My first pro kit was an 80's Gretsch in this finish, but 20/10/12/14 FT (standard depths, except the 10x6 with interspersed lugs). Great little kit! Good luck on your sale!

Now you could order anything you wanted but Gretsch standard power toms were only 1 inch deeper than standard toms so these are 9 by 12, 10 by 13 and 11 by 14.
I believe Gretsch power sizes were 10x12, 11x13 and 12x14. One inch shorter than Ludwig and Tama power toms, but two inches longer than standard Gretsch toms. I worked drum retail from 1979-1985, so I witnessed the birth of the power tom craze. Nice drums - I always loved Gretsch's Rosewood finish.
