    Just for posterity sake
    This kit looks like a 1993 EPX kit, called the EX-Pro in the catalog
    the color is #71 Ferrari red and it has the IMS mount which was only available on that drum kit
    The isolated mount did not reappear on Export drums until 1998 when it appeared on the ELX series. However at that time # 71 Ferrari red was no longer an option.

    Pearl copied many of the successful features of Yamaha drums of this time period
    The Ferrari red was a color commonly found on the high end Yamaha kits such as the Recording and Tour Custom
    Further Pearl copied the successful Yamaha high tension lug found on the Recording Custom series (YD 9000), as well as the bass drum claws. Later this lug would be found on the YD 5000 series Stage Custom, which competes directly against the Pearl Export series.

    Any how your Ferrari red Pearl EPX drums look great, enjoy them as you will never be able to replace them, they are part of Drumming history now.

    I have the same kit .... except my wooden hoops match the color of the kit... These kits were sold as entry level kits in the US. Most folks did not purchase drum bags or cases with their kit and simply carried them about from gig to gig open among all the other equipment in the vehicle. What the sales people never tell you is that one should never gig with lacquer finish drums if one does not posses cases of bags to protect the shells. Hardware moving about and the occasional quick stop could do some hefty damage to a lacquer shell.... Mine are dinged a scratched in many places simply due to poor placement and care during gigging.

    The kit is a wrapped kit ... Its a 1993 Pearl Export Pro kit (only year they made them), the kit came in #71 Ferrari red and included the IMS mount shown in the pictures. The Pearl export pro was intended to best the very successful YD 5000 kits or Stage series and Stage 2 series (Power toms) from Yamaha
