In 2011, Gretsch introduced the special-edition Renown 57 drumset, which had a unique look borrowed from classic car colors and the chevron logo. Ten years later, the company revived the series for a limited run of drumsets and snares featuring 7-ply maple shells, 30-degree bearing edges, 302 double-flange hoops, silver sealer interiors, and a low-profile GTS tom suspension system. The finish for this Renown 57 is a silver oyster pearl. The bass drum has matching inlay hoops and a traditional 14” depth with no mount.
The kit is available in two configurations. The RN2-J483V-SOP includes a 14x18 bass drum, 8x12 tom, and 14x14 floor tom. The RN2-E425V-SOP has a 14x22 bass drum, 8x10 and 8x12 toms, a 16x16 floor tom, and a 6.5x14 snare.
