New drun set day. I got my tax refund today and decided to stimulate the economy a little bit.<br /> <br /> I bought a brand new Gretsch Renown '57 5 pc kit in Motor City Black. I did an Amazon purchase using the FDP link. The kit was brand new and offered at $1089. These sold for $1957 when they were first released. List is over $3K. It was the last one I found at this price.<br /> <br /> It should be delivered to my office by the end of next week. Time to list my Pear Visions on CL.

The Renown series are great drums, I had a set would have never got rid of them but a good freind that was needing a kit made a fair offer so I took him up on it.

It never happened. No stock notification after about 24 hours.<br /> <br /> It was the old bait & switch from both sellers.
