Renown Series Drums with Stylish Retro Car Color Finish
As a tribute to the booming American automobile industry of the 1950s, Gretsch Renown 57 drum kits are decked out in a selection of gorgeous classic car colors that defined the era. On top of that, they feature an eye-catching, vintage chevron logo that will transport you back to the days of sock hops, soda fountains, and the birth of rock ’n’ roll. Like all Gretsch Renown series drums, the Renown 57 kit boasts 7-ply maple shells with 30° bearing edges for a warm, balanced tone that is appropriate for a variety of styles and genres. And drummers at Drummersuperstore enjoy the Renown 57’s Gretsch 302 hoops, which have the characteristic power and resonance of die-cast hoops with the openness of triple-flanged hoops.
Gretsch knows that working drummers like you need a kit that can handle an array of styles, and that's exactly what the Renown Series is crafted for. The design allows a balance of nuance and sensitivity along with a healthy dose of power and punch. Whether you're searching for the mellow tones of a vintage kit, the strong beats that fueled '50s and '60s rock 'n' roll, or today's clean and clear studio sound, you'll access them all with Gretsch Renown Series shells.
Gretsch Renown Series shells achieve wide-ranging versatility by way of their 7-ply maple shells. Maple delivers a tone that features just the right amount of cut, warmth, and volume, while never sounding overpowering. The Renown Series shells also feature a 30° bearing edge. By using a slightly shallower bearing edge, the shells are imparted with a softer attack and a bit more warmth. Also, Gretsch's famous Silver Sealer interior adds some snap that makes the Renown Series stand out even more.
Featuring Gretsch's 302 hoops
While the Gretsch Renown Series shells remain true to their original design, their hoops are even better. You'll find these drum shells ring with added resonance and power, thanks to their 302 hoops. These hoops emit the same basic character as die-cast hoops, but they are lighter and less rigid. This allows the shells to move and breathe with more freedom. You'll love how clearly you hear the "Great Gretsch Sound" with more of an open and organic tone than ever before.
