Default 1966 Gretsch RB in Silver Satin Flame

Here we have the classic scenario of a floor tom missing. Such is the case with the latest addition to my collection. The Gretsch Progressive Jazz Outfit consists of a 14x20 bass drum, an 8x12 tom, 5.5x14 snare and a 14x14 floor tom. In my case, the floor tom is missing. To make the search even harder, the drums are wrapped in the rare silver satin flame and are in excellent shape with few issues. Finding drums in general in this wrap in this good of shaper is hard. Finding that 14x14 floor tom will be very difficult. But the search is a HUGE part of the vintage drum fun. And I already have been looking but hereís a perfect opportunity to let you all know that Iím looking for a 1960ís Gretsch Round Badge 14x14 floor tom in sliver satin flame!

And sometimes a substitute will also work until you find that matching floor tom. In my case, I was able to locate a brand new 16x14 BroadKaster floor tom with the modern version of silver satin flame from Bentleys Drum Shop in Fresno CA. Under stage lights you cannot really tell the difference but for now, a perfect show worthy substitute and Iíve already used this set on several gigs and the drums sound amazing. All the drums have the original Gretsch Perma Tone heads and still sound great.

OK...I can see the difference!! Seriously, though, this is such a great kit, Mark! And, yes, the hunt is part of the fun! I hope you find that illusive 14x14 in Silver Satin Flame!
