Default Re: Trying to figure out what model/year/shells this kit is.

If you dig into some Pearl catalogs (several on this Vintage Drum Guide), you will likely be able to figure it out. My guess is somewhere between 75-79.....sure at or later than 75, the 79 is a shot in the dark.
Interesting that the inside ply does not appear to be Luan. ??

Cool kit......clean them up, re-head & tune....should sound great. Use Dawn/Water (24-48 hr soak, then brush with toothbrush, then polish using micro-fibre cloyh and TurtleWax "Rust Remover and Chrome Polisher" bottle about $3) for the snare and chrome.....NO steel wool.

Snare will sound great with standard Remo Amb.
I had a great day! Instead of sleeping in and wasting the day, I got up at 8 and I had all my slacking done by noon!
