We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"Throughout my time as a student and professional, I have been directly inspired by the most influential drummers in the history of Jazz. The majority of these artists exclusively performed and recorded on Gretsch Drums. Simply, Gretsch Drums have historically defined the sound quality, development, and vision of creative drumming for over 130 years: That Great Gretsch Sound!"

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Be yourself….develop your musical voice!"
