here are:
Kush Abadey on his set, Cindy Blackman on that set, Cyndy Backman on another similar set

It was very common for dealers to install whatever hardware the customer wanted. Rogers was very popular! Dealers would order the drums with no mounts and install them at the store.

A bigger question would be, why do the toms in the Cindy Blackman picture have re-rings

maybe it's a DWetsch.

I would say that those "Gretsch" drums in the Cindy Blackman picture are probably not hers. I couldn't find any other pictures of her playing them. It is probably a rental kit made of of who knows what shells with Gretsch hardware and badges. If it had coated heads, no one would be the wiser. Oddly enough, the only place I can find that picture is on the Gretsch site. Someone in the marketing department must not have a very good eye for detail.

I can't say I have ever seen the script badge before, but the last pic of Cindy is on the kit she used for *****es Brew.(2010)
