We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"I have always loved the sound of big 70s and 80s Gretsch drums. When I had enough money to buy my first drum kit I bought a new gretsch kit and was blown away with the sound in such an inexpensive drum kit. Since then I found a late 70s gretsch kit and have never looked back. Huge and awesome sounding."
