I think I have seen those aroundI got mine some weeks ago by Steve Maxwell. I already purchased single Drums and most of all cymbals, which were shipped to Germany, but this was the first entire kit, which I bought from the US. The price was ok, the kit looks great and most of all (although I wasn't looking for) it has a matching snare, which sounds suprisingly great.
Since all of the drums sound aweseome, I'd love to add other matching drums to this kit (22", 10", 16"), but It would be almost impossible to find them.....
Love anything pertaining to GMSYes, the BD is 14x18. That was one of the reasons to choose this kit instead of a Gretsch Renown Jazz Kit, which offers only a 16x18.
The advertisement said, that these were made in Taiwan. On the badges there's missing the node "Made in USA", so I thinks, these are Taiwan made.
Indeed, before I got this kit, I thought I felt like parting with the snare, but as I said before, the real surprise IS this snare, so at the moment I'd keep it.
If I'd sell it, I'll conact you. Why would you prefer the CL over SE?
