GRETSCH PROGRESSIVE JAZZ OUTFIT 1960’s  20, 13, 16 plus 5.5 X14 SNARE DRUM SET.

Here we have a complete 6 ply round badge Gretsch set in the desirable jazz 20” bass drum sizes.


The set has cosmetic issues only, but ---what the hell---- it’s a complete, fully-functioning Gretsch set that sounds just like it should. 

Make a note: all the 6ply shells on this set are clean, with no extra holes added and the bearing edges true. 


So this is the deal:

Recovered in a period correct green sparkle, and possibly sporting repro round badges, the drums are otherwise primarily true to their 6ply origins. 


The all chrome hardware is fundamentally correct, with the exception of the missing dampers for the 13” tom, the floor tom legs replaced,  the bass drum hoop inlays and the rail to the rail consolette also missing ( its base is all present and correct).

Additionally, the snare drum has a repro arm for its micro-sensitive throw off and a replacement bottom hoop, but otherwise is all there and functions perfectly. 


Don’t forget: this set is just about what all drummers hunt for, but for a fraction of the price. A few cosmetic niggles, but that seriously great Gretsch sound at a fraction of the price you would otherwise expect to pay for a pristine set --- if you can find it.


For a player wanting to find that Gretsch thing, this is a great deal.
