Definitely appears post Niles era. Double badge on rack tom suggests early 90's HSS era imports. Post pictures of the badge(s) and serial numbers for more accurate dating.

Hello Slingerland0...and to the forum!

Your kit is from the HSS era, mid 90's, and is the Artist Custom line. Judging by the sizes of your kit, looks like the Power Custom line. I'm not aware of bass drums in that depth being offered, though. Made in Taiwan from wood shipped from North America. Inner/outer plies of Canadian Maple, with 3 inner mahogany plies. They are actually well-made drums and sound really good! The badges usually say "USA" on them. Probably some technicality let them get away with this! A look inside the shells should show stickers with the month and year of manufacture. Mine show December of 1994.

Give the size, quantity and condition of drums, they might be worth $800 to $1000 just for the shell pack. The bigger issue is finding a buyer who would be truly interested. In the real world, you may not even be able to get $500. This is all just an educated guess. I say enjoy your kit!

-Mark
