GRETSCH 1952 3 ply drum set
Complete 4 piece includes a
 24" bass drum and matching 6 1/2"x 14" snare drum!

WOW




This is a fantastic piece of Gretsch history for anyone who ...well anyone!

 Built in Brooklyn New York in the Great Jazz and Bop era which solidified " That Great Gretsch Sound "
This Piece has retained all its glory and is remarkably well preserved and in excellent condition!


This is by far one of the Rarer Gretsch offerings as not to many 3 ply 24" bass sets trun up
 and is easily one of the finest examples I know of.

This drum set is 100% Gretsch factory components except for new Remo heads which seat easily all around
Even all of the tension rods original Flat washers are present



The TOTAL condition of this drum set is incredible.

Very very Low miles on this drum as it looks to have seen very little play time.
A great collectible musical instruments and an asset to you and your collection.

Now lets remember this set is 55 years old yet....
Original Blue Glass Glitter Finish is in excellent condition with only a few light marks
Classic Brooklyn Made 3 ply shells with clear maple interiors with
Factory Bearing edges in excellent condition
Chrome fittings are also excellent
