P.O. added a 16”gold sparkle Slingerland RadioKing c. 1936-1942. Many years later I added a round badge 9x13 Starlight Sparkle and a 16” Silver Glass SSB floor. It’s quite a collage but my 20 year old son says it’s really cool. Thanks. I’m good.

I would be interested in the matching 14” if it was out there. But that’s my “White Whale”.

Congratulations on a Gretsch Round Badge Kit!.........There is nothing in the drum world that sounds quite like it !
I have a '62 and still play it out. Don't forget the Remo Classic fit for these babies....and now you can get coated Powerstroke 3's in Classic fit too!

Nice find on these! I fixed up this champagne set last year. I got the snare, the 12 and 14. I needed some missing parts which I found and several months later I lucked into the bass drum that someone sold me from a facebook Gretsch page. These sound great and yours will too.

That red sparkle seems to hold well against fade. I currently have these on marketplace for sale. (Local pickup). 1951-52 name band with orginal calf skin heads except snare. They are sweet. I wish you'd seen these earlier.

This is an old thread from a couple of years ago. I have mine listed on here for sale :)
