Part of a large collection of Elvin’s gear acquired directly from his estate. This Gretsch bass pedal was owned and used by legendary drummer Elvin Jones. This rare Gretsch Direct Pull bass pedal is itself a rarity. This is the only one I've ever seen. It's likely this was a prototype given to Elvin to put to the test.
The pedal remains in excellent condition.

COA signed by Elvin’s wife.
