The Big Red Gretsch

I found this kit while I was up in Carlisle PA peddling wheel striping with my dad. It was on craigslist in West Virginia, and I had a feeling in my gut that it would be worth the detour. These things rule!

10x14, 16x16, 18x18, and 14x24 with my 6.5x14 Black Beauty.

The Gretsch who stole Christmas!!! Great looking set and the playing excellent. I like the ease with your playing and the rhythms are earthy. Good job.

That kit looks and sounds absolutely fantastic! Great find!

Even though John Bonham played Ludwig, I’d call this kit “The Bonhamator”.

Dang man - I'm a huge Gretsch geek and this has me firing on all cylinders.

That's a sweet kit and you have it sounding great - congrats!!

I haven't had an 18" floor tom since my old concert tom set in like 1999 - I'd love to sit down behind a big ol' kit like that again.
