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.
That's pretty snazzy, and certainly makes sense. Thanks for the info.
Your 1958 kit is incredible!
