    1940's Gretsch shellpack for sale (1).JPG 47 -  48 GRETSCH SUPERSTRUCTURE SNARE SHELL (5).JPG I have these 40's orphaned drums that I stained in a close match to Gretsch Burnt Orange
    1949 24 inch bass drum
    two 1947 toms - a 13 and a 16 floor tom
    a 1938 6.5x14 Super Structure snare
    No extra holes and all hardware there. I did replace a few pieces with era-correct parts.


    THIS IS WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:
    Three StopSign badged drums. The finish can be toast - it doesn't matter....I'm refinishing them. All the hardware including badges original or era-correct is fine. The shells and hoops in-round and decent edges. Although I can have edges 'tweaked' if there is some defects that can be fixed that way.
    The drum sizes I'm looking for:
    20 inch bass drum
    14 inch floor tom
    a snare anywhere from 4 to 7 inched deep and 13 to 14 inches diameter.
