We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"I play Gretsch drums because I love the sound, particularly the unique defined attack combined with resonance that I hear when I play Gretsch drums. There is nothing like it. I also associate that sound with many drummers I have enjoyed and been influenced by, such as Tony Williams and Elvin Jones."
