This beautiful green satin Gretsch Brooklyn set is new. It has no stick or pedal marks on the original Gretsch branded Remo coated ambassador heads and there are no scratches or defects of any kind. Because it's been out of the store for several years and sitting in boxes, we are selling it at a used price. The "bebop" sizes are 16x18, 8x12 and 14x14, 5.5 x 14 snare. The 16x18 bass drum size is rare since Gretsch no longer lists it in their catalog. The bass drum hoops are clear satin over maple wood finish. There is not a tom holder with this kit, but there is a bass drum mount for a tom holder. These are great sounding drums ( we tapped them with a soft mallet). We also have a new Brooklyn chrome over steel 6.5 x 14 drum for sale.
Here is the description of the Brooklyn model drums from the Gretsch web site: "Brooklyn, New York and Gretsch Drums share an inseparable legacy that is reflected in the Gretsch Brooklyn Series. Proudly hand-crafted in Gretsch’s Ridgeland, SC, USA factory, Gretsch Brooklyn produces a sound that is immediately recognizable, yet distinctively reinvented. Brooklyn drums feature 6-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 1950’s. 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."
