The shells are luan mahogany - looks like old cheap doors, but they are warm sounding shells, not a lot of sustain. I have the chrome snare and it is a great little drum.

One of the tom arms broke after a ciyoke of years and y dad got it welded for me. Thankfully, you can find parts on eBay now if you need to replace anything.
Very cool history/background on your kit. It looks great...really like that orange sparkle! I have a couple other MIJ kits and am really happy with the sound they produce
