Default Gretsch Round Badge Grommet Search

Ok so I have been restoring a 20" Gretsch round badge bass drum and can't find a grommet long enough to fit. I've bought some from ebay and they don't go all the way through the shell. Does anyone know where to purchase the bronze or bass grommet that is long enough? Thanks for any help. I look forward to posting pictures soon.

Cool Re: Gretsch Round Badge Grommet Search

Contact My Old Kentucky Drums or Detroit Drum Exchange on ebay...They both sell different sized grommets...They may be able to help you...

Gretsch bass drum badge grommets didn't go all the way through the shell. That's why so many of the badges on bass drums went missing.

Explorers Percussion in Kansas City has a lot of Gretsch parts.
