This is a limited offer from Gretsch in commemoration of Fred Gretsch's 50 years in the musical instrument industry. This is a special drum with a limited distribution of only 100 drums worldwide.
The drum is a 7 x 14" with a special 4 ply shell that is maple/poplar/maple/maple with reverse roundover bearing edges, double flanged 302 hoops and a Microsensitive strainer. All done in a beautiful whitewash finish.
Each drum has a nameplate similar to what Gretsch used for the 50's era Max Roach snares. The nameplate on these drums is engraved "FredKaster 65 Model". The "Kaster" portion harkens back to the 50's era Broadkaster series and the reference to "65" refers to Fred's first year in the business.
The drum also comes with a beautiful presentation case made of wood, and a certificate of authenticity.
