Default Japanese made Kent center lug kit in psychedelic lava pearl

Hello mij drum folks
I just found these Japanese made, Kent badged, drums
In the cool "frog in a blender" psychedelic lava pearl wrap

I gave 350.00 shipped here to Rhode Island from Buffalo New York

I will be needing the extra long tension rods
to restore the resonant sides of the bass drum and both of the toms

the seller does have the two resonant side hoops for the two toms
but not the missing bass drum hoop



If anyone has any of the stuff needed I would sure like to know about it

Thanks Kenwood

I might just have the 6 extra long rods you need. One of my MIJ drums had center lugs, but that is one I am converting into a 20" floor tom. How long do you need them for the floor tom & tom? Might have some of those as well.

Wow, never seen a wrap quite as cool as this one.
You could digitally replicate a piece of wrap (I know printing wrap is possible) for the missing hoop.
Congratulations with this unique kit!

Hello Jay,

Hey pal that is excellent news on the bass drum rods
I have not received the drums yet
But the seller sent them right out and they are only out in Buffalo
as soon as I get them I will measure the rods for the two toms

Hello bartw Thank you for the reply
I love that wrap and also your idea for making an inlay

Thanks a million

The only reason I found these drums at all was
I was doing searches like "psychedelic lava pearl" and "frog in a blender"

Just to try and find a matching snare and/or even more importantly
a matching mounted tom to help make this partial Star kit a little more complete

But instead I stumbled on to the Star made "Kents"
