No not the satin tobacco/vintage white (which is dull but not awful), I'm talking about whatever the abomination of a finish is on the kit in this video (you can see it closer up at 4:09):
It's clearly a fade combined with a marine pearl layer and I think it looks simply terrible. If I recall correctly they also did another one with a blue fade layer. YUCK!
I have the same kit, espresso burst, and whole heartedly disagree :)

It was a joke jOe. I was kidding.
I deleted it because I figure it might fly over your head.
Thanks for dredging up the dead and throwing it back in my face.

No, I meant Regal Tip, but again, it was just a joke.
Sorry about the "throwing it back in my face" comment.
Yesterday was a tough one. I probably should've just stayed off the forums altogether.

I currently have a later 1970s Drop G SSB kit
bought the 13,16 and 24 for $800 and then added a 14 to it which had same badge and mount.
all i need is 14 and 18 floor toms , and i'd have the Tony Williams config

just amazing drums. the range these have is huge. Tune em high, tune em low.
I love the feel and bark from the DieCast hoops on the toms as well.


before i found the SSB on local craigslist i had one of the old Catalina Birch kits
Nice sounding kit. this was the only kit i ever bought brand new
12,13,16,22,14

All things Gretsch!

Post your Gretsch kits, snares, hardware, etc. Talk Gretsch gear, wishes, ideas, NAMM rumors, etc.

Anything Gretsch, put it here!

Let the posting begin!
Is it too late to join the ruckus on the “great gretsch sound” from offshore drums. ?

I love Gretsch and have renown and cat jazz. But it’s all nostalgia driven.

Nights with Elvin and Tony is not = to anything offshore. Great pricing and quality though…just sayin….

wish I wasn’t 74 and poor…Brooklyn / broadcasters are magnificent

Cindy Blackman already jumped that bridge!!!

Honestly I've kicked CS Dots top and bottom around for years, just to see how close I could get the drums tuned ala TW....but really...what's the point. TW would sound like himself on anything. it was never the drums.
