Gretsch USA Custom Stop Sign era 4 piece drum set. This is Gretsch's best kit of the day and still today in a beautiful Rosewood Gloss. There are several scratches and smudges on all four pieces but the kit 100% operational and sounds great. That great Gretsch sound can't be beat and that is why most of the best drummers all play Gretsch kits. It is also used by most of the best recording studios too. You can feel how solid the set is and it's a bit heavier than most kits. This kit is made to last hundreds of years so don't worry at all that it's over 40 years old. I didn't like the tom mount so I changed it to the current version but I saved all original parts in case you want them.

It is made of six plays of maple/poplar/maple with 30 degree bearing edge and the inside is finished with the "Silver Sealer".
The bass drum is 20", the mounted toms are 12 and 13 inch, and floor tom is 16x16. This kit sounds great in every type of tuning (low, medium, high). The low price is because of the scuffs and scratches - it's a player kit and not a collector kit - meaning that is made some beautiful music in it's time. If you are looking for a USA Custom kit you won't find one this cheap - they usually go for $2500 to $3500 used but, I don't want to ship them and I want to move them quick. In New York, LA, or Chicago I could easily get $3000.

I'll put up more pictures in a few days but you need to see them in person.
