Gretsch USA Rock Legend 125th Drum Set with extra tom 2008 Maple Gloss Lacquer image

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


In 2008 Gretsch created the Rock Legend Gretsch USA Custom drum set as part of their 125th anniversary offerings. This was a limited edition of 125 kits and the bass drum has the 125th anniversary logo affixed to the bass drum shell. This particular set is in superb condition and at some point the original owner added a specially ordered extra drum, the 8x10 tom. As a result, this kit now has 8x10, 8x12, 14x14, 16x16, 16x22, 6.5x14 in gloss maple lacquer. The set has seen VERY little playing time. If you ordered these same sizes and same finish today, the set would sell for $5700.

Read the 2008 promotional literature from Gretsch below:

Inspired by features and style from Gretsch's most prolific rock drummers, the Gretsch Rock Legend 125th Anniversary drum set is a tribute to rock musics legendary players. The Rock Legend set features classic 6-ply USA Custom drums “ the same Gretsch shell formula that was used back when rock music was developing and defining a culture all its own. Other classic features include vintage rock sizes, mounted tom, Gretsch Round Badge and Millennium Maple finish. To celebrate Gretsch's 125th anniversary, other subtle appointments have been included.

A handsome black Gretsch 125th Anniversary logo is affixed directly onto the bass drum shell, underneath the lacquer. The 125th Anniversary logos also adorn each of the clear Black Dot� tom batter drumheads, the coated snare drum head and clear resonant heads. Bass drum batter and resonant heads are clear and the classic Gretsch Drums logo is in offset position on the resonant bass head. Unique, serialized orange/white vintage internal shell labels have been applied to each shell to give each drum an identity of its own. The Rock Legend kit was limited to 125 total kits in the 2008 production.
