Red Pearl Round Badge Era Gretsch Drum Set
Rare is an understatement!
Rare Gretsch finishes include Peacock Sparkle, Copper Nitron, Caddy Green
 Moonglow Satin, Olive Satin
Perhaps  the only finish rarer to find on Round Badge sets is the elusive Green Pearl.

Most examples of Gretsch drum bearing the Red or Green Pearls are early era stop sign
 badge sets, making round badge sets very rare indeed.

 In this past year the public market has seen many Caddy Green, Peacock Sparkle and
even a few Copper Mist beauties but there are far fewer of the Red and Green Pearl sets
making the opporitunity to add one of these beautiful sets to your collection just
as rare as the drums themselves.

I sold my own Red Pearl Round Badge set a few years ago and was hoping to
replace my current SSB era set with this set but other personal purchases
demand its liquidation. Here are the details

All bearing edges are factory and the drums tune up and sound as red hot as they look!
 The bass and 13 each have small shrinkage fractures eminating from the badge
tacks but they are small, you can hardly even see the 1 on the 13" it is so small
as for the bass drum see the detailed bass close up pictures
Chrome plating throughout the set is in nice condition
The finish is rich red and very glossy and in very nice cosmetic condition no major rash dings or dents
