About the Rock Legends QuickPack

 

Inspired by features and style from Gretsch’s most prolific rock drummers, the Rock Legend 125th Anniversary drum set is a tribute to rock music’s 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 logos also adorn each of the "Black Dot" tom batter drum heads, the coated snare drum head and clear resonant heads. Both bass drum heads are clear and the classic Gretsch Drums logo is in offset position on the resonant 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 for 2008 production.

 

Features: 

- Gretsch-formula maple shells with 30-degree bearing edges and Silver Sealer interiors 

- Nitrocellulose Millennium Maple Gloss finish 

- Round Badges on all drums 

- 12" tom is mounted onto bass drum 

- Triple chrome-plated drum hardware 

- Vintage orange/white internal shell labels 

- Bass drum features Black 125th Anniversary shell logo, vintage T-rods
