Gretsch Drums Renown ’57 3-Piece Shell Pack (18,12,14) – Silver Oyster Pearl




Renown ’57

New for 2021
In January, 2011, Gretsch went against the grain and conventional design by introducing Renown 57. The unique look thanks to its classic car colors and the Chevron logo immediately became a hit throughout the world.

In response to the many requests, for only one year Gretsch is introducing a new breed in the coveted series: Renown 57 – Silver Oyster Pearl. The basis of the kit’s formula mimic’s today’s RN2 by adapting the 7-ply maple shell, 30 degree bearing edges, 302 hoops, silver sealer interiors, and Low Profile GTS system.

Today’s RN57 have bass drums with no mounts and traditional 14″ depths, just what Gretsch enthusiasts often ask for. Both configurations are offered in Silver Oyster Pearl Nitron.

Gretsch is an American company that manufactures musical instruments. The company was founded in 1883 in Brooklyn, New York by Friedrich Gretsch, a 27-year-old German immigrant, shortly after his arrival to the United States. Friedrich Gretsch manufactured banjos, tambourines, and drums until his death in 1895.

In 1916, his son, Fred Gretsch Sr. moved operations to a larger facility where Gretsch went on to become a prominent manufacturer of American musical instruments.

Most modern-era Gretsch guitars are manufactured in the Far East, though American-made “Custom Shop” models are available. In 2002, Gretsch entered a business agreement with Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC). Under the terms of that agreement Fred W. Gretsch would retain ownership while FMIC would handle most of the development, distribution and sales.

Through the years, Gretsch has manufactured a wide range of instruments, though they currently focus on electric, acoustic and resonator guitars, basses, ukuleles, and drums.
