    Looks nice and in good shape. While it's similar to my '94 set, mine has wing nut bass lug bolts except at the bottom and came with single braced hardware all around. I'm not sure if that makes yours older or newer than '94. Perhaps Pearl had mid-production variations, to use up older parts or experiment with new ones.

    According to my catalogue archive, the changeover from wing nuts on the bass drums to square tension rods occurred in 1996, along with the newer, sleeker lugs.

    To wit: this is based on what the catalogues say. That is the "historical record" of the official story that we have. It is common knowledge that reality has veered from that at times. But since the higher tiers had already switched to keyed rods by the mid nineties, and it is clearly a good idea in and of itself, one can imagine this having been a popular upgrade.

    I've always let my kids play my kits. They'd ping around on them from time to time. My daughter ( 20 yrs old tomorrow, actually) was better than both of her brothers right out the gate. I thought she'd stay with it, but she became a teen and drums just weren't girly enough anymore. The bass player in my first band has a son my sons age and he plays guitar. So I'm trying to encourage him to get back to drumming 5th the 8th grade band. But he's involved with so many sports he don't think he'll have time. And I'm like " make the time " you be glad you did.

    But I thought that would be cool if these two boys ( and they're already friends ) formed a band after both of their dad's were in a band together.

    Those were my parents. Wouldn't let me play the drums because "drums are for boys." Good thing I got grown. Now I play the bass AND the drums. (Which, according to my mom, is why I'm not married.)

    That's hilarious. Tell your mom I would marry you for those reasons alone. That is, if I weren't married already!

    My 96 Export Select with 'virgin' bass drum. I had the 13 somewhere but never used it. Loved that kit.
