From Gretsch on their Brooklyn series:

“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 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.”

With their name taken from their home city, Gretsch Brooklyn drums symbolically represent the historical relationship between Gretsch drums and the Brooklyn backdrop that was the Gretsch factory home for so many years.

Now made in South Carolina by a team of veteran drum builders, Gretsch Brooklyn drums have a sound that is instantly recognisable, yet subtly reinvented for the requirements of modern players. Expanding on traditional drum designs, the Gretsch craftsmen have worked to shape a sound that retains the fundamental Gretsch characteristics, while projecting a fresh voice.
