Re: Pics of my restored CB700 kit w/ wrist watch lugs

Hello ardrummer
Your wristwatch kit looks fantastic

Re: Nice bollero snare drum !

Hello Rob,

Re: Help with wrap color

Hello Mark I did see the blue grain pearl when bringing up the color charts

Re: Help with wrap color

Hello yyc067
I think your drums are most likely Pearl made

The earliest Pearl chart I could pull up so far
was from 1968 and does not include that finish

Re: 1960s MIJ Purple / Black Diamond Pearl

Retro yes I think they call the wrap Gold Ingot

(also badged Zim Gar) a few years before buying the kit
