I have owned my SSB Gretsch drums since June of 1983 as these are my first set from when I was 12. I will attest to the bass drum sound as mine is the loudest bass drum I have ever heard. Mine has all original Gretsch hardware and it is pretty crappy IMO. The only thing I did was to change out the floor tom legs with the new diamond plate version. I did not have to do any mods to make this happen. It was a snug fit but it worked.
