Default Kids Star Drums

Earlier today, my wife and I visited an antiques shop in Waterford, Ontario, Canada. To my surprise, I came across a very small bass, maybe sixteen inches, and a attachable tom , perhaps ten inches. Both were wrapped in a very cheap red swirl of some sort. The drums were banged up and missing hardware. What I found interesting however, was the fact that they were badged with the silver, rectangular Star badge from the late sixties. They were overpriced pieces of junk! Even I, as a Star collector, walked away quickly! I never knew Star even made kids' kits. Maybe Ralf or others can shed some light.

Hello Brian,

Please, allow me to do some house advertising:

;-)
Indeed, those kits are rare, as they obviously had to stand the drumming attempts of our kiddies (or ourselves at that time ...), and this treatment happened over decades.

Cheers,
Ralf

This Pearl made center lug kit was originally red sparkle
and in very poor condition
My seller re-wrapped them in the green pearl
I thought initially it was a kiddie kit also
But the snare and mounted drum are standard size
the floor tom is a 13" and the bass drum is 18"
