Default Re: Looks Like a Gretsch....but it's not!

Those Radio Kings are pretty beat up but they sound good. The rack mounts are probably just as rusty as yours! I think the floor tom was once a rack tom since it has a rack tom mount on the side as well as the tom legs. The legs look like the correct vintage so I suspect that they were removed from the original floor tom and put on the larger (14" rack tom). The other tom is 13". Not as old as yours with the tacked bottom heads.

Hello again Frankenkit

One of the best things about a kit like that is
previous modifications and most wear and tear is only skin deep
They can still sound awesome and can be played, moved about, and enjoyed
without the worry that comes with having some pristine kit

Amen to that. And don't forget the added satisfaction of having a kit that is truly one of kind. No way you walk into Guitar Center or show up at a gig and see the same set of drums as yours.
