That drum in my avatar is just a picture I found online. Just liked the nostalgia of the piece.

When I was looking for some info on my new 1949 Gretsch Parade drum I found an interesting add for a drum just like the one in your Avitar. William F. Ludwig III was selling a completely restored Eagle drum made during the Civil War. The price......$18,000usd ! There was a nice long history letter to accompany the drum. It was a beauty! It's a good thing I'm not rich instead of so good looking - haha - I'd be buying drums left and right. Not to be greedy...........but I just like drums - all kinds. I think the history of some of them is so intersting.

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..................

Kona that looks great. Great collectors piece. I wouldn't touch the finish. It has some shine...just keep it dusted and keep smiling.

Alright, I got a couple new additions since the last time I posted pics. And since I'm a big nerd and like to take photos of my kit I'm going to repost.


-

-

-


Drums:
Gretsch Catalina Club Mod

Cymbals:
Paiste Twenty 14" hihats
Paiste Twenty 16" crash *new*
Paiste Traditional Medium Heavy 20" ride
Wuhan 18" *new*

Hardware:
Mix of DW, Tama, Premier, Yamaha, SP

I'm about one cymbal away from being more complete than ever. That would be an 18" or 19" crash of some sort. Haven't decided which one yet.

Cool the Gretsch thread!

Below is my baby!

BD: 20"
Rack Toms: 8",10",12",15"
Floor toms: 16",18"


The Replica of Phil Collins custom concert toms black Gretsch! It looks awesome and sounds even better...just like Phil's, barkin toms and all...

As you can see I am mainly right handed, so set up the kit on right side. I am training myself to be able to play either left or right handed though.

These pics were quicly taken rehearsal studio, but I'll take new pics soon with more detail. In the meantime, enjoy!

I also have more cymbals, but did not set them all up that day.

I just bought a Renown with the Autumn Burst finish. I am so excited - I've heard such phenomenal things about the Renowns and Gretsch in general & I'm psyched to finally have one - I'll post some pics as soon as I figure out how to add 'em...

Very nice Phildas, we need some better photos though! (also see my final comment below!)

Greenie, I have the same kit / colour combo as you - It's awsome!
Looking forward to seeing you set up.

You know, I don't think I ever posted my two Gretsch kits in here?

The Renown Maple Autumn Burst 'a' kit





The Catalina Ash Deep Red 'e' kit (although the set up now mirrors the Renown)





Phildas may spot something else of great interest to him in the last photo....

Well spotted - I have a few of their flight cases.

I toured with Genesis in the early 80's and the cases bring back many happy memories!

Looking forward to your photos.

Cuban, were you a roadie/tech?

Hey you don't fancy selling me one of these G flight cases? The smallest, puniest one you have? You would make a fellow drummer and Genesis devotee immensly happy! :D

I helped the crew out back then and became good friends with PC for a while (sadly lost contact though.)

I still have friends on the G crew, but was always away during the 2007 tour rehearsals and had to bow out of the final night in LA as my work in San Francisco made it difficult to get down there, so I only saw London.

I did sell one of my 4 cases a few years ago (one of Daryl's Genesis cases) but sorry to tell you that I'll not be selling these three cases.

Sorry!

The videos were of you doing the Phil's Drum Duet part (at home?) when you first got the PC kit.

Very envious of your kit. My last 'a' kit before I quit in 1985 was based on PC's kit and was a Premier made to order, with a 14x8 Gretsch Snare (still have the snare)

Keep in touch!

Anyone know what a Evans Clear Hydrulic over a Evans Clear G1 sounds like on the 12" Catalina Club tom because i really need to replace my heads on my 12" Cat Club Jazz tom.

btw i'll put pics up whenever i get aroud to taking them since my kit is in my badly lighted and acoustically horrible basement.

honestly, i dont like them. when i began to play i didn't think about tone and tuning. i muffeled every thing and put tape on my heads. today i like more open drums.in retrospect i would not buy them. the sound is very short. if people like this sound (eg metaldrummers) they can buy them. but before i play on stage with this kit i'll change them. can you give me any tips wich heads are well?

I bought a set of Remo Emperors for my cat map kit last week.
I use the stock resos.
You have to tune them carefully, and then they have a nice open sound.
I only can't tune the 14" floor properly, so that needs still some time :)

I pieced this set together from eBay. The BD is 20" and is a "round" badge (woot). The tom and FT are early 70s hex badges.

The snare is a new Ludwig Black Beauty.

an emperor isn't a pinstripe :D

I use coated Evans G1's over clear G1's on my Cats. the sound is amazing. Warm, open with just enough resonance. I was using G2 batters but found that they really killed the resonance of the shells.

sry Bram misunderstood you. i thought you said pinstripes and emperors are the same^^

i play many styles. basically "soft" rock, fusion, funk. i bought the pinstrimes because people said the are robust.

i realy think i'll buy a set of single ply heads. G1s are single plyed aren't they? are they better than ambassadors?

what is the differerence sounding between a coated and a clear head?

Just picked these up off Ebay. They were supposed to be from the 1980's, but the seller was mislead by the person he bought them from originally. They're actually from about 96-97 based on the 55xxx serial number (something in the 80's after 1983 would be lower 5 digits, before 1983 would be 6 digits).

But regardless, it's my holy grail dream kit..I've been looking for this kit for years. It might be a later kit than I thought but it still has Jasper shells which Gretsch no longer uses except in limited runs every now and then from their stockpile.

14x20
8x12
14x14
Pearl Sensitone Aluminum 5x14. I have a 6.5x14 Vaughncraft Curly Movingui (pictured) coming on Monday as well

All the drums (except the snare) have internal tone controls, but I'm only using the Pratt muffler on the bass and very sparingly using the tone control on the floor tom to help it balance more with the tom.

Cymbals are Bosphorus, 13" Masters Hats, 18" Traditonal Med-Thin Crash, 20" Traditional Med-Thin Ride

DW Flat Base Cymbal & Snare Stands with DW Boom/Clamp, one of the new Yamaha Belt Drive Pedals (forget the model), and a Yamaha 750 Series Hi-hat.

Coated Ambassadors on the toms and bass batter, Fiberskyns on the snare batter and bass reso, Renaissance Ambassador on snare side.

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.

Thanks man... Truth be told, I was actually after Rustic Pearl.. but they didn't have it in stock, and offered me a deal on what they did have... natural Satin. Couldn't pass it up.

I have looked at the Rustic Pearl and the natural for a long time and either in my book is a winner. If I could get a decent deal on my Renowns I would buy one of those real quick.

Alright, so I finally got off my ass and took pics of my Renowns. Here you go!

Cuban, your set-up looks a helluva lot cooler than mine... nice work.
