    I had one also. It was a very very adequate kit. I'd have kept it if add ons were an option several years later.

    Totally agree, it was a fine gigging workhorse. Not sure how modern exports compare but this is what exports built their reputation on.

Got them for my son. Kept them around. Added another kick. Cut down the 16" floor to 14" deep suspended. Painted hoops and ISS white. Painted cowbell and added Bocote ridge. I'm gigging with this kit. The EC2's sound great. G1's on the bottom. EMad 2 on the main kick. I recovered in car wrap shrink. Massaged and trued all the bearing edges. Paiste 2oo2, Sig and Sound Formulas. Snare is a 13x11 Granstar converted to 8 lug die cast with Tamo fade bum wrap. Now 13x7.
    My favorite Export kit on the forum!

    Here's pics of me and my 88-89 Yellow Flash Exports. The pics were bad so I tried to edit them for they'd be a little more visible. This was a gig in the early 90's. I was in my very early 20's

    Is it normal to have tension rods in the front and wing nuts in the back? I'm just now noticing that.
