Late 60's Early 70's Star in Blue Ripple
 
1 Attachment(s)
This is a pic of my late 60's early 70's Blue Ripple (discolored into a Brown Ripple:)) Star kit. The snare is 8 lug and the kick is a ten lugger. All original except for the bass drum hoops which are wooden and I believe therefor not original. The shells are rather thick and painted black inside with rounded bearing edges. It is a truly amazing sounding kit.

Great looking kit! My Star kit has metal bass hoops that I believe were original, but it is an acrylic kit, so maybe they used both metal and wood, or maybe yours have been replaced...Ralf will know for sure. Either way super cool kit!
BTW- A guy on Ebay does retro Star logo decals for the bass drum, they are cheap, and look cool.

Hey thanks Mr.Toast. All the Star kits that I have seen so far had metal hoops so I think they are non-original. Anyway, the wood looks quite cool as well. Thanks for the tip off on the Star decal. I will definitely check it out.

Cheers and have a great day.

Hey thanks Sean. The hoops on mine are one black and one brown- actually looks quite cool. Since I doubt I will ever find inlays of the same wrap as the drums, I will just have to live with it I suppose:)
