    I agree, the lugs also don't seem to match between the bass and tom.

    The sizes but not high tension lugs seem to say seem to say mid 80s. However, I don't know if the wrap is correct for that...

    I believe it is a sticker, I was using "badge" as a catch all. The placement of it looks spot on and seems correct. Just that circle (r) thing just looks off, haven't seen one that large on a Pearl...
  4. Odd Pearl Badge on Snare.... Fake or Real?

    Someone posted this on another forum, but we couldn't really get a good answer. Any one have any ideas? This comes off of a snare. Everything screams early 80s Export, but that registered mark...

  6. Tension Rod Size for 1982 Pearl Export?

    I have a 1982 Pearl Export that I've been refurbishing. I rewrapped it and as I was getting everything put together, I decided I should get some new tension rods for it while I was at it. However,...

    Check http://www.drumfactorydirect.com I've seen they have repro coffin styled lugs. Not sure where their stuff is made though.

    Yes, it came with those metal hoops like in the picture. I changed the metal bass drum hoops out for some wood ones. The original metal hoops were pretty gnarly when I got the kit.

    Yes it does have the acoustic coat sealer. Okay so it was what I was thinking (82 export) I just didn't see the mufflers on the pictures or even mentioned in any of the 80s Export catalogs I saw so...

    Questions about early 80s Export

    I've had this kit for a while, and I'm convinced it is probably a 1982-3 Pearl Export set. However, recently I had a question. For any of you with a similar vintage set, mine has internal drum...

    I basically just gave them a wipe down with windex which got rid of all the grime. There really wasn't any bad rust on the tom rims, just one of the bass drum hoops and the snare is pretty bad, so I...

    No it originally had metal hoops, however one of them was pretty rusted on the inside so instead of cleaning it up I ended up finding some wood hoops for a reasonable price.

    I posted this over in Vintage Drums, but I figured I'd post it here as well. Here's my early 80s (81-82) export after I finally got it back together this afternoon.

    After lots of windex and stuff, here's the tentative result. I ended up replacing the metal hoops with some wood ones and the T-handle bass rods with some standard ones. That combined with all new...

    I don't know if it is necessarily a case of happy or unhappy. I'm a bit neutral right now. The drums will need a lot of cleaning, the toms are pretty scratched up and dinged up... and the whole kit...

    I just found a scan of a flyer online announcing the exports in 1980 and it looks like the bass has 10 lugs.

    Anyway, now it seems that I'm looking at a set of early Exports I'm wondering if I...

    Just got this set of drums today, don't really know a lot about them. I'm guessing they are probably early 80s, Exports?, Toms and Bass made in Taiwan and the Snare is Made in Japan, judging from...
