Gretsch Drums History

The History Of Gretsch Drums

Gretsch Factory 104 South Fourth Street, Brooklyn. NY-In the Early Years

The Gretsch Company was responsible for many groundbreaking drum manufacturing techniques and technical innovations that have become the standard of modern-day drums. Just consider what drums would
be like today without:

  • The multi-ply drum shell
  • Lacquer (wood grain) finishes
  • Die-cast hoops
  • Smaller-sized bass drums
  • And of course the perfect sound

The soul of every Gretsch U.S.A drum, the six-ply Maple shell design has been around for the past five decades and is an exclusive feaure that will not be found on any other brand in the market today.
