I realized that I never posted my after shots. So you don't have to scroll back and find it I've re-posted the before pics. 1960's Gretsch in new tangerine. The kit was originally that color so I tried to bring it back to as original condition as I could. The kit also originally had a matching snare that was sold off in the 70's so I found an era correct snare in rough shape to match up with the kit. Garry Williams of San Francisco Drum Shop did the amazing work on the kit!

House kit at The Record Plant in Sausalito, CA. Used on Rick James and Sly & The Family Stone to name a few.
Beautifil kit! If I may ask, what heads did you use with that thick glitter wrap? Did what you used give you any trouble with the fit?

The only heads that fit tight is on the 13" tom. I'm using American Vintage medium top and bottom on the toms and snare drum (yep, AV snare side on the snare). I'm running a Super Kick I on the batter with a Force II on the front. The logos on the bass drum is actually one giant 20" decal. So needless to say that front head is quite thick!

Drool. Actually, that's my set-up exactly, except I have a Ludwig. That's a gorgeous kit you have there...

13/16/22 RB. Refinished by my wife and myself in an amber stain and nitrocellulose lacquer with custom mahogany/cherry/maple inlay banding to replace the original wrap inlay.

Was previously heavily cracked white satin flame with thick black paint on top. You could say I like this better!

Matte - Is that a 12 14 20 kit? I have seen maybe two Caddy Green kits without gold hardware.
