Holy Moly...Sparkling Orange Pearl! Incredibly rare! Where in the world did you find these beauties? We have a member here that has been looking for this kit. I'm sure he'll see it. Thanks for sharing!

Found them on a Facebook posting. I needed to replace a few non-original parts, and there were some newer bass drum leg mounts that had been installed (had to plug a few holes with orange glass glitter wrap so they're virtually invisible), but overall it cleaned up very nicely! Photos were taken on a cloudy day - it REALLY sparkles in direct light!

Never would thought they'd be on Facebook! Even more rare is the matching snare drum, since at least 99% of snare drums sold were metal shell models.

I have this same kit in Sparkling Purple Pearl, but without the matching snare drum.

Very cool. What are the sizes? 20, 12, 13, 16? Serials nicely clustered?
