My drums arrived today and the surprise is that Fred Gretsch and Paul Cooper the Production Manager signed each of my drums. That was a very nice touch.
I only had time to unpack them so far. Here they are fresh out of the box next to my 125th Anniversary RB snare with the same finish. Like I said earlier...I asked if they could put round badges on these three drums. I was told they could not do that. Round Badge drums are a special production saved for Anniversary drums now. I really like the look of the Drop G badges too - classy I think.
