With thicker cuts than the industry standard, our Maple ply configuration is a refined version of the shell construction that put us on the map. The Gladstone series features 7 plies of North American Rock Maple, single-ended Deco Lug and Bread & Butter bearing edge.
The Bread and Butter bearing edge allows for a more open and resonant tone. It also promotes more body than what is typical of a modern maple shell, making for a very musical and versatile sound.
These drums are made 100% in-house at the Gladstone Factory from the same team who produce all C&C drums. This a total rock n roll drum set – an alternative option for the drummer who seeks added power and projection yet sensitivity and tone that only comes from a high-end handmade drum set. All this at working players price point.
