Default Late 50's Gretsch Round Badge Restoration

Hi All,

I figured it's time to add my Gretsch kit to the Gallery!

This is a late 50's Round Badge kit in the new burgundy sparkle called; Merlot. Sizes are: 13", 16", 20", w/5.5"x14" snare

The kit sounds very warm/FAT and I'm so pleased with how the restoration turned out. Another Classic vintage kit saved from the trash heap! Good to go for another 100,000 miles!!!

Here is a link to the restoration thread:
