  • Help ID my kit

    I'd appreciate any info on what year, model and material my kit is. It has the 727T tom holder (I replaced the center post w/ plumbing pipe). 12", 13" and 16" toms with a 22" bass. I bought it off my cousin and he always boasted that it was a maple kit but I'm to so sure. As you see it has some kind of gray coating on the interior. My best guess is it's basically a 1980 pre-Export series kit. Can anyone out there give it a positive ID? Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    Welcome to the PDF

    Are there any badges on the kit?
    What you've said so far points me towards late 70's W5 series...

      Just the black and gold Pearl logo and a small silver "Made in Taiwan Republic of China" sticker
