Gretsch Brooklyn ‘Downbeat’ Nitron Silver Sparkle Shell-Pack
Special Agent ‘Q4’ informs us that there are a limited quantity of Gretsch Brooklyn shell-packs in stock at Gretsch’s European distribution centre, with a handful more coming in on a slow boat…
This is one is available immediately, a ‘Downbeat’ style version, for the tasteful R&B dudes who appreciate the sound of Muscle Shoals, Motown and the JBs. A great studio sized kit, this one is finished in Gretsch’s Nitron Silver Sparkle wood finish.
In case you are not sure what a shell-pack is, it is a set of drum shells without a Snare Drum or any other stands or pedals. All mounts and legs are included but essentially, it is a ‘bare-bones’ configuration and normally a choice for experienced or professional players.
‘Downbeat’ Shell-Pack Components
- 1 x 12” x 8” Rack Tom with GTS mount (but no Tom holder)
- 1 x 14” x 14” Floor Tom & legs
- 1 x 20” x 14” Bass Drum – undrilled
That’s what you get in the box – nothing more!
Gretsch Brooklyn Background Information
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.
