Gretsch Round Badge Aqua Satin Flame 14 inch floor
 
Any idea of a value of a 14’ Gretsch round badge aqua satin flame in good condition is? Silver interior tag is in great shape. Even has original heads. I also acquired a 20 inch bass similar great shape with original heads. Thanks!

Here’s some pictures of the Gretsch Drums! 14 floor and 20 bass in great shape. Little to no fading, common scratches either with satin flame finish but very good example of this rare finish in even rarer sizes! Even has the original batter and reso heads on both drums! Please reach out to me at 937-516-2952 via text or send me a pm on here if interested. Thanks!

These look to be worth a couple hundred dollars. Very unpopular wrap, in sizes that most drummers dislike (especially jazz guys who always go for an 18" floor tom). Plus it looks like all the parts are there and drums are in excellent condition. This means they won't need any work in repairing or tracking down missing parts. What fun is that? Tell ya what, I'm feeling generous today. I'll give ya $250 to save you the trouble of trying to unload these tubs on some unsuspecting rube.

Yes, my post was definitely intended to be humorous. Those are two very nice looking drums, in a wrap that doesn't tend to age well (unless really looked after). The fact that they are round badgers, indicates their tone will likely match their good looks. Wish I could be more helpful with assessing value, but I have no clue. Best of luck with the sale!

Hahaha I figured it’s so hard to judge sarcasm online :) these are in very good shape actually being stored in a museum curators office for years that’s actually where I acquired them. I’m having some trouble even tracking a sold or for sale 14’ floor so it’s been challenging pricing.

Hehe, yeah, I thought for sure the "jazz guys love 18" floor toms" would have served as the nudge nudge, wink wink. I mean, I'm sure there is a jazz player somewhere, who loves an 18" FT, but seems like most of the bop kits came equipped with a 14".

I think 12/14/20 are great sizes. You probably saved my marriage by not having the matching 12" rack tom (and/or snare).

Not to be a home wrecker but if these don’t sell in the next day or so I’ll grab a matching tom and sell it as a progressive jazz kit :)

I'm sure you mean 18" bass drums not floor tom

a RB kit in a 18,12,14 configuration could bring up to $15,000 in great condition ... those are highly coveted

Not sure what you’re referring to. I didn’t see anyone say 18 bass but I portably missed it or it’s been edited.
