Steve’s notes: Exclusive for Maxwell drums with Gretsch! We have exclusive use of white satin flame with Gretsch, and we are doing a run of Elvin Jones tribute sets. Elvin had an 12/14/18/5.5 in this finish and there are several pics of him with the set, including the cover of the historic album “Dear John C”.

All sets will be vintage build, thanks to the fact that I found a small stash of my reproduction rail consolette tom holders! (Good news: more are arriving in the Fall, so stay tuned).

These sets are available as 8x12, 14x14, 14x18, 5.5x14 or as 8x12, 14x14, 14x20, 5.5x14. Same price. Each set will be complete vintage build as follows:

8x12: two tone controls and 9.5mm vintage bracket mounted to shell for tom holder.

14x14: two tone controls, 9.5mm vintage tom leg brackets with your choice of our 100% correct repro legs as shown, or the standard Gretsch 9.5mm flared/angled leg.

14x18 or 14x20: Vintage spurs, gloss black hoops with matching inlay, T rods, Maxwell rail consolette tom holder, tone control on BD batter side.

5.5x14 snare drum. 10 lugs, Microsensitive strainer and butt plate, snap-in key holder, batter side tone control.

A 100% perfect 60s look and That Great Gretech Sound! Pre-order now!! Only 6 kits available to order until my new shipment of rail mounts arrives in the Fall.

Here's Gretsch's info on the USA Custom line:

"At the heart of each drum is the legendary 6-ply Gretsch-formula maple/gum shell with its expertly formed 30-degree bearing edge, the exclusive "Silver Sealer” interior finish and rugged die cast hoops. The custom drum building team in Ridgeland, South Carolina uses time-tested, classic finishing techniques such as hand-rubbed stains and nitro-cellulose lacquers. Gretsch’s nitron-finishes are some of the world’s finest, offering additional durability and legendary styling. Gretsch takes pride in knowing that USA Custom owners can sit down every day and literally play the kit of their dreams."
