The Gretsch Company has grown to produce some of the world's greatest drums and guitars over the span of four generations since their introduction in 1883.
With its emphasis on hand-craftmanship and commitment to quality, Gretsch has pioneered new designs and manufacturing techniques, winning endorsements from some of the music industry's most respected artists such as: The Who, John Lennon, U2, Chet Atkins, Neil Young, Phil Collins and Elvis Presley.
Gretsch drum kits are built for everyone from beginners who want something stylish, to pros who need to get maximum value from their seventeen-hundred pounds. A particular favourites of ours is the American Fusion Gretsch drum kit with Sabian cymbals.
Alongside the wide range of standard Gretsch guitars we stock (solid or hollow body), they also produce an acclaimed collection of related instruments including bass guitars, banjos, mandolins and resonators. Their reissues of classic 1920s and 30s ukuleles are really something special!
As the lead singer of U2, one of the most popular and influential rock bands of the last 30 years, Bono is a figure adored and admired both within and outside of the music industry. As a rock star, his music with U2 has earned him legions of devoted fans across the world.
Bono's signature guitar is an "Irish Falcon". Gretsch decided to put Bono's custom-built Irish Falcon into production to satisfy the numerous requests for this exact instrument and to pay tribute to the artist and his musical genre.
