Yamaha kit - help me identifying it

Loading...

Hi.

I bought a set of drums, snare and cymbals at low price.

I know almost nothing about vintage yamaha kits, but the bass drum and 2 toms seems to be good. According to the photos I think the black finish is homemade painted, the kit is at a friend's house so I didn't check it yet.

The white floor tom is a 16" or 18" premier, the badge is missing, and the snare is a sonor, I think.

No idea about the cymbals. When I get it I'll take more photos.

Can you give more info specially about the Yamaha?

Thanks

based on the lugs and badge the Yamaha drums are late 60s/early 70s C series drums with the foil badge. Maybe the wrap is still under the paint? Can I see a hint of Golden Dragon wrap around the tom badge?

The floor tom looks like a mahogany Premier Olympic model from the 70s

I really think the wrap is under the paint and I think it was painted with spray. Did you notice the white bass drum head painted black arround the "YAMAHA" and over the logo?

I thought that the "golden" stripe arround the badge was from itself. Now I look more carefuly and it seems to be the wrap not painted.

Thank you very much for your time and help. Cheers

How exciting. It would be great fun cleaning off that paint to reveal whatever the hell is underneath. I think these drums would come up amazingly with a little work, but it might be hard. The cymbals look me like really low budget pressed stuff but I could be wrong. Nice drums though- interesting find! Please post if you manage to get that paint off! :)

That cymbal is a Tyrko and they were made by Sonor. It appears that your snare has the slotted tension rods which would suggest Sonor or Premier or maybe some other European make that I am NOT familiar with. Are there any stamps on those cymbals?

I had a great day! Instead of sleeping in and wasting the day, I got up at 8 and I had all my slacking done by noon!

I'll do my best to recover this drums. I am excited to remove the black paint and reveal the original finish. I'll post photos later for sure! Cheers :)

I don't know any size. I bought it quickly without thinking due to the low price. There was more people interested, I had to do it. The kit is at friend's house. When I get it I'll post more info/photos here. Thanks
