It got lightly scraped in a few spots, I saw the blue and decided to take paint remover (the water based, eco-friendly I used on my Vistas) to an area under the kick and investigate it. For some reason I seem to get a hold of cool looking drums that people felt the need to paint black.

I'm going to spend my time playing the drums for now before I restore 'em. They sound really good!! Got coated Emeperors on the toms, clear Ambassadors on the bottoms and a Powerstroke 3 on the kick.
Man, that finish should be awsome when you get it cleaned up, although the kit looks pretty cool with the black finish. Love those offset lugs too. Wish my Silvertones had offset lugs

If this is the Majestic from ebay in black pearl, it is a Star arm, that one is like finding a hen's tooth. Please post a pic of the set. If these are the ones, they are overpriced. Can you please give the details of your kit and the pix?

Hello everyone! I am new at this forum, I have a Majestic '83 drumset.
I will try to post photos, because it is completely new, even drumheads are original. The only thing I changed were the cymbals. Now I have a set of Sabian-Power Beat.

Whoa! Thanks for posting. I'm picking up Hoshino and Tama vibes. You sure it's an '83?

Default Re: Majestic Drum Set

Here's a nice Majestic set I picked up on craig's list in Phoenix, AZ a few weeks ago. A (most likely) late '60's 5 piece with the original pro pedal bass drum pedal. The hardware appears to be Star with gray painted drum interiors. The shells are very nice and round and the chrome is in great shape. I added some mid-'80's TAMA hardware (snare stand, hi hat stand and bass drum pedal), used the existing ludwig flat leg cymbal stand and had a similar import cymbal stand. New heads and new wuhan cymbal pack and we are off and running. Sound very good!!! The bass drum hoops are the metal type. The wrap is in great shape--oyster pearl. I had to do minimal cleaning and adjustment. I'm new to the forum and to MIJ vintage drums, so any input about this set would be helpful. Thanks!!!!

I have this Majestic Deluxe Kit - missing the floor tom, unfortunately. Can anybody help identify the wrap (maybe Avocado 'Flame') and the approximate year?
Tuned them up and they sound great - I was surprised how good.

Oh... and what's that funny mount on the right side of the bass?

Luke
