Now, with one drum set, you can play with the sensitivity and touch to handle the smoothest grooves of the 1950s, the attack and projection required to drive the most powerful compositions of the 60s and 70s, and the clarity and vibrance needed to faithfully reproduce the clean studio sounds of the 80s, 90s and beyond.
Renown still features the classic 7-ply Gretsch formula maple shells, with 30-degree bearing edges and exclusive "Silver Sealer" interiors. But this Renown comes with a new twist with the addition of the Gretsch's player-friendly "302" hoop - the same hoop used on Gretsch's Brooklyn and Broadkaster series drums. Gretsch 302 hoops produce the desirable focused sound like that of a die cast hoop, but are lighter in weight and less rigid, allowing the drum to better "breath" and achieve maximum resonance.
The RN2 Renown delivers the traditional Gretsch sound with an incredible open, harmonic tone that supplies the versatility needed to meet the demands of the hardest working drummers. Renown looks as good as ever, with numerous appointments that are traditionally Gretsch, including a lightweight, off-the-shell mounting system, distinctively styled lugs, brackets, memory locks and bass drum spurs and the classic "T-Wing" screw.
The RN2 Renown comes in a variety of popular configurations and finishes. Individual toms, snare drums and bass drums are also available.
