You are entirely welcome! Not sure why it happens but I just save your pics, open em in windows photo viewer, and click the orienting arrows until it's upright. Cell phones are suspect and especially iPhones...for whatever reason......computers are the spawn of the devil?

70s Pearl Crystal Beat. Was red but faded to pink. I still have the 12" tom that must've been kept out of the light as it's still red. The Pearl acrylic shells are seamless but they do have a tendency to go cloudy.

Gorgeous drums everyone. Curious if anyone gigs with or plays their acrylic vintage kit with regularity and has never encountered cracking issues, etc.

I gig my Pearl Crystal Beats quite a bit. I even loaned them to a touring band and watched in horror as the lead climbed up on the bass drum They seem to be pretty tough, luckily. (not me playing them in the pic - seems I let lots of drummers use this kit)

I gig with my '73 Vistas on average about seven times a month over the last four years. No cracking or splitting. They are transported in SKB hard shell cases with padding.

My 74ish Pro Beat, I've parted ways with the snare since this picture was taken. Just don't care for the sound of an acrylic snare, not near enough body for my taste. I sold it to help pay for a snare I'll actually use. Most of the time these sit in my basement, I very rarely take them out to gigs. They are a little too loud and bright for most of the rooms I play, and I hate exposing my nicer kits to the rowdy bar scene.
