Default Kit ID?

Anyone have an idea what brand of drums these might be and the approximate age? I'm guessing '60s MIJ? Any "words of wisdom" would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The snare is a 1990s/2000s Indonesia-made Yamaha. Actually a very nice drum, I have it and love the sound.
As for the kit, I have no idea. Looks European to me, but the tom mount is American style, thus possibly an MIJ knockoff.

Oldschool
the bass and toms look to be Star made thick shells
with grey painted interiors and the Sonor tear drop cloned hardware

Do you believe that the shells have wooden reinforcement rings? Thanks!

I wonder if they might be Hoshino, the tom mount definitely looks familiar?

I agree w/Kenwood on these. First design Teardrop lug, probably around 1970. Star built,maybe Apollo.

Thanks! Any idea what a reasonable offer might be for this kit in its current "as is" condition?

$250.00-$300.00 w the snare $200-$250 without
if they check out to be in decent shape
red sparkle is fairly common but still popular
especially for someone who remembers having some MIJ drums in that color as their first kit
no other color will do for them

same goes for blue sparkle kits they are everywhere because they sold very well back in the day
