Default Restored Tiger Eye Pearl

Just restored my brothers kit for him. A complete kit with snare and all is a unique find in Australia. It sounds unique too. Enjoy

Nice job. That's a nice complete set and with the stick saver hoops too. Well done

For some reason - of all colors of any wrap....this one just seems to have something about it - that reaches out and grabs you by the heart, by the tastebuds and ..... just so darn RICH! This just may be my favorite color wrap of all time.
I have a project kit of these, that will involve a trade. I have a 24" BD in this color (Whitehall) - I know - talk about rare!
My friend I met here on the forum will get it and I will get his little 20" BD......eventually!

Nice job.great vibe on that kit.

I had a Pearl with those same badges,probably an earlier model,in a blue marine pearl,and like yours the hardware was a little rough,some pretty heavy pitting, but the wrap came back really well they looked fantastic under lights,the wrap on yours looks really vibrant,some of those old MIJ wraps are really nice quality from what I have seen.
