    1960 Ludwig Transition Badge Downbeat Outfit No. 988P in Oyster Pink Pearl

    Mark...well done, along with a great attitude. I know you are not much into having a booth at a drumshow, but it would be nice if you tried it one day. Many people would really enjoy to see your collection in person. I can only imagine what it would be like for someone, especially a young...

    Gretsch Caddy Green Re-issue questions.....

    Hello DFO, I have two of these kits. Each drum has the paper tag inside with a serial number for that particular anniversary kit. I am not referring to the traditional Gretsch serial number which indicates what type (size) drum it is. One kit has consecutive numbering. The other kit has 3...

    No call no show Craigslist appt.

    Purchased a 1966 Clubdate....questions about the color.....

    As much as I don't want to say it, I think Franke is correct. I think if Ludwig used a gold color from the factory, it would have appeared as a duco and not a single color.

    Purchased a 1966 Clubdate....questions about the color.....
