I know I ain't the first drummer to ever have to sell a kit(s) to get by but it was "money" sitting on the floor of my apartment that I had to turn into cash. Yes it sucked but I'll come back to Gretsch someday soon!

    You gotta do what you gotta do. I went through the worst time of my life about a month ago and i’m still trying to pick up the pieces. The support I got from this forum was a massive help.

    Wow, that really sucks. But....a guys gotta do what he has to do. They were awesome drums, but (I suspect) they can be easily replaced at some point in the future. If they were vintage, rare or special in some way (like belonged to your Dad, or your first kit, etc.) then it may be different. I’m sure you’ll be able to pick up another very similar Gretsch kit (maybe even one you like better) when you’re back on track.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    Sort of...The Gretsch USA kit was made in 2013, first year the round badge made a return. I would of hung on to the Gretsch kit if the shells were Jasper's.
