For your buying pleasure is an nice late 60's to early 70's era Gretsch kit in the Rock n' Roll configuration in the sought after Green Oyster Pearl.

Overall, the great looking and original Green Oyster Pearl wrap is in good shape with some rash on one of the 12": toms, and less than expected wear.  

Silver sealer paint inside the toms, all mufflers present.  Modern heads fit a little snug on the toms, the bass drum has Remo Classic Fit heads as it is a little oversized, but not bad,

The chrome on each drum has some oxidation, wear and light pitting, but better than expected wear for a Gretsch kit of this era. Below are the details for each drum.

1st 8"x 12" mounted tom. Seam is flat and wrap is in good condition with rash wear on one section (see pictures). Stop Sign badge present, die cast hoops, both mufflers are intact and functional.  Bearing edge has dings but are overall in good shape. Modern heads fit snug but well for a vintage Gretsch and tom has a nice warm, round, resonance to it.  Two small extra holes that get covered up when hoops are on.

2nd 8"x 12" mounted tom. Seam is flat and wrap is in good condition. Stop Sign Badge present, die cast hoops, both mufflers are intact and functional. Rounded over bearing edges are untouched and in very good shape. Again, modern heads fit well, but snug.  Tom has a nice warm, round, resonance to it. 

16"x 16" floor tom. Diamond plate style floor tom leg brackets with Gretsch straight floor tom legs. The legs have some oxidation and scratching but mounts are pretty clean. Stop Sign badge present, seam was reglued and wrap is in good condition. Die cast hoops have less than expected wear but were spray painted black on the inside (see pictures) which could be removed. Both mufflers are intact and functional. Rounded over bearing edges are in good shape. Modern heads fit fairly well and the drum sounds fantastic.

14"x 20" bass drum. Double tom holder has some wear, seams are tight, were reglued.  One bass drum hoop has the original green oyster pearl inlay, the other has a faded blue sparkle, but both are Gretsch.  Round Badge present.  Bearing edges are factory and untouched. Aluminum spurs, but the tensioners are not original and require allen wrench.   Pratt muffler intact. 

This is a nice condition players kit that sounds great and looks great! Please look at all the pictures as they are part of the description and ask any questions and we will do our best to answer them.
