Default La Prima drums

Here's my latest find, a pre-Tama Hoshino Gakki kit I found under the name La Prima. It is a 3 ply mahogany shell with re-rings, sticksaver hoops and an odd venthole placement on the bass drum. It has the original Kings Stone heads on it as well. It came with a 20" pre-serial number Paiste Formula 602 ride in pristine condition. Not a bad score for $350.

Wow, I really like the 'decal' badge. Was that common on any other MIJ stencil brandings? I don't recall seeing that before. Plus the USPO is cool.

Everything about the kit is cool. The price was well worth it especially with the paiste cymbal. Still some good deals out there. sean

Is that even a badge ? It looks to be inside and part of the wrap.
