Gretsch drums were born in Brooklyn, New York in 1883. The Gretsch drum design team molded the Brooklyn series by combining classic Gretsch elements while invigorating it with new attributes. Proudly hand crafted in Ridgeland, South Carolina, USA, by a team of veteran drum builders, Gretsch Brooklyn has a sound that is at once recognizable and essential, yet distinctively reinvented.

NOTE: Cymbals, stands, snare drum , and pedals shown in the picture above are NOT included with this shell pack.

  • 7" x 10" tom
  • 8" x 12" tom
  • 14" x 16" floor tom

    classic GretschSilver Sealer.

The Sound
Rooted in classic Gretsch design, Brooklyn delivers vintage Gretsch tones that are full, punchy and warm. These classic tones are modified by the 6-ply North American maple/ poplar shells and "302" hoops. Innovative specs drive a new Gretsch tonal characteristic that is slightly more open and ambient. Brooklyn drums sound like classic Gretsch drums, but speak with their own sonic personality.

The Shells
All Brooklyn drums feature 6-ply North American maple/ poplar shells. Toms are .220" thick and snare and bass drums shells are .310" thick, slightly thicker than standard USA Custom shells. All shells have the proprietary Gretsch 30-degree bearing edge. Shell interiors are finished with classic Gretsch Silver Sealer. Each shell comes with a distinctive Brooklyn internal shell label that contains drum shell model number and serial number.

The Hardware
Brooklyn toms and snares come fitted on batter and resonant side with the new Gretsch "302" hoop. At 3mm thick and double-flanged, it is reminiscent of hoops used by Gretsch up until the mid 1950's. The 302 hoop has the same height profile as the classic Gretsch die-cast hoop to provide a playing experience that feels the same as traditional Gretsch USA Custom drums. All other drum hardware components - lugs, claws, brackets, spurs, etc - are the same that is used on Gretsch USA Custom.

The Badge
The return to Brooklyn means a return to a Round Badge. The Brooklyn Round Badge has a black/pewter color scheme with classic embossed Gretsch design.
