Sorry - I was out of town for a week - Yes, it's a drum-key holder and I do like the feature.
I remember the 'key-holder' being on the first Gretsch kit I bought new in 1969.. Sold that kit in 76. The good thing that came out of selling it was that I probabley would never have bought my 58 Gretsch kit last year if I never sold them. And........as far as I'm concerned the 58 3ply drums and finish are much nicer than the 69 kit.
