For sale is a set of vintage 22/12/16 SSB Gretsch drums in Rosewood finish. This is definitely players kit but also has a cool little added bonus of being signed by the great Steve Jordan on the inside of the 12 tom.

The bearing edges are clean on all three drums. They were unfortunately fitted with Pearl hardware (hence the holes on the kick drum). There is no badge on the kick but the gretsch tag is on the inside. Couple of the T rods on the kick are not gretsch T rods. Kick hoops are mismatched and there are no floor tom legs included.

Price is $1300+shipping. Can provide additional pictures/info upon request.

I would also be interested in the following:
-Nice maple 18/12/14 bop kit (Yamaha Absolute Maple comes to mind)
-Yamaha Absolute Maple snare

The Pearl hardware should not be a total deal breaker. Many people, I for one, have Gretsch drums with the Pearl hardware, as it was so much stronger than the Gretsch hardware during the laste 70's, early 80's. GLWS

IIRC, Pearl was making a cover plate for that tom holder setup? Maybe one of those would be an improvement on the looks. Nice set regardless.

Yeah for functionality the Pearl hardware is probably an upgrade. Aesthetically it's always nice to have the original hardware.
