(8th December 2020 – Ridgeland, South Carolina) – Gretsch Drums, introduce, for one year only, the Renown 57 - Silver Oyster Pearl; a new breed in the coveted drum series.

In January, 2011, Gretsch Drums went against the grain and conventional design when the company introduced the special edition Renown 57 drum set.

Despite not being manufactured for some years, Gretsch still receives regular order requests for these much loved, limited edition kits.

Only available in 2021, this versatile Renown kit features the 7-ply maple shell, 30 degree bearing edges, 302 double flange hoops, silver sealer interiors and Low Profile GTS system. The new Renown 57 has silver oyster inlay hoops and traditional 14” depth bass drums with no mounts, the most frequent request made by Gretsch enthusiasts.

The Renown 57, Silver Oyster Pearl Nitron finish, is available in two configurations:
RN2-J483V-SOP: 14x18 Bass Drum, 8x12 Rack Tom, 14x14 Floor Tom
