Default Gretsch Floating Action pedal... looks good, plays GREAT!

A fellow VDF-er asked me to spiff up his FA -- and I bought a second, in case I needed parts or whatever. It was also kind of a 'test model' to try out different ideas to choose from.

The foot board has been polished by the friendly gnome at the polishing shop, who also put a satin finish on the hoop clamp, strap cam and beater holder. The satin finish hoop clamp was re-threaded to put in the more practical (by far) tightening 'bolt.' If you'd prefer a more traditional wing screw, I have another clamp that hasn't been re-threaded. To me, the knob is better if you plan to use it, but it's up to you. I MAY also be able to re-re-thread the satin finish, but I think that's pushing my luck!

Pics will give you an idea. The price is just five bucks more than the re-furb, so you basically get the original pedal for five bucks.

Same deal on shipping: I'll pay half if you're in the lower 48 US states...and I'd be glad to ship internationally.

Any questions, feel free: wafulton5@gmail.com, or 269-716-7476 voice or text.

Thanks!

Thanks - these are fun to work on... and well made, too. This type of pedal would be $$ if being made today!
But vintage always trumps new in my book!

I can't believe I forgot it!
$95.0- USD, or best REASONABLE offer.

Jeez. Thanks for the help. I totally need adult supervision.
