Default 1961/62 Slingerland Modern Jazz Outfit in Capri Pearl

Hi all
Well here is a kit I've been hunting quite some time for.
I'm happy to say it's officially "off" the bucket list and that list is winding down.
These drums are in incredible shape with almost no issues.
Almost all of the Capri Pearl kits I've found in the past (which were NOT many) have always had a wrap issue of some sort.
The pictures tell the story here. Not only no fade, splits, cracks, or lifting, but incredible colors still present in the pearl heart like flakes. It's really incredible.
Like a mix of Mardi Gras & Galaxy.
The sizes are 14x20 BD (dated May 1962), 8x12 tom (dated Oct 1961), 5.5x14 Hollywood Ace snare (dated Oct 1961) and the oddball 16x16 FT (dated Sep 1962).
I'm aware that the Modern Jazz Outfit came with a 14x14 FT but since there are no other cataloged sets with the other 3 drums together, I can only speculate this kit was just ordered with the 16x16 instead. Whatever the case, it sounds and looks incredible.
The seller received these drums from the original owners son in rural Indiana. I'm happy to say he did an incredible packing job and the drums arrived safely in CA.
I'm VERY excited to finally be able to gig out with an amazing sounding & looking Capri Pearl kit. This kit will definitely be making some music. Cheers!

Congratulations, great find. Condition looks incredible. Probably pieced together exactly as the original owner wanted, or by a shop, as the snare was not part of the Modern Jazz Outfit either. Floor tom was almost certainly added later, which was not uncommon. Lots of variation in Capri Pearl wrap from batch to batch. FT wrap is not as busy as the other three drums and has larger flake pieces. Beautiful original set, enjoy!
