NAMM 2012: If you want to get people's attention, give 'em something shiny to look at, right? Gretsch proved this theory true with their massive custom drum kit, done up in a stunning chrome nitron finish.

After they were done "oohing" and "ahhing," NAMM attendees then turned their attention to another fab-looking set, the all-new Brooklyn drum line, which celebrates Gretsch's New York roots. Company man John Palmer walked us through both kits.
