    Default Late 1980s MLX Series

    Hello, all.
    This is my first time posting, been a member of the forum for only a few months. Thought I'd show you some pics of my classic 80s set up.

    This is a Pearl Prestige Custom 8500 MLX Series in Coral Red on a DR-2 rack. I purchased this 9 piece back in 1989, gigged for about 10 years, then put it away and raised a family. Now I've got them revamped and I'm loving drumming again.

    Added new Rocket Toms and a matching MLX 14" floor tom that I found on eBay. Old Roto-Toms placed near the floor toms just for kicks.

    I needed to replace all the classic Hi-Tension lugs as a number of them were broken at the tapped hole on the lug. Toms are mounted on 1985 design Purecussion RIMS mounts.

    So for now, I'm enjoying playing at home, practicing my chops, and having fun on this big kit.
    Thanks for looking.
