Gretsch

Gretsch has just announced the introduction of the new Vinnie Colaiuta “VS” Custom Kit featuring a “Vinnie Whitewash” high-gloss lacquer finish with black finish die cast lugs and hoops.

Basic configuration includes bass, mounted toms, floor toms, and snare, and each drum comes in a variety of sizes making the kit customizable for style and tone (price varies according to configuration).
