Thanks, guys. If I'm correct, it was produced between 1983 (late) and 1984 (mid) only.

Those were released when the hair metal bands were king. I think there were some other interesting finishes from Pearl at the same time. Wish I could say I like them, but that finish and power toms were not my cuppa tea. Good job all the same!!
