Gretsch 125th Anniversary Shell Set

Gretsch 125th Anniversary Shell Set

In 2008 Gretsch created the Rock Legend Gretsch USA Custom drum set as part of their 125th anniversary offerings. This was a limited edition of 125 kits and the bass drum has the 125th anniversary logo affixed to the bass drum shell.

This particular set is in good condition, used as part of our hire stock the shells have been used by a number of our clients for predominently recording sessions. There are a few small small cosmetic knocks but really nothing of any significance.

If you ordered these same sizes and same finish today, the set would sell for around 4.5K at RRP
