Last night I put new heads on the drums: Evans G1 (coated batter, clear reso) and a new bass logo head from Gretsch. I replaced the damaged Evans EQ4 bass batter head with another EQ4. The tone is amazing! I didn't have a chance to actually play it, but tonight I'm going to grab a snare, hats, ride and crash and putter around with it.That's a cool kit. And being an unmolested survivor, really interesting. More than a "player's kit" imo.
Ask the same to this one...if you want..I asked the seller to measure the distance between the screws, and his measurements are different from the holes in my tom by 1/4".
Does anybody know what the distance is supposed to be?
I have NEVER seen a Gretsch date inside past 1953...and I have had a lot of Gretsch sets!..16" floor tom:
- Sometime in the past, somebody spray painted "U.S." on it. Maybe it was something like a USO drum?
- Very clear date stamp inside: JUL-7-1953
- Same badge issue as 13" tom.
- 3 ply shell, very clean, bearing edges are very smooth.
