In stock at Daytona Beach Drum Center, 1950's Gretsch Broadkaster 4pc in White Marine Pearl. Overall in excellent condition for it's age, making this "collectors condition". The wrap is tight and very consistent though out the entire kit. One small "light spot" on the bass drum, shown in pics. Nothing alarming or noticeable at first glance. The parts are all original, with added heating element in the snare. The added element is not original, but it's one of the finest examples of a heater we've ever seen. The drums were cased in a climate controlled environment for over 30 years and is a great representation of Brooklyn era 1950's Gretsch. The original owner claimed the kit was played at the 64' Worlds Fair in Queens NY. Although this cannot be verified, the timeline and location of this kit makes sense.
