Hey y'all, I have a (guessing) late '80's early '90's 8 x 12 Gretsch tom I'm looking to pass on. I got it under the impression that it was Red Rosewood when I bought it, and when I received it I found that it wasn't. I'm not sure what color category it falls under, but I'm thinking it is a...
I picked up this lovely 70's Gretsch 13/16/22 kit the other week and have not stopped playing it since. These shells sound excellent! It has some really cool fade to it that I think adds to the character.
A couple months ago, I acquired an older Gretsch kit from a mutual friend who needed to downsize. I was the beneficiary of that need and was able to make an arrangement with said friend to take the kit off his hands for a deep discount. It had spent about 15 years in cases and when we started...
Picked up a set of Brooklyn's from Maxwell's in IL this weekend and wow. I am have always been a die-hard Ludwig guy but these sound incredible! I threw some Vintage Ambassadors on the batters and these drums have such a great body and warmth to them while also maintaining great projection. A...

I’m restoring a Gretsch Energy drum set and I am missing 8 bass drum T-rods. They are 85mm, which I can not find for sale anywhere. If anyone has any new or used T-rods that are 85mm or close to it, or know of a place that carries them, please let me know.
On the hunt for a Gretsch leg from roundbadge era for a progressive jazz kit. I actually need one but I’m open to buying a set as I expected that’s what I’d out there! This would be the style the very slightly flares out at the bottom for a 14 inch floor. PayPal ready. Thanks!
