Kenwood, the pattern definitely looks strata, I think I’ll be happy calling it blue strata.

Mark, thanks for the color swatch, but from what the previous owner told me, the kit is from the mid 60’s.

Actually, your kit is a 1968-69, as evidenced by the Rogers-style mufflers in the toms. These were used for only 1-2 years, beginning in 1968. I had a 1968 Whitehall (Pearl) kit with all the same hardware as your kit.

Well sweet... thanks Mark. That really narrows it down.
So, it’s a ‘69 Bollero in Blue Grain Pearl.

Like I said before, the wealth of knowledge here is incredible!

I meant blue grain pearl, but had seen a similar wrap that someone called peacock pearl, so that's what I thought it was.

Hi DrumBob!

I was going to comment about Peacock Pearl not being correct. I'm attaching a picture of my Lido Supreme snare drum, wrapped in Peacock Pearl.

Hello Mark I did see the blue grain pearl when bringing up the color charts
to me the differences were a little too distinct to be a batch variation
Though It sure does look closer to the BGP than it does anything else shown
I was wondering, could it be possible it was just an uncatalogued wrap for Pearl that was used there?

That's it. Different lot number or something but that's it. Look at the snare.

So... the general consensus is that IT IS blue grain pearl???

Yes, I believe that would be the consensus!
