I tried getting a stopsign badge Gretch kit for months on Ebay, but kept getting outbid on them at the last minute. Something about those gumwood jasper shells. Guess that's why Vinnie went back to using them over Yammies.
Love this Broadkaster set . 18x14 ; 14x14 and 12x8 . To my ears the best sounding kit I have ever played/owned , and I have played tons over the years . Last year I sold my Sonor Phonic bop kit , and my two Sonor Signature bop sets , and bought the Gretsch round badge 20/14/12/matching snare ; the Broadkaster bops ; and a tangerine sparkle Gretsch USA Custom 18/13FT/10 club kit . Don't listen to the detractors who say there is nothing special about the Gretsch shells and their sound . Vinnie knows the score , as does Stanton Moore and many others who are hip to Gretsch .
