About This Listing

Another GREAT sounding ORIGINAL 1960's Gretsch 6-ply bop kit! RARE Tangerine Sparkle finish. Mid-60's Round Badge set in original Tangerine Sparkle with an 8x12 tom tom, 14x14 floor tom, 14x18 bass drum, 4x14 snare AND 5.5x14. In incredible shape for a 50+ year old set, with only minor wear here and there on the finish and hardware. This is NOT a floor tom conversion but a real 18" bass drum that has all that great Gretsch 18" bass drum sound. The snare is snappy and sensitive and toms are on the open with with a clear, warm tone. Drum heads are a bit snug, and bass drum has a dry, punchy tone. Rogers mounting hardware is ORIGINAL to the set and the set has no extra holes. Also has a Rogers collete for a cymbal arm on the bass drum. Rogers hardware is arguably the best of the era and makes this set sturdy for a player, with an easy to position 12" tom tom and spurs that always hold in place. Seams are in great shape and I believe a few have been re-glued in the last 10 years.
