Wow, I missed this. Thanks for the plug, John.

Yes they are still for sale. Please PM for details if you are interested. AND, I know who has a floor tom.

Appreciate it!

Ray

Gravy is good people, you might be able to work out a good deal with him for the two pieces. If I hadn't already done this one, I'd be all over Gravy's two drums and do it all over again. Check em out.

Thank you John. Gravy( Ray), I will send a pm. I do have some interest in this. John, hope you know Im not wanting to copy yours, I would like to find a a vinatge kit that needs a wrap job, be it Ludwig, Slingeland, Rogers or really am interested in Camco drums. I think it would be fun to work with the wrap for a change instead of paint.

PM replied! Hey you are in IL and I'm in MO. We might be able to meet up so you can look at 'em in person. I'd rather deal with a forumite than ebay anyway.

A marriage made in Heaven! You going to wrap them in the new Merlot? It's a killer finish and has gobs of 'vintage mojo' to it. Hope you guys get to do the deal.

Jeff, I'll be looking forward to checking out progress on the rehab of another great, old Gretsch kit.

John
