Vintage Gretsch Round Badge, 1960s USA Shell-Pack, White Pearl

Although this set has faded together, this set probably started out as a One Nighter Plus we think.

This is definitely ‘players grade’ as there are a few blips here & there.

Sizes are 20″, 12″, 16″ (3 Shells).

So let’s dive in!

The 12″x 8″ has the paper tag inside 4415 serial number: 42335. It has a dark grey interior, both mufflers work, heads sit right without any seating issues. All hardware is original, although the spade clipper mount has large rust areas.

16″ x 16″ – This was probably added later on as it has no paper tags. The dampers work great and the heads sit correctly. The leg mounting brackets have different T-screws but all function very well.

20″ x 14″ Bass Drum – No tom mount and no holes. The wrap has splits in parts, mainly on the underside (see pics). The hoops have wrap separation which is very common for vintage Gretsch RB sets. There are no internal markings or tags and the spurs are original. Out of the T-screws, 15 are present and there is 1, non-original key-bolt screw. Both heads sit nicely on the drum.

You don’t see many Gretsch White Pearl RB sets so grab this one!
