Re: 58' Gretsch Progressive Jazz kit/Sound File

Real nice kit and great sample of your chops John.
I wish more of you here would show your kits while playing.

Viewing images on VDF

Hi all
Anybody here view VDF on an iPad?
I've noticed that some attached images when pressed open right up while some do not.
Any suggestions on how to get those to open?
Thanks.

VDF is a great place to learn just about anything you need to know about vintage drums.
Not only that, but VDF has made me a better drummer.
What a great group here!
