Re: Help with Gretsch SSB kit!

I've never seen a Gretsch badge set to 11 o'clock; makes me nervous. Do th drums have intact, unmolested, interior labels (I didn't read all replies)? BD T's and claws are right, but those hoops are...

Thumbs down Re: Half naked drummers

What's the difference between a musician with tattoos or a pro sports player with tattoos? Both can be seen on TV, any time. Maybe just get over it (?). I don't have tattoos, nor would I want one,...

Re: Found Some Gretsch

Soooo, what sizes, cr0w? I wouldn't worry so much about what model. Could've been part of any combo of kits. You'll never know, but you can surmise. No matter what sizes, I'd look for a 16x16 FT...

Re: More Gretsch questions

I thought the through-bolt leg mounts were from the 50's and maybe into the early 60's. Guess I'd be interested to know, too.

Two Pratts don't sound right (no pun).

Thumbs up Re: Found Some Gretsch

Are they a 22" BD and 9x13 tom (looks like five lugs)? Definitely the wrong t-rod in the one shot, as Blair mentioned. Looks like it had a different mount added/removed, too. Extra hole on the...

Re: Are Yamaha Drums Good?

I don't know about their drums, but their stands, integrated amps, motorcycles, pianos, soundboards, guitars, jet skis, outboard motors (prolly more items) seem to sell well.

Thumbs down Re: Slightly OT - drumming FAIL!

"Vocals". Those are not vocals. I really don't know what it is. To me, it sounds like angry, guttural mating calls, interspersed with painful, difficult, t urd-jettisoning. Maybe that's what...

Thumbs up Re: GRETSCH 4160 Love...

I would love a COB Gretsch snare. I have two wood units and run the same heads, but with OE throw and Puresound blasters and got it sounding very nice and lively, not boxy. A COB is my next quest,...

Re: Slightly OT - drumming FAIL!

I was kidding (and poking). Not my taste in music. Guess it's not funny, if I have to splain it.

Sorry.

WOW!! Bob had some chops! That WAS a great show and I loved BC. The whole cast was a fun mix.

Re: Gretsch Rosewood Lacquer 1971 Stop Sign

Hey Robbie! Sounds like you're going to have a lot of work ahead of you. Bully for you, taking on such an ambitious project. Your kit will be the envy of many, including myself.

Thumbs up Re: Don Henley drums?

I thought he played Slingerland, early on. Not sure what the bigger kit was. Or, maybe he mentioned his mom bought him his first set, which were Slingerland and I think he still has them.

I think you should just give up and let me take care of that 8x12 tom (my latest quest). Just kidding.

Here's a point to ponder: If the finish on a wood drum is so beat up and beyond...

Re: Why so few toms?

Kinda' depends on the music, no? You can't do Rush covers on a 4 piece, can you (though, it would be a fun challenge)? Been reliving my youth the last few days, listening to some old Iron Maiden. ...
