Default Value of my drums???

I have a vintage set of Gretsch drums with the Stop Sign #1 stamp. The color is gold satin flame, for the tom, floor tom, and bass. The snare is a power snare with same stamp. Model and serial numbers are as follows
Tom- model 4415 serial 00824
Floor tom- model 4418 serial 00820
bass- model 4249 serial 00801
snare does not have model or serial.

the condition on a scale from 1-10 is roughly a 7 or 8. Only minor scratches on the wraps, with one cut on tom. The kit is still playable, its what I learned to play on. If anyone can help, I sure would appreciate it. Thanks

jared

Sizes? Now is probably the worst time, in 20 years to try to sell drums. Great time to buy, however. Look on eBay. There's a few "round badge" kits, up on auction, $2.4K. No one's biting. 1'st stop sign was 1971 (?), I'd ballpark a price of $800-1000.

You measure the drum shell, not the hoops or rims. I always put diameter and then depth. Some people flip the #'s. 12x8 is a standard size. Your kick drum, they didn't do (still don't) a 21, so it's probably either a 20x14, or a 22x14 (and you measured the drum hoop). And the floor tom, 16x16 would be a standard size.

although the sizes are fairly standard, the satin flame finish would set it apart from most other Gretsch on the market!! (provided they are in a good nick)

ok, thanks for the help. the small tom has only one small nick or cut in the wrap. all the others are in near perfect condition. So with the gold satin flame color being rare, does this increase the value? Also I have vintage zildjan cymbals, a 22'' ride and 18'' crash and also a vintae paste high hat with the different size top and bottom (12'' and 14'' respectfully)does this increase the value? I also have all the original hardware to set up everything. thanks again
