Your general opinion of this product.
Arrived in great shape, all but the large toms and kick drum were assembled. This is my first drum kit new and putting it together was easy. Tuning is a straightforward process if a bit slow because progress towards "tuned" is something one creeps up on.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
They are the mid-range drums that Gretsch produces but in recent years Gretsch has added some of the features of the more expensive models to the mid-range. Great quality with no blemishes or manufacturing odd spots.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Five lugs on the toms and the 30 degree edges make these guys the best I have ever owned.
How is the tone?
Once the drums are tuned they sing and resonate with great sustain. I tuned the large toms a fourth different from top to bottom and they bend beautifully.
The lacquer finish is awesome! I got the Dark Wine finish and turned the lights down a bit after assembly-the kit looks exquisite!
Was this item an overall good value?
A great value but not a steal...worth the money!
...Absolute great sound & pure maple
