Re: Let's see your Gretsch kits (saved the best for last!)
Have been extending my original USA custom 12,13,16 & 22 kit, with 18" floor shell, rebuilt, and 14" rack.
The 14 was a concert Tom, and I bought the rims device, but struggled to find some one to do the bearing edge on the concert side and drill.
Luckily, I found someone had thought the same with a 14 rack, and was selling on eBay for cheap, so..... After my preamble, new Tom on its own, then in the tiny set up for backing a local singer-songwriter...
My latest set-up;
22 inch bass,
New 14x10 rack Tom with rims mount for floor Tom fun.
Renown Birdseye 14 x 5 snare
Converted 13inch rack Tom to snare at side
Sabian omni 22
Sabian HHX EVOLUTION 18 inch (keyholes, but still lovely)
Ps, does anyone want a 14 concert Tom, wrapped in black nitron? Or does anyone feel Taylor's influence will ignite the concert market???
Finally got a RB Gretsch - Dixieland
