Gretsch Energy 20″ with hardware and 3 Piece Paiste 101 Cymbal Pack, start your drumming in style.

Gretsch Energy kits come with everything you need to get playing, including all stands and pedals and even a Paiste 101 cymbal set. Cymbals are often the weakest point on starter drum kits so knowing you are getting a quality set of cymbals from a company like Paiste does offer peace of mind and can often save you money in the long run as you are unlikely to ever wear through these well made cymbals.

Gretsch Energy drum kits now have even more of the features you would expect to find on a Gretsch kit and more of that famous Gretsch sound! With double braced hardware, 7 ply poplar shells with 30 degree bearing edges and Remo heads supplied as standard, Gretsch are not cutting corners when it comes to this kit.

This kit is in the ever popular black finish with Gretsch detailing on many of the chrome fittings which sets it apart from other kits in this price range. It features a 20″ bass drum which delivers a higher end punch than the alternative 22″ option and allows the toms to sit lower for shorter players.

The Hardware

Double braced hardware throughout provides stability and durability to give you complete confidence in your setup. Unlike many kits at this price range Energy Series kits come with everything you might need, including a stool and kick pedal.

The Cymbal Pack

The included Paiste 101 cymbal set is a real selling point of this kit. Virtually indestructible and with enough projection and cut to be heard this cymbal set won’t need replaced a couple months down the line.
