By adding classically distinctive appointments and new high-performance features, the RN1 Renown Series is poised to continue the rich legacy of legendary Gretsch drum sets.
The concept of the Renown RN1 was to give the series fresh visual appeal and enhance sonic performance, while preserving its classic Gretsch vibe and spirit. Gretsch still uses the proven and unique Renown formula that combines North American Rock Maple with a slightly softer maple species. Each drum is expertly completed with smooth 30 degree bearing edges and Gretsch's exclusive Silver Sealer interior finish. Heavy-duty Gretsch die-cast hoops are fitted to all tom and snare shells and classic Gretsch lugs adorn each drum. This Gretsch-engineered shell/hoop combination produces explosive attack and power that is rich with warm, low-end timbre.
Renown's re-engineered GTS system represents a huge advance in tom suspension technology. Not only is the new design significantly lighter in weight and allows greater visibility of the shell, the new GTS does an even better job at maximizing resonance. The low-profile horizontal GTS bars grab the drum at four points for a stable, evenly-distributed fit.
The Renown has always been revered for its rock-solid craftsmanship and excellent sonic performance. To make tom mounting quicker and easier, the redesigned hinged GTS tom bracket/memory lock system is now lower in mass and features the classic easy-to-handle Gretsch "T-Wing" wing screw. The T-Wing screw design is also incorporated into the adjustable telescoping bass drum spurs, the floor tom brackets and the clam-shell ball-and-socket tom clamps, which are included with all Renown sets.
All Renown kits are equipped with Remo drum heads for powerful, penetrating tones. With this incredible combination of head, shell and hoop, the new Gretsch Renown sounds, feels and plays distinctively Gretsch.
