Is it one from real OEM MIJ range??
This is a Pearl Fiberglass kit and you can find the finish in old Pearl catalog from the 70's.

Close but no sigar, its called Egyptian finish Why a drum company from Japan made Egyptian finish on their drums make no sense..but they are cool. The cover on the drums are metal and the drums are the heaviest drums i have!
