  • Export or not?

    Folks - I'm looking for some expert knowledge on this ebay auction.
    The kit is described as an Export (the bass drum head says as much) but I have some doubts:
    - 10 lugs per side on the bass drum
    - what looks like a "Maple shell" badge on the top of the bass drum (the pictures are very poor quality)

    Is this an early style of Export, or something a little better?

    Thanks

    There is no Maple shell badge on bass drum .. it just has the rectangle Pearl badge .. It's an early 80's Export .. that bass drum reso is original to 1st gen Exports .. also Exports came with 10 lug bass drums back then, unlike today .. wrap is Yellow Flash and shells are 9 ply Asian Mahogany with acoustic coat sealer on interior

        I had that exact kit, with the edition of a second kick, for 25+ years. Great sounding drums.
