    DJ Fontana gretsch copper mist

    Something that I noticed about the bass drum in the big color picture and it is also seen (if you look close) in the small b / w picture is that there appears to be 2 small knob (hex? headed) Pratt mufflers - one for the each head? At least that is what it looks like to me at about 11 o'clock...

    Tommy unfortunately the answer to that question is no, I sold my last and my dearest Rogers set, the beavertail Mardi Gras. It truly was my favorite set but as things go I need to forget about it! :(
