Brad Wilk of RATM used Gretsch Kits not a Premier Signia Marquis maple.


"Wilk is a Gretsch man. An official endorser since the beginnings of Audioslave, but the unofficial attachment goes back much further.

“The reason why I like Gretsch so much maybe,” he ponders, “is it was my first kit in high school that I actually had to make down payments for. It took me six months to pay it off before I could get it. So it really made me appreciative. You have no idea, I would go [to the music store] every week and look at the kit, and I knew that they sounded great. So when I was done with the payments in six months, and I could actually pick it up, I just had a great appreciation for it. They just always sounded great. All the recordings I’ve ever done have been with Gretsch drums. I rented from Drum Doctors or whatever. When I was first in Rage Against The Machine I was using Pork Pie, but even so, when I was in the studio for the first Rage record, the drums I was picking were Gretsch. Gretsch with the Tama Bell Brass snare.”

Premier Signia (maple) and Genista (birch) were their top of the line kits in the 90’s and were amazing kits. My main studio kit is a Premier Signia. Bass drum sounds huge and the toms record great as well. The Signia maple snares sound good too, but one of my secret weapons is the brass snare they made with the Signia lugs/throw. That thing cuts on rock tracks.
