I just bought a(nother!) Gretsch RB kit but the sizes were advertised 8x12, 14x14 and a 12x20 bass? Can this be true? Granted, sellers make measuring errors all the time but still, I've never heard of a RB bass that size.......has anyone? Thanks.....

What color and year are they..soon as you get the serial off the tag we can investigate further.
Round head screws /Hex head etc.

That kit is way cool!
Yeah man, I bet that bass drum will sound fantastic.
I have a WFL 12x20 and it just kills!
A while back I posted about someway getting a pic of a Gretsch drum in copper lacquer so I could get a color match for a snare I want to paint, would you send me a good closeup pic when you get them??
Are they three ply?
