Thanks for the confirmation, Mike.
Jaghog, do you have any photos of this set?
Also, are there serial numbers or not on the Keystone badges on the drums other than the bass drum which is missing its badge?

My guess is rewrap for this kit. I'm only guessing but I do remember that someone made a photograph of the real pink oyster pearl and then somehow printed the pattern onto acetate or something...basically a plastic photograph of real POP (OPP?) and then used that as the wrap or under a clear wrap or something. It looked kinda okay at a distance but nowhere near the real deal....in my opinion. First of all, it wasn't a random pattern like the original.

You might very well be right on this, the wrap looks like an old 60's pearl kit that i had back in the day.

This is a newer classic maple set. The wrap was made for the 100th anniversary POP snares that guitar center sold and enough wrap was around to do several sets. Bun E has a beautiful set and I have seen a handful of others.
