Gretsch Energy Drum Kits

Based in South Carolina, Gretsch drums is one of the most iconic drums brands in the world. With everyone from Charlie Watts to Matt Sorum, having spent their careers behind a Gretsch, the 130 year old company has developed a reputation as one of the greatest, and the only purveyor of “That Gretsch Sound”.

Recently, Gretsch unveiled their range of Energy drumkits. Bringing their iconic sound and style to a more affordable price point is priority number one. Each kit is paired with a full set of hardware as well as a Meinl HCS cymbal pack, making these a one stop shop to climb aboard the drumming train with Gretsch.

The Features That Matter

The Gretsch Energy shells are 7-ply poplar with 30-degree bearing edges and are equipped with 1.6mm triple flanged hoops. This is the primary source of that revered Gretsch sound.

Each Energy kit includes a bass drum pedal, high-hat stand, snare stand with both a boom and straight cymbal stand.

A full set of Meinl HCS cymbals are included, featuring a 20″ Ride, 14″ hihats, and a 16″ crash rounds out the full package that is the Gretsch Energy Drumkit.
