This kit features a very rare Gretsch 4160G (4161) 24-karat gold plated snare drum, engraved and complete with a gold-plated tuning key.
Unusual are the gold-plated counterhoops and lug casings and tension rods seen on this kit. The drums are just striking in appearance and also feature the legendary Gretsch sound that made them among the most popular jazz kits of the day.
The drums are 14x18, 8x12 and 14x14 with a 5x14 snare drum. The bass drum pedal has a custom footboard with the 'Jack's Drum Shop' logo cast into it. Aside from some new drum heads, this is an unrestored, original condition snapshot of a legendary drummer's tool of the trade, from a golden era of jazz.
You also see here the original hand-turned drumsticks that Jack made at Jack's Drum Show, including some for his close friend and drum legend Buddy Rich.
