Had that same one Mike, missing the "script" Pearl badge, along with a matching tom. Wish I never sold it.

Very nice!

I just realized that I had this pic stored. I think the kit belongs to a member on another forum.

Here is that Pearl made Stewart bass in "sun set"
with some white marine orphans (also pearl made)
that I had mentioned earlier Mike
The snare is a Fuji

also for another recent project I have been rebuilding these stripped down, beat up U.S. Mercury drums in fantasia pearl

Great thread! Here are a couple MIJ kits with funky wraps that have passed through my hands. I must remember to bring a camera in to work the next time I teach at a local high school. There is a nice little MIJ kick with this textured (to the touch, not smooth) bronze wrap that I have never seen elsewhere.

Some really cool finishes! Glad we're keeping this thread alive! I forgot about my late 60's Crown 3pc kit. Don't quite know what the color is called. Looks like a blue oyster, or something similar, but also has glass glitter flecks in the finish. Very interesting and uncommon!

Very cool finish, Mark! Sadly, it will be almost impossible to find a matching floor tom in that wrap. However............

It reminds me a lot of the blue pearl from ddrum on their "SE Flyer" kit. I own of these and it is awesome in person. No glitter flecks in the wrap, but still pretty close.

I always get a kick out of seeing a Crown kit. I can't get over the size of those badges! Those are the largest badges I have ever seen. Anyone else seen bigger? (badges on a shell, not logos on heads or cymbals).

Also, take a look at this thread I started:

http://www.vintagedrumforum.com/showthread.php?t=58364

That's the mount! Wow, that's a super rare wrap and a super rare mount! And you also have the factory cymbal mount! What a great Trifecta! That looks like my Olympian kit exactly, right down to the Premier style "hockey stick" wing screws, except mine is blue sparkle. My rack tom also has the receiver mount secured from the inside (like a spur bracket usually is) instead of like the one on the bass drum. That's really cool! I had never seen one until my recent purchase, and then "BAM!", you come along with this picture. Excellent stuff, Brother!

Mark, when you get a chance, can you measure your spur diameter on that kit? Mine were missing on my kit, and I found it odd that 3/8" spurs (standard size) were too big and wouldn't fit in the brackets, and that 5/16" are a little too small. Even when fully tightened, they are still a little loose. I used 5/16" screws to test them out and they fit but wouldn't stay tight enough to not jiggle a little when fully tight. I suppose I could use 5/16" straight rod or 5/16" All-Thread and just wrap some duct or plumber's tape around them where they fit into the mount. I've had to use that trick on rubber tips that are a little too small on stands or spurs.

Also, it looks like there is a chrome, circular knob on the bass drum between the tom mount and the hoop? Is that right?
