MIJ in the Sunset

Loading...

I just don't know who made them, could be either Star or Pearl, and from an unknown year. Best guess at era? 58-62. Best guess at maker? Pearl, only because of the pipe mount. But the tom mounting plate on the bass says Star, or Pearl....so we shall just call them....beautiful.

THAT is a cool picture-the sun/shadow accentuates the tones in the WMP-nice work.

Thanks to you all, and I only I wish I could make them sing D' Drummer for you, as they sound simply amazing, Yes Sir especially considering they are supposed to be the "Bic Toilet Lighter" of drums...and never really meant to be around this long. This is 2010, these have to be from aound 62-65, so that makes them at least 45 years young. And since my hand has carefully set them up for a great preservation, they may well last another 40+ years, Burger Kin if my son takes proper care of them.Bowing
