Default Yamaha 67-69

Were the interiors of the shells grey that far back, if not, were they still a birch shell?

Andrew, (Fayray)... will probably have a handle on this... He has done beautiful restores on several of the 60's Yamaha kits..

The 60's kits had grey painted interiors as far as I can tell. My 69 D-18 and 69 DTT-225.

This 1967-1968 snare has it too:


The kits were Birch (im still finding out if they also had Mahogany) but defenitely not Beech.
