Default Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

A friend of mine who just turned 60 is having a "mid life crisis" and called to ask me what I would recommend for a new set of drums. I told him to get the Catalina Club Jazz kit by Gretsch just because SO many people are saying good things about them. I think he was going to snag a set of them on yesterday's Black Friday sale. I know a few clubs around town that bought them as house kits for drummers to use and they sounded like Gretsch drums to me so....

....but Gretsch has always had a very distinctive sound as far as drums go. I honestly can't tell the difference between the sound of Ludwig and Slingerland drums -vintage drums, I mean. I don't think I could pick out a Rogers sound, either....but Gretsch? Yep.
