This Gretsch USA Custom kit is new. It was bought new and never played, in pristine condition. The color is a beautiful black sparkle with black sparkle inlays on the maple bass drum hoops. The badge is the second generation Drop G badge which Gretsch re-introduced in 2004. Sizes are 24" x 16" bass, 9x13 and 16x 16 toms. Heads are new Gretsch Permatone made by Remo. We do have several Gretsch hi end snare drums available as separate purchases.
Here are the drums' features listed on the Gretsch site, "Gretsch’s USA Custom series is completely hand-crafted in Gretch’s Ridgeland, SC factory by highly experienced and skilled drum-smiths. The Gretsch formula 6 ply maple shell, 30° bearing edges, Silver Sealer, die-cast hoops and custom finishes all combine to make a classic sound, with clear timbre, balanced tone, and explosive projection.
