Thanks for the welcome everyone! There were some Pearl drums from that era that used Keller shells because the Japanese plant couldn't handle the demand, and they were in the process of upgrading their factory in Taiwan to boost production. During that time They used some Keller shells and built them up at their US headquarters. Those Keller shelled drums were badged as "Made In USA" . Mine are badged "Made In Japan, and still have the Japanese quality control inspection passed tags on the insides of the toms.
