Default Re: Let's see your Gretsch kits (saved the best for last!)

Rub-a-dub-dub. Catalina Club :) Congrats to everyone on this thread. You all have such beautiful drums!! Just got these last weekend. Copper Sparkle CCJ. I've replaced all the batters w/Remo Skyntone heads, but kept the Gretsch stock resos on the toms for now. I also put a Hazy Diplomat and PureSound snare strand on the snare. Tuned it up and the snare is now actually one of the best I've ever played on ... what a big difference with new heads and snares!! Everything sounds warm and vintage. I play instrumental surf, rockabilly and early 50s rock n' roll. Vintage 60s Zildjians. Enjoy!!
