I´m using different combinations of these drums on most of my gigs ranging from acoustic Jazz to loud Independent Rock. These are 2 sets of 81" Drop G Gretsches in Black Nitron wrap (20,12,14 + 22,12,13,16) and a rewrapped Stop sign 18x14 bassdrum
Thanks again for everybody´s input! I do appreciate that alot.
Seems that I´ll just forget aboutthe issue for now - we´ll se what the future might bring...
And since somebody was asking for pics of the set "from the outside", here are a few:
most of the screws and washers inside the shells of my recently aquired Rogers holidays are pretty rusty. I´d like to know the following:

My Band of 30 years has done a project together with a Big Band last year. To promote some upcoming gigs we´ve finished another video of the material that has been recorded at our debut in May yesterday that I´d like to share with you. I would love to get some comments btw.
I´ve put them through their first "Rock test" the last two nights - and they`ve passed with only the best grades!
btw. those for you that are on facebook and interested could take listen here (snare is an 68 14x5 supraphonic
I´ve aquired these drums in the middle opf december and since then allready played them quite a bit. I really like them! THey sound (and look!) great and also different enough from my Gretsches and the Ludwig Kit to justify (to myself) having bought them. Might eventually look for a snare too...
Well it´s not really pristine - the 12" Tom has some rash. but it does look amazing for sure (at least in my humble opinion)
And it does sound great! And , thanks god, different enough from my Gretsch and Ludwig to "justify" having it - at least to myself ;)
