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

While it's not exactly the best - it is very special to me.

My Gretsch Birthyear drum all cleaned up. I didn't restore it because I didn't want to fool with the badge.

It sounds kind of like a "Gong" drum with the snares off. I can't quite get it to sound good with the snares on. Probably a combination of old snares, old wood rims, the single tension tuning and a number of other small adjustments here and there. I'm very happy with it though and it doesn't look too bad..................
