This Vintage 1970's Gretsch Progressive Jazz Drum Kit is in very good condition for its age. It is in original condition with no modifications and would make an ideal restoration project or just used as it is. It is almost complete.


The kit consists of:

20" x 14" Bass Drum

12" x 8" Tom

14" x 14" Floor Tom with original legs

14" x 5.5" Snare Drum ( chrome over brass, I think )

Snare Stand

Hihat Stand

Bass Drum Pedal

Cymbal Arm



* The overall condition is really good for its age. There is some fading of the woodstain due to sunlight in places but the drums still look good despite this. In my opinion this is not an issue with this kit. The chrome work is all in good condition.

* The snare drum mechanism is worn and fiddly but it still works when you get used to it. The snare wire is Gretsch and is presumably original.

* The snare drum shell is caved-in around the butt-end where it has presumably been dropped. See photo. Probably repairable by a skilled person.

* There is no front head to the bass drum. A free front head of your choice will be included.

* The floor tom legs have some small areas of corrosion.

* The heads are all old and could do with being replaced. Some may be original.


The purchaser of this kit will be entitled to purchase new heads from this shop at trade price. I will also include free of charge a Gretsch decal to put on the bass drum front head. Please contact me for details.
