Gretsch Drums have recently launched its 2023 Limited-Edition Renown drum kit in celebration of the brand’s double platinum anniversary. These collectable drums are a variation of the standard Renown kit with a host of special upgrades and features.
The first Gretsch Renown model was released back in 1948 and “Renown” has remained a staple in the brand’s range ever since. This latest evolution, the LTD Renown, stays true to the many features of yesteryear, the clean lines, the looks and the sound that drummers expect from this Gretsch series, while also benefiting from the improvements of up-to-the-minute manufacture and craftsmanship.
New for the 2023 LTD Renown is a 7-ply Mahogany shell with a Vintage Marine Pearl inlay center stripe and a gloss lacquer finish to enhance and show off the wood grain. The mahogany shells have a resonant, vibrant sound with a smooth midrange and rich, warm low tones. The 4mm die-cast hoops further focus the tone of the drums whilst also enhancing their definition. The new kit retains the much loved 30-degree bearing edges, silver sealer, and Remo® drumheads.
The LTD Renown setup features a non-standard 22” x 14″ undrilled bass drum, 12” x 8″ rack tom, 16″ x 16” floor tom and a 14” x 7″ snare drum, plus an add-on 10” x 7″ rack tom will be available to order separately.
For the double platinum anniversary, this LTD Renown will only be in production throughout 2023.
