Default Re: Vintage Pearl Fibre Glass Kit Need Info Ebay Purchase

That's in great condition... 70's I was working for Pearl's OZ distributor..
I had the same kit, same year, same hardware etc, only with wood-fibreglass shells. The Fibreglass shells are generally hard to come by.

Cheers
John

Sean, I played and still play a Pearl FS-1 Artist in WMP from the same era. (Mine has the COB Jupiter snare though). The sound, while not as mellow as wood, always served me well playing a long time in a 60s/Beatles tribute band. Not Luddy wood, but gave me the sound. Has a strong projection, but it always helped for the extra umph when not using mics. If I had to tone down the projection, I too would lay on the mufflers. Once you get heads on these and have a listen, you might get the all-fiberglass flu! All drums have the trapazoid-shaped black with brass-like print badges. Enjoy and good luck with the flip. Dean

Hi Dean
Nice kit you have there in WMP. If i were keeping these i would definitely get the jupiter snare. Must say this metal snare like the drums tunes up easy and sounds absolutely great. The kit doesnt stand me at a lot of money so selling this kit will be easy. Has some hardware but from the 80's ill probably sell those on seperate. All the best sean
