    The latest. These are the red mahogany Slingerlands that I pictured earlier, fresh from rewrapping and the addition of an 18" floor tom. These haven't even been tuned up or even played on, yet - so one of my future offices, I guess.

    I do not think that is a beater kit looks good to me. Do you have a 12" to go with that.

I had my ‘72 Gretsch Black Nitron kit packed and ready, but decided to go with my vintage Premier kit. 14x20, 16x16, 8x12 and 5x14 steel snare. Smaller bass drum and rack tom than my Gretsch kit and punchy as heck. Lighter too! ;)

    ….oh man, 20/12/16! That's a great setup! I had an old Stewart kit with a Ludwig floor tom in those sizes.
    I don't think I ever had a better time on a kit than I did with that one.
    ...and a set of Premiers! I bet those drum sound like a million bucks.
    Great choice!

    I have used these on every session I have done since getting them, added a couple of toms along the way. I have 10,12,13,14,16,toms and 22 bass drum so I can configure them to suit the project I am working on, these drums have been very good to me I have never seriously thought about using anything else. gretsch1.jpg gretsch2.jpg gretsch3.JPG gretsch4.jpg

    Thanks Elvis! I played them last Thursday for an “unplugged” sort of gig because the bass drum is smaller than my other kits and brought an 18” sizzle ride, 16” thin crash and some light 15” hats. You’re right; they sounded great and were fun to play. They made me play differently. So on Saturday, we had a regular more “rocking show” and I planned to bring my favorite Gretsch kit, but at the last minute, brought the Premier kit with my full cymbal set up and once again they were a blast to play. Besides them sounding great, they’re also a lot lighter than my Gretsch kits and there were two sets of stairs to load in and out of on Saturday, and I’m dealing with an inflamed rotator cuff ;) Our next gig is another unplugged show (with an easy load in) so I’m looking forward to using them again. Thanks brother!

    US model Olympics. Lovely. I have the same happy choice of Gretsch or Olympic and yes, the latter is kinder to the back. My bass drum is a six-lug 20x12" and I can lift it with a finger.
