Re: Let's see your Gretsch kits (saved the best for last!)
Wow! some nice kits Archie, Drumolator and of course Ron = I always love to see your drums. I've seen them elsewhere and I never can get enough of them. I too am a huge fan of the 50's Gretsch kits....early 60's too.
My late 50's Gretsch kit is all three ply EXCEPT the 14 floor tom. I would love to find a 14" 3ply FT - been looking but man...are they scarce! I think if I eventually do find one it may cost me more than what I paid for my complete kit including cymbals.
A very detailed catalog of your drums, cymbals and hardware Drumolator - nice.
