a sound of a drum kit. It was perfect. That kit sang every night and was perfect form my kind of playing. Since then, I’ve specifically searched for Gretsch drums with that sound, and it isn’t hard to find. I learned that was just the sound of Gretsch drums."
