Here is a short demo of the kit and the Gretsch snare.

I haven’t played the 8 lug drum. I bought the Gretsch after consulting with a few drummers that I trusted and I knew had played both the original Tama BB and the Gretsch USA.
I have to admit that this drum sounds absolutely wonderful. Ghost notes are crystal clear. Drum is warm and has body and presence like no other drum I have ever played. No volume threshold and cross-stick is clear and bright. Simply an outstanding drum.

I can't believe how BIG that bass drum sounds! I'll bet you're thrilled with that.

OK man, you know the rules... you dont post that quality of a video without filling out the "Geek Sheet"!

A) Heads all around including both kicks.. that thing sounds GREAT!

B ) Cymbals - a perfect blend of texture and shimmer! What are they?

C) Recording device? I see no mics but hear a great drum room mix... recorded on what?

D) If I give you money, can you make me play that well? Wonderful touch and groove!
