Brooklyn Shell Pack  Oyster Grey

The Brooklyn series are founded on the classic Gretsch design, Brooklyn delivers vintage Gretsch tones that are full, punchy and warm. These classic tones are modified by the 6-ply North American maple/ poplar shells and "302" hoops. Innovative specs drive a new Gretsch tonal characteristic that is slightly more open and ambient. Brooklyn drums sound like classic Gretsch drums, but speak with their own sonic personality.   

All Brooklyn drums feature 6-ply North American maple/ poplar shells. Toms are .220" thick and snare and bass drums shells are .310" thick, slightly thicker than standard USA Custom shells. All shells have the proprietary Gretsch 30-degree bearing edge. Shell interiors are finished with classic Gretsch Silver Sealer. Each shell comes with a distinctive Brooklyn internal shell label that contains drum shell model number and serial number.                      

Brooklyn toms and snares come fitted on batter and resonant side with the new Gretsch "302" hoop. At 3mm thick and double-flanged, it is reminiscent of hoops used by Gretsch up until the mid 1950's. The 302 hoop has the same height profile as the classic Gretsch die-cast hoop to provide a playing experience that feels the same as traditional Gretsch USA Custom drums. All other drum hardware components - lugs, claws, brackets, spurs, etc - are the same that is used on Gretsch USA Custom.                      


Gretsch Brooklyn series metal snare drums add another professional and distinctive voice to the Gretsch snare line up. The straight-sided chrome over brass shell (with Gretsch center knurl pattern) is offered in two sizes, 5x14 (8 lug) and 6.5x14 (10 lug). Also offered is hammered chrome over brass shell in 6.5x14 (10 lug). All shells include Gretsch "302" 3mm/double-flanged hoops, Lightning throw off and butt plate, "Snap-in" drum key holder, 20-strand snare wire and Gretsch Permatone drum heads. The brass shells resonate with classic, musical tones and are extremely versatile. The "302" hoops provide a timbre that is more open and ambient than traditional
