Contact for shipping estimate.

Gorgeous 1962s Gretsch Round Badge Bop Outfit topped off with the correct Max Roach model 4x14 snare drum AND a 5x14 Name Band model snare. This is an original 14x18" Gretsch bass drum along with the appropriate 8x12, 8x12 & 14x14. These drums were purchased from the nephew of the original owner 6 years ago. The gentleman was a working country drummer residing in Fort Worth, Texas and special ordered these drums with a center rail mount that way he could play two 8"x12" toms. The original outfit is 18,12,12,14 along with the 5x14 snare. The 4x14 Progressive model was added later to this kit and is a perfect color match. These drums are completely original with ZERO modifications or issues. From the tension rods down to the paint on the bass drum hoops, everything is original. We have installed brand new Aquarian American Vintage heads on all of the drums with the exception of one 8x12 tom, which still has the original Gretsch heads.
