- The Gretsch anniversary drums that Mike Johnston takes to Asia
Mike Johnston is taking the Gretsch 135th Anniversary drum set on tour throughout Asia in July 2018. This tour is because of Gretsch's 135th Anniversary in drum making that started in 1883. During the tour, Mike is visiting China, Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia. The limited drum kits, Mike's schedule and the initiative itself all look great.
The anniversary drum sets were designed by Gretsch master drum builder Paul Cooper. They have Broadkaster series shells with Exotic Ribbon Mahogany outer ply, finished in either Dark Emerald or Classic Mahogany.
