    I can't see if there is any re rings.

    There is. The S-023 was long enough for the action that it protrudes past the shell. This means it can be adjusted to the desired tension, but also adjusted infinitely with the amount that it...

    Not really.
    It may have just been a change due to batch.

    BTW, acousticoat was used in 82, 83, 84, but also in 87, 88, 89.

    That re wrap looks great. Good job...

    What the seller is calling big beats looks to me to be a W5 kit from the late 70's
    If so, it's 9 ply luan only, or "dynamic wood".

    Yes I'm sure they are 9 ply shells, you can see individual plies in the first pic you put up (complete with "flea bites" on the bearing edge).

    Righto,
    If we take away the "concert" toms for a moment, the double headed 4 piece remaining looks to be Pearl from the very late 60's ('69) or early 70's.

    Nice pickup!

    I reckon you're thinking they are the same as 1969 Thunderking's.
    I can see why, with the pedals in particular.

    The only thing out of sync with any kit from the mid 80's is the vents.
    The one I can see on the kick I would expect to be from the (late) 70's.
