GRETSCH USA DRUM SETS ORDERED.
ORDERED FOR STOCK 10/21/13: GRETSCH USA CUSTOM "PLAYBOY" CENTER LUG DESIGN
This recreation of the old Gretsch "Playboy" model has been tremendously successful for us. We have had kits in 12-14-18 as well as the "micro bop" 10-13-16 BD version. Wihtout fail buyers have grabbed these and raved about them. The fewer number of lugs really adds to the tonal center of the drum and the overall resonance. This is a fabulous set. Our most recent buy who purchased a micro bop 8x10, 13x13, 14x16 said that this set puts the Canopus Club Kit to shame, and those are nice sets.
