  • The Drum Kit - Modern Folk Rock Kit - The Drum Kit

    Gretsch was founded by Friedrich Gretsch, a German immigrant who opened his own musical instrument business based in Brooklyn, New York in 1883. His son, Fred Gretsch Sr., took over the business as a teenager and expanded the business. Fred Gretsch Sr. handed over the family business to his son, Fred Gretsch Jr., in 1942. Soon after taking over, Fred Jr. left to serve in the navy, leaving the business in the hands of his younger brother, William “Bill” Gretsch. Bill Gretsch died in 1948 and the company was again run by Fred Jr.

    Fred Gretsch Jr. ran the company until 1967 when Gretsch was sold to Baldwin Piano Co. In the early 1970s Baldwin moved drum production from Brooklyn, NY to a plant in DeQueen, Arkansas. In 1982, the company was bought by Charlie Roy in a deal with Baldwin United. In 1983 the company celebrated its 100th anniversary with a line of limited edition drums with a special finish and “centennial” badges signed by Mr. Roy. There were to be 100 Limited Edition kits manufactured and sold. No one is sure how many kits were actually built.

    In 1985, Gretsch was bought back by a member of the Gretsch family, Fred Gretsch III (the son of the late William “Bill” Gretsch, and nephew of Fred Jr.), who continues to own the company to this day

    This Gretsch kit is a 1980s Maple 4416 owned by Martyn Barker. It works well for the tracks we were recording on Volume 2 and contrasts well with the Vintage Ludwig Hollywood used on Volume 1.

    This Gretsch Kit consists of a 22” x 16” Kick drum, 10” x 7”, 12” x 9” and 13” x 10” Rack Toms and a 16” x 16” Floor Tom. The snares used were a combination of two Ludwig Snares. A Ludwig 400 14” x 5” and Martyn’s Ludwig Brass Shell 14” x 6.5”. Cymbals used were Zildjian Top Rock 14” Hi-hats, a 20” Rock Ride, an 18” Zildjian Paper Thin Crash and an 18” Plain Paiste Crash. On a number of tracks we have added shakers and tambourines. We used sticks, hotrods and brushes.
