Gretsch Renown Maple J483 ‘Be-Bop’ Shell Pack
Gretsch Renown Maple drum kits are designed for the touring drummer who requires “That Great Gretsch Sound“. The Renown Maple J483 shell pack is a ‘Be-Bop’ style setup with a smaller Bass drum at the heart of the set making it compact, punchy and easy to transport. It is ideal for Jazz/Be-Bop situations and really sings when tuned up in a traditional style…
The tones from these shells are so musical! What’s more, the Renown Maple J483 comes in a variety of finishes which will really enhance those retro visuals on stage.
In case you are not sure what a shell pack is, it is a set of drum shells without a Snare Drum and any other stands or pedals. All mounts, holders and legs are included but essentially, it is a ‘bare-bones’ configuration and normally a choice for experienced or professional players.
Gretsch Renown Maple J483 Components
- 1 x 12” x 8” Rack Tom with GTS mount
- 1 x 14” x 14” Floor Tom & legs

The Renown Maple series offers incredible tone by retaining classic features whilst projecting a warm, distinctively Gretsch sound, with an added contemporary punch. This latest release of Renown Maple drums comes with a change from Die-Cast hoops to the player-friendly ‘302’ hoops – the same hoops found on their Brooklyn and Broadkaster series drums. Their numerically named ‘302’ hoops produce a similar focused sound to Die-Cast hoops, but are lighter in weight and less rigid, allowing the drum to breath a little more to achieve its maximum resonance.
