I just bought three piece black marine pearl 60's pearl drums. I've never seen or heard of a 7 lug floor tom. this kit includes a 16X15 floor tom with 7 lugs each side a total of 14.
It is missing the bottom hoop. I need one.
I also want information on why pearl did this. Is it a fluke? a one year only thing, Has anyone seen another 7 lug floor tom?

I've never seen one! I'll ask our headquarters if they know anything about this.

I would really like to know more on this drum. The pearl badge and the lug mounting screws look like they have never been taken off the drum. The only damage or change is the previous owner spray painted the rim flat black and lost the other rim.
Thank you for your time.

Gene, Thank you very much for your quick response. I restore Vintage Pearl's for my own use. I'm a real drum nut for sure.I like New Pearl's as well, I've just ordered an ELX 2216 in amber mist. I'm Placing 8,10,12,16 toms in different Mist shades with it. I like all the finishes so much I had to have them all.
I Hope to order a Masterworks kit soon.
Thank you for your time and attention to my questions.
