Re: Let's see your Gretsch kits (saved the best for last!)
I was very lucky to have the first crack at these...18,12,12,14, 5.5. There's a center mounted rail with two holders. The toms don't have the diamond plate mount, it's oval shaped secured by two screws. All original heads except for the kick and snare batter.
However, two of the 12's were toast, so I took the bottom head off of one tom and used it for the batter side on the other. Unhit 60's Permatones that had never seen jazz tensioning judging from the cracking when I cranked them.
