Drum great Vinnie Colaiuta discovers Gretsch Factory Vineyard!

Story by UEC

While on a recent visit to the Gretsch Drum Factory, artist, endorser, Vinnie Colaiuta came across some neat, New Old Stock(NOS) of Gretsch Drums buried on the shelves way in the back of the warehouse. Being completely blown away by this incredible discovery, Vinnie continued to wander the factory floor and was heard to repeatedly mumble the words “it’s a VINEYARD, …a GRETSCH FACTORY VINEYARD!”

WOW, just discovered in the Vineyard…

an assortment of Gretsch USA made drum parts in real gold plate finish. These parts are all circa 1983…….almost 20 years old now. They are all ‘NOS’(new old stock) and may be showing some age. Perfect for the collector or the customizer who wants gold plated touches on their Gretsch or other brand drums. Available while supply lasts, first come first served basis. Order through your favorite Gretsch drum dealer.
