Default Help identify this kit! (Probably CB)
Picked up a free garbage kit to practice messing with bearing edges. Could look and sound decent(ish) with some work, but I have no idea what it is. Lugs look like CB/vintage Pearl (seriously doubt they are pearl). There is also no indication of badges being on the drums anywhere. See pics.

Anyone? Thanks in advance!

CB is a good guess.

I had a Powersonic with the same lugs but earlier hex hardware that I changed to Pearl when I painted the kit.

I was gifted a cb 700 kit that I cleaned up and tuned and sold and the mounts and lugs were the same as I remember. They actually sounded pretty good.

Hi D-Rum, it is possible that your kit could be a Maxwin by Pearl. I was just given a floor tom that has the same lugs as your kit. I'll add a photo.

Those lug casings were used on a lot of kits back then. My powersonic kit had the exact same.
