Re: MIJ Wrap Finishes-Let's Rank 'Em-Popular To Rare

Thanks Al, I lucked out. Once I have them fixed up a bit, I'll do some proper pictures, and send to Ralf, for sure.

Cheers, and Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.

Re: MIJ Wrap Finishes-Let's Rank 'Em-Popular To Rare

I just picked up a early 70's (I believe) Star kit, in the cool and rare 'Tiger Pearl' wrap. The kit includes two racks, floor and bass. I traded a Pearl Export snare and a 70's Zildjian 20" ride for...

Do a magnet test yet? If it sticks=steel, if not, then either aluminum or brass, most likely brass.

Re: 60's knock off double soul or......?

Could be a Rogers/Japanese made kit. I saw one for sale a while back, was missing the badges, this reminds me of it.

Re: Temptation: Olympic set

Nice set, but no where near that price, imo. I'd go $350.00-max. Sadly, MIE kits are hugely undervalued.

Re: Star/Pearl 5pc with hardware

Re: Premier Club Made in England

Cool set, but unfortunately vintage Premier's don't carry a big resale value, compared to MIA kits. I recently picked up a 74' Premier African Mahogany B303 kit, including 13x9, 14x8 (rare), 16x15,...

Re: Kimberly restoration

Yeah, very cool wrap. The insides of those shells remind me of my 70's B303 Premier African Mahogany shells...which is to say, gorgeous.

Cheers.
