Gretsch Drums

We are incredibly excited to have the opportunity to hear and see the UK’s best young drummers playing Gretsch Drums.
It couldn’t be better; seeing someone at the start of their career on a drum set that is played by drummer legends, all in the setting of such a highly regarded competition
