Default Vintage Pearl Kit 60's?

Hi,
I bought this used at Guitar Center for $250. Could someone tell me what I have here? I researched the badge and apparently it's from the early 60's.

I don't know how early they could be, but I used to have a Pearl with that same badge that was from about 1968. I believe my lugs looked a little different than those though. That's a pretty kit! Seems to be a nice price you paid too.

Nice looking set Yarny. I'd say late sixties to early seventies being that colour (red oyster pearl). I can't quite make out the BD tom mount or the spurs. Should have a consolette rail and telescopic spurs I think.

You can see it in the 69 catalog but with the slightly later tom mount. I'd still say yours is from around this time. The red oyster wrap isn't in the 68 catalog.

$250 with the original snare was a good price too.

The kit that I had was in dark blue pearl and was 20,12,14 with matching 14 snare. I gave it to a buddy of mine because it was originally his kit in high school.

I agree with the late 60s/(very) early 70s opinion. The style of lugs as well as the thicker, no-rerings shells...

Another sweet vintage Pearl kit. Cool color and excelent shape. Nice white interiors. You can't but a cheap kids drum kit for $250 these days...

Good pickup.
