Keep the heads...they add character. Just think if they could talk...looks like they've been around for a while.

Maybe I used the wrong emoticon. My head comment was meant as a joke.

MB was one of Gretsch's most common,if not THEE most common color for them in 20,12,14 / 22,13,16,but I don't hear of too many 18" kits in that wrap for some reason.

Hello,
The original owner said he bought the kit with a 20" but after a few months he swapped it for an 18". The kit sounds great! the dirty heads sound surprisingly good Thanks for all the comments.

I'm salivating. MB is a beautiful color for Gretsch which probably explains why it is a common color.
