Gretsch's Marquee Series delivers that great Gretsch sound at a reasonable price that is sure to compliments any drummers budget.

The Marquee series delivers warm, explosive, open tones at an unbelievably affordable price. The key component to the Marquee's stellar sound is it's 7-ply shells which feature a blend of North American maple with a slightly softer maple. They feature Gretch's classic 30-degree round over bearing edges and feature 2.3mm triple flanged hoops. Now I know what you're thinking, "But Gretsch drums usually feature Die-Cast hoops?!" That is true, but the triple-flange hoops really help bring these drums to life. The lighter hoops allow them to breathe freely, creating a truer tone with improved resonance. The shell exteriors are finished in a satin poly-finish that allows the wood grain to show through, and is absolutely gorgeous. The interiors are hand sanded and finished in a hand-applied tint that seals the interior shell and adds a rich, distinctive appearance. The sizes of these drums are

  • 18" x 22" Bass Drum
  • 7" x 10" Tom
  • 8" x 12" Tom
  • 14" x 16" Floor Tom
  • Free 7" x 8" Tom

One really cool thing about these drums is that they feature a completely redesign badge that's exclusive to this kit. The Round badge is a nod to Gretsch's rich history while still looking towards it's bright and promising future. Being that this is a virgin bass drum, this kit comes with three toms clamps that will allow you to set up as you see fit. As if all of this wasn't enough, this kit also comes equipped with Remo heads for the best possible sound right out of the box.

    this drum set has it all, loud overtones, warm, and very versatile. the Marquee series offers any live pro performing drummer the unique sound you have been looking for. choose your favorite heads tune them and go to work, the color is awesome and looks fantastic underneath stage lights. its a 7ply and a little heavy but to me that just adds quality.
