    Default Old Session acquired, please help me!

    A few weeks ago I asked info about a Pearl MCX, but in the end I got a used Session.

    I think it's from the end of 80's or beginnig of 90's, 12 13 with ISS, 16x16 and 22x16.
    I bought it from a closing recording studio via a friend of mine, so a dry decent place, and the shells are in great shape, besides a few aestethics marks after 30+ years.

    I will post some pics and ask for your knowledge.

    1) Is it lacquered or Wrapped? There is anything I can do for dents and marks? For example sand paper and some kind of clear coating ?
    2) Do you suggest anything on the inside for the aging wood? Some kind of oil?
    3) Any idea of the Year?
    4) I'n not good at spotting woods, Toms have a lot of "clear" wood (maple) inside a sandwich of (asian) mahogany, with a super thin maple (?) layer inside. Bass drum appears to have a smaller maple layer and a lot of mahogany, any insights on the shell composition would be great.

    Thank you.

    Looks like 1994 Prestige Session in piano black. 7-ply birch / mahogany shells.

    Looking at the catalogs it is lacquered, I don't know if I can do something to restore the finish .

    One thing that I love of this drum is that is very light, even if the shells are thick by today standards, the hardware is a lot lighter and you can feel it.
