Gretsch Brooklyn Special Finishes

We LOVE all of the USA-made Gretsch product, and the Brooklyn series is no exception. This great series is 100% USA built and represents an incredible value. These Brooklyn kits sell for 25% less than the USA Custom series ($2279 MAP versus $3059 MAP for USA Custom). This is due to the fact that the Brooklyn series has more limited sizes and options. But now, we can get you a Brooklyn series kit in our exclusive Espresso Burst and Mardi Gras finishes! See what we have coming in below. Pre-order now. Contact Steve at vintagedrums@aol.com. Also, down further below is text from the Gretsch website discussing these great USA-made drums, and also two pics showing these finishes:

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.
