Gretsch Brooklyn kits finally available
Distributor GEWA is reporting that Gretsch Drums’ Brooklyn Series is finally available in Europe.
Hand-crafted in Gretsch’s Ridgeland, SC, USA factory, Gretsch Brooklyn produces a sound that is immediately recognizable, yet distinctively reinvented, GEWA says. Brooklyn drums feature six-ply North American maple/poplar shells and are made slightly thicker than Gretsch’s USA Custom Drums and have a 30-degree bearing edge. Shell interiors are finished with classic Gretsch Silver Sealer.
Each shell comes with a distinctive Brooklyn internal shell label that identifies the drum shell model number and serial number. Brooklyn toms and snares feature the distinctive Gretsch “302” hoop. Its 3mm thick and double-flanged and is reminiscent of hoops used by Gretsch until the mid-1950s. Brooklyn delivers classic Gretsch tones that are full, punchy and warm.
‘Brooklyn’s innovative specifications created a new Gretsch tonal characteristic that is slightly more open and satisfyingly ambient. There is no denying that Brooklyn drums possess the sound of classic Gretsch drums, but deliver their own sonic personality,’ GEWA says.
