Absolutely stunning 1960's Gretsch round badge Progressive Jazz outfit. These babies are fresh in on consignment. They're extremely clean and in one of the most Gretschiest of Gretsch finishes, Midnight Blue Pearl. Very classy & beautiful. These drums tune up wonderfully & sound killer. They nail the 60's jazz sound with the greatest of ease & grace. The wrap is still quite vibrant with brilliant luster. It is clear that they've been very well cared for throughout their life. The original hardware & hoops are clean & brilliant. The bearing edges are all true & original. At some point, the original owner added vintage Ludwig spur brackets to the bass drum which have been removed. The original Gretsch spur mounts are installed for proper original set up & use. There is a small split in the wrap on the very bottom of the bass drum that runs with the grain of the pearl, is not very noticeable & cannot be seen when set up. The snare drum still has the original Gretsch wires which still sound great. All of the dual sided tone controls (top & bottom) are nice & fully functional as is the original Jimmy Pratt bass drum muffler. These drums look & sound like a dream! The interiors of the 6 ply Jasper shells are all adorned with silver sealer paint & paper tags.
