Re: 1950's Gretsch RB/3ply

in my impression these hoops the sound is less compressed than the die cast, more rounded and old style, the 3 ply shell is warmer and deeper sound than the 6 ply, just my impression! ^_^

Re: Future Vintage?

the items with more certainty to collect will be the small objects with the brand, such as the tunes key, etc, to see the prices of the current vintage that also sell at 30$, I am not a collector,...

Re: Future Vintage?

sorry for my playful tone ... but a drum released exactly in the 1980 for reasons of developing and assembly time inevitably must have still built in the late 70s, the end of everything was about to...

Re: Future Vintage?

Re: Future Vintage?

I would not like to open a sort of flame, but from my experience until they become a very very heavy ping, Old K offers a musicality that can not be found elsewhere, the New Stamps are the less...

Re: Future Vintage?

I think only Gretsch had better drums in the 60s, which were already really great in the 50s, let's say the improvements were the die cast hoops, but the shells were slightly better the 3 ply, Ludwig...

Re: Future Vintage?
