    Re: 18" Gretsch Renown (Cherry Burst) kick?

    I finally got to use it live (in church)

    Wow! All Maple, warm, yet punchy, and incredibly big-sounding for an 18".

    I had a color-matched Gretsch Cat Club 18" I was using before. It is mahogany,...

    Re: From a bass player's perspective. . .

    Even if you hit just the root and the fifth, you can still lock into that kick drum and groove it. Some of the best bass lines aren't necessarily busy. But once again, drummers, LISTEN to what's...

    From a bass player's perspective. . .

    I've been drumming 35 yrs or so. In the last couple years or so, mainly in church, I've been playing bass.

    It gives you a totally different perspective on drumming to play bass with a drummer. I...

    Sticky: Re: Gretsch Drums Discussion

    It's been a while since I've been here.

    I managed to find a Renown Cherry Burst 18" Kick Drum on Ebay!

    That's NOT a misprint. 18" x 14". I'm pretty sure Gretsch only made two or three of...
  8. Re: Grrr... I don't like Stewart Copeland right now.

    Grew up playing with Police records. Copeland's stuff is brilliant, and it is a good drum lesson, but learning it is not impossible. Keep plugging away and you'll get it.

    About the only thing that...

    Re: Tama or Gretsch????

    You are getting a good price for a mid-level kit with decent cymbals included. If you think your daughter is dedicated enough to stick with this, don't go with cheap entry -level kits, because you...

    Re: tuning a Gretsch Jazz kit

    On my Gretsch 18", I use an Evans G-mad head on the kick side with no muffler ring. I use the stock coated white on the front that came with the kit. I burned a small port into the front head with a...

    Re: Timbale as a high tom?

    For a while in the late 70's -early 80's Alan White of Yes had a pair of timbales mounted to the left of his rack tom as high toms. Somebody already mentioned Larry Mullen Jr of U2. The drummer for...

    Re: Tama or Gretsch????

    Yeah, I used to play Tama, but switched to Gretsch, because they sound so much better. If you can avoid the Birch in favor of Catalina Maple, do that. Birch is a harsher, rock & roll sound, but maple...

    Re: New Drum Kit (Bass Drum) Question

    I play a little 18" and I am totally happy with it. Sound wise, the sound is punchy and controlled with fewer overtones. Volume is great, and if I need more, it mikes up great, and soundmen love the...
