I just purchased my Gretsch Renown maple kit (in inca gold) its a 5pc. 22" kick 10", 12", and 14" toms. I love it! This is my favorite sounding kit. I left the Evans G2 heads that came with on the kit for about a month... i liked those heads but i much prefer the Evans EC2 coated heads.

I purchased the kit at Shaw Music in Fergus for $1899.99 and its worth every penny. I bought this kit because I, about a month before, bought the Gretsch catalina club and loved it! I did have a premier artist maple 6pc that i sold to buy the Gretsch... best move of my life!!

I love that these drums are really hard to pull out of tune! they stand up on and off the road and, if they even need it, are really easy to pull back up to pitch! the finish is sweet and I love the die-cast rims! and as far as duct tape (keep reading more reviews you'll find it) I've NEVER needed to use any!

there is nothing i don't like about this kit.

in one word... excellent!

This is an amazing kit for the price! if you get a chance to play one take it!
