    Any bright ideas for protecting bass drum wrap from a folded down rail consolette?

    I have always just masking taped a thick mouse pad to the shell right under the folded down mount before putting the drum in the case. . Works great...and free.

    Vintage Kent R.O.P.

    900 bucks isn't terrible. But it isn't great either. If for some reason you really, really want a Kent set then sure.

    It's hard to really tell on my phone, but their black pearl wrap looks like the old Gretsch BDP.

    I have to agree to go with the matching red pearl inlays. The set is shaping up to be fantastic looking. I think you have to go the extra half mile and do the inlays. That completes a great job. Just my 2 cents

    Did 6 lug Gretsch snares use die cast hoops?

    I have a six lug round badge snare with die cast hoops in BDP and it's my favorite snare. Edges redone by precision just as gretch did them in 1962.

    They are gorgeous. This thread reminds me of a guy on another forum about 5 years ago. He bought a set at a garage sale, slingys with cracked, damaged wrap. He did not want to invest much money into it. What he did was, he found on ebay, a seller who was selling the extra pieces of wrap he had...

    Need Some Help Identifying A Vintage Gretsch Set

    Great set. Especially for free! That may have been a special order from the factory to not have wrap attached and a stain applied . I never liked how gretch RB drums look with stain .....they simply weren't meant to be seen without wrap.

    Thank you KO. For some reason I thought you had used the Sea Green like on the rare radio kings set. My bad. Thanks for getting back to me.

    Ko.....remember the slingy set you recovered in the sea green wrap? Could you tell me where you got it? My friend Brad wants to cover a 1950s Slingerland in it. Thank you!
