Check out the sound...

This Gretsch sounds amazing. We have gone for a real dead crusty vintage drum sound. Think Al Green and Al Jackson Junior drum sounds. The kit was recorded in a dead room with four mics set up around the kit. Mix them together and you can get a balance on

  • The Drum Kit - Gretsch 1960s Round Badge Soul Kit

    Gretsch drumkit small

    This vintage 1960’s Gretsch Name Band Kit was finished with a silver sparkle and consists of a 20” x 14” Kick drum, 13” x 9” Rack Tom and a 16” x 16” Floor Tom. The snares used were a combination of a Gretsch Renown Maple 14” x 6” snare with a Red Sparkle finish (c.2010) a Gretsch Renown maple 14” x 5” snare with a Black Oyster Swirl finish, a Ludwig Acrolite 14” x 5” (c.1970) and a Ludwig 400” 14” x 5” snare (c.1960). Cymbals were wonderful dark sounding Bosphorous New Orleans Hi Hats (2 x 16” Crashes), a 20” Ride and an 18” Crash. We have also included samples of the congas, tambourine and shaker.

    The Round Badge design was the first badge used on Gretsch drums going all the way back to 1883. The identifying badge was round with GRETSCH written across the top and DRUM MAKERS SINCE 1883 along the bottom. The Round Badge was attached to snare drums and bass drums using a standard brass grommet which also provided a vent-hole for the drum, but it was attached to tom-toms using a carpenter’s upholstery tack which therefore left those drums unvented. Final production of Gretsch drums with the Round Badge was in 1971. The 60s kits have become renowned for their sound. Loved by the Jazz fraternity with the smaller kick drums they have become a much sought after kit.
