Vintage Rarity
As of this listing this is one of two known sets in this finish from this early era of
 Stop sign Badge drum production.
The other set is a 12 13 16 20 set up owned by a
fellow collector and ebayer: )
There have been a few snares spotted on ebay over the years but none
the less it is different to say the least


This factory matched set has many unique features starting with the finish color
A white oyster or silk type finish originated by European makers and used first I believe by Sonor
The finish was adopted by Gretsch in the 70's but not cataloged as an
official color until the post 2000 rebirth of the mighty Gretsch company
when a Vinyard Series snare was cataloged in this finish.
The set consists of all   Japser shells with factory edges

tom holder as seen on this set

  The Bass drum hoops are new replacement with Chrome inlay
Thanks to the good folks at Gretsch I was provided with enough material to replace the inlays
However they also informed me that the early 1970 version of this material had a blue tint
 and that the new white material may not match well, they were correct but I
will include the material and you can make your own decision
The chrome does looking dashing!
