    The Really Slow 1964 Gretsch Bop Restore

    Update: I have everything finished on the high tom except a badge. Taking some time to ind the right one. other than that, done! The wrap on the 4157 snare is so mesmerizing, I didn't have the heart to tear it off! The sound and tone of it fits in better with the rest of the kit than the 4105...

    Anyone owns an Hollywood Meazzi kit? Post a picture!

    They are easily my favorite drums badges! Both the main badge and the vent hole badge. Normal drummers pine away for a Sonor or CamCo but I just dream of a Hollywood President or a Meazzi HiPercussion.

    I think it would be worth the drive but it would be time better spent once he opens an actual storefront and not appointment only stuff.

    No, I asked. On the third floor of Hollowoods at one point was Waddels Drums and at another point was Drum World. When I was at Hawthorn picking up my BD, he had just been over at Hollowoods looking to rent out one of their floors. Hollowoods used to be amazing, with Johnnie B Goode's used gear...

    Not really a suburb, it's a district within city limits, just up the Ohio river from downtown. He's a couple blocks past the McKees Rocks bridge in an pre-war, brick industrial park kinda place.

    Is that the dude running a store out of a storage locker/band practice space in the Rocks? I bought a 20" Club Date BD from him, very nice and easy to deal with. Edit: Given your location, I assume you ordered and wouldn't know.

    Who can tell me about Barth-Feinberg?

    The Rocket lugs with the die cast hoops make it look pretty Gretschy to me.

    I like the rimshots on my 2 Gretsch round badge snares? Very sharp and snappy, I love the die cast hoop feel.

    Opinions wanted on why Ludwig 14" floor toms seem to be "rare" or uncommon

    Funny, I have a mid 60's Gretsch kit and a mid 60's Ludwig and the Gretsch has a 16" floor tom while the Ludwig has a 14"! The whole Ludwig Club Date I have is smaller than I'm used to seeing from Ludwig in 20/14/12/14.

    Gretsch RB 14” floor Tom 6 lug?

    Yes and there's a shortage in the world of cool cocktail kits.

    Gretsch RB 14” floor Tom 6 lug?

    I love that style hoop! I don't have any drums with it though, I should remedy that.
