Default Re: Clear Sound "Made in Japan".

What I meant was that particular large chip pattern wmp wrap
used on this subject kit
looks a lot like the stuff Pearl used on their later stencil kits
but oh heck yes just about everyone offered some form of wmp

I would love to know more about Tiesco
I have a few kits that for sure do not match up to Pearl or Star
so I was thinking maybe some sets that I assume to be Hoshino K built
may actually be made by this Tiesco

For example I have some Fuji badged drums that look like no others I have found
The lugs of which look basically like Ludwig large classics only without the distinctive lines

Also this silver sparkle floor tom has the super thin shell the Gretsch clone lugs
same thing again on this Tele-Star kit
I was always thinking Hoshino K but maybe its Tiesco?

Could that be a Gracy-made set? They used Gretsch pointy lugs.

Hello,

Just to point out at this old starter's post:
That 'Clear Sound' kit was NOT made by Star.
Lugs are too slim (the ones from Star are equal, but a little bit more wide).
Tom holder unit is different from Star made ones.

Cheers, Ralf
