The closest I ever had was a Maxwell Espresso Burst Gretsch kit. But I love those old duco kits. Here's a sample currently w.Maxwells - post your Duco kits photos!

I love me some Duco, but it has to be blue and silver for me. That's real Duco!!

My first kit (acquired 1964) was a '58 Slingy black/gold duco.
The bass drum was single tension.

I didn't like it at first but it has grown on me. Doesn't hurt that they sound good.
