    Go for it if you think it will work for you.
    You could add a GK-90 kit if you remove the mount, and it would then be like a virgin shell too if that makes it like you wanted it in the first place...

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

    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".

    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.
