Use the following link and start at 1982:

http://catweb.tgtel.com

Shells and most hardware look to be from that era, but the bass drum legs don't look correct. Also the large "export" on the Reso head doesn't appear in any of the literature.

I've no affiliation with the aforementioned website, but it has a lot of valuable, scanned documents.

Hi Cheez Whiz!!

That's a really great link! I found the Export kit in question in the 1980 Export link. I usually find the catalogs at drumarchive.com to be invaluable, but many catalogs are missing. Your link is fantastic!

This is quite interesting. I'd never seen an Export set with straight spurs or a ten-lug bass drum. Is this a European sourced set? I use a mixed-Pearl set to play out consisting of an 80's Export bass, Maxwin floor tom and CB mounted tom. The floor tom has its original Remo Diplomat-weight reso head and sounds KILLER. That is a nice set...
