Default Early Gretsch Bass Drum Pedal 30-40's??

I can't find any information on Gretsch hardware before the 1960's but I have this old pedal that I'm trying to identify. Definitely has the Gretsch logo on the remnants of the sticker but I can't make out the model name. It looks like it ends in 'EE' but no other letters are clear. BANSHEE maybe?

Anyone have a clue?

That's the one! Is that a personal catalog scan? I scoured the web with no luck. Thank you!

Yeah, I bought a cd-rom of catalog scans off ebay about 20 years ago. Though incomplete they've still been a very valuable resource through the years.
