I just acquired this 1950 Gretsch Bop Kit

I think that the Pratt muffler was an option that was either factory or dealer installed.
I had a 70's Gretsch kit for decades and I never once used a bottom head tom muffler.
I eventually removed them from that kit because they made rattle noises.

Yea Camco, thats it. The tom didn't like the Atlas Mount. I will come home someday and there will be nothing but sawdust and the Atlas mounts in a pile on the floor :)

Thanks les, I have seen similar concoctions as that before. I think that Larry has experimented with it and has a thread about it.
I have thought about whitening my vintage WMP kits in the past, but in the end I decided that I like the creamy yellow aged look that they develop. I like to let them age gracefully.
