Default Re: Gretsch Black Nitron with a Round Badge

Man is Morello cool or what?!

Thanks for that!

The Brubeck family is/was big in Westport where we live, although his kids may have moved to nearby towns.

Don't think my 20/16/13 technically qualifies as a bop kit, you know I had a 20/14/12 in Black Nitron years ago, but foolishly sold it cuz I prefered the other larger rock size Gretsch kits i had. Clearly I sold the wrong kit!

So, the reason for this latest purchase and hunt for orphan BN toms.

I'm about 85% along in the restoration. Fitted new ginger glass hoop inlay, swapped in 2 tone controls for the floor tom, swapped in different heads. Thankfully, the last owner has 'em for 20 years, and took pretty good care of them
