Those are gorgeous!!

Nice choices all around and That Great Gretsch Sound! I love glass glitter finishes.

Congratulations

- 302 hoops? Interested to hear what you think of them on the USA Customs as I'm inclined to think I'd order those hoops with those shells also.

6 ply Gretsch 20/12/14 is THE sound to me. 22/13/16 is easier to get dialled in for the kind of music I actually play, but Gretsch 20/12/14 is the ideal in my head. I managed to get my hands on a late 70s SSB kit in those sizes last year, at a price I could afford (thanks to a VERY faded wrap). Congratulations. I'd love to hear an a-b of the usa custom shells with diecast vs 302s.

You deserve 'em, man! Are you on a jazz gig in the pic? Also, one photo shows the drums in a shop. Which shop is it? Best of Cincinnati?
