Bought this Dorado (Japanese Gretsch) set together with an Apollo set for $20 at a garage sale in 1997 or so. A few years later I sold off the Apollo drums but kept the Dorados. I removed the badly beaten gold sparkle wraps and re-covered the drums in cherry veneer with an antique oil finish. I put the original Gretsch name foot rest on a dw pedal. Spent a whole heckuva lot more on cymbals and stands than I did on the original purchase of the drums, that’s for sure! I’m looking to pick up a second floor tom to finish to match, I really miss that second floor tom.... Added a shot from above and a panoramic shot of my view from the throne.
