Gretsch 1961 Round Badge 'BeBop' Outfit in Silver Sparkle
This one owner set since new was bought in 1961 and originally finished in Gold Sparkle.
Refinished in 1973 in Silver Sparkle by Eddie Ryan as the original finish had worn badly.
The original 2 bolt rail was replaced with a 70's Gretsch 4 bolt, and specially made extended rail arm. The badge as also moved further back to allow this.. Pratt muffler removed from kick.
Kick hoops appear to be Ludwig style
Rack tom has the diamond plate replaced with a Ludwig tom block, so two extra holes. Now fitted with an adapted diamond plate that covers those holes. Bottom tone control internals removed
Floor tom leg mounts drilled out for larger wing bolts, bottom tone control internals removed.
An original 18, 12, 14 factory shell set like this is extremely hard to find
