    Cool, but a 4 ply shell seems un-Gretschlike (should be 3 or 6 ply) and other than that the single flange hoops look to be the only thing that sets them apart...and again shouldn't they be die casts or at least double flanged (stick choppers)? I don't mean to knock the concept, still a cool drum, but likely to be pretty pricey, and I'd guess you could spec out a new vintage build USA Custom or Broadkaster snare for less money that would be closer to the real deal.

    Just my 2 cents...

    When Lang first started making the Gladstone repros they were using an incorrect plyed shell too. Always bugged me.
