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

Well - it's not part of my Gretsch kit ..........yet, but....

I just got this in the mail today (bought it on eBay a few days ago).

It's in great shape for a 60 year old drum - better than me - lol
I'm surprised at how light it is..a few pounds.

I will have to be very carefull cleaning this 1949 Gretsch Renown Mahogany Parade drum - I don't want it to fall apart on me.



Here it's resting beside some 23 yr old coke (I drank all the 60 yr old stuff last week). Steve Gadd & Carl Palmer autographed drumsticks for some inspiration. I ripped through some rudiments and it sounds not too bad.
