Pictures sent in (February 2007) by Charles Benedicto from Darien, Connecticut of his Gretsch drum set. Beautiful work Charles!
Sam, Here are a few Jpeg picture files of my recovered Gretsch drum kit. The kit was covered with your Vintage White Pearl. This kit consist of a 1950’s 5×14 snare drum, 14×20 bass drum, 16×16 floor tom, a 1970’s 12×14 suspended tom and a 9×13 rack tom. These Gretsch drums were originally covered in a black pearl when purchased, and fortunately… it was easy to remove. The reason I decided to change the covering was that my first drum set was a white pearl Ludwig kit that I played and loved in my high school days in 1960, so it was natural that I cover this Gretsch kit in that finish. After watching your video on your web site I felt confident that I could handle the recovering myself. The covering went on so easy with your taping system. I think now the kit actually sounds better than it originally did or maybe it sounds better because it looks so good? Charles Benedicto
