    Default Sweet Granstar o' mine

    Being a young cat and playing a Rockstar was a good thing 30 years ago.
    But NOW I've found this beauty for peanuts

    The colour is "Lilac" in the brochures, and hard to make a pic with the real shine of her.
    22x16, 13x12, 16x16, not a point of rust or somethng like that.
    The snare is a Gretsch 14x6,5 steel with cast hoops.

    Here some pics for 'ya... in our new rehearsal room.

    Nice score! I used to own a Tama Artstar Custom. Nice kit. Wouldn't mind picking up a Granstar. Love the sizes too!

    Nice! I love the colour - it's just so 80's. And Granstars sound great.

    I'm refurbing a set of Granstar Customs right now. Great sounding drums!

    The colour is Heather Metallic, as far as I can remember. Anyway, granstars are one of the best drums ever, and your kit is great, as usual.

    My dad's got a set of Crestars in I believe the same color. It's kind of hard to tell in these pictures but it's very similar (at least as far as I can tell, being color blind). I think I've read of his being referred to as Rose Metallic, though. His is a 10, 12, 13, 16, 22, with a matching 14x6.5 snare.

    Looks like the Granstar Cherry Rose wrap, possibly with Granstar Custom/Crestar Heather Metallic painted hoops.
