    Default Early 80s Exports

    I have two Export sets, I think maybe the first is a black 7 piece EX 172L from the Export "Deep Series" from 1982 or 1983, and the second is a wine red, maybe a five piece EX 5300 series from 1983. I am in the process of re-wrapping these drums, and I see the acousti coat sealer inside the two drumkits are a little different (see pictures) Anybody know anything about this?

    By the way, these drums are in very good condition and they really made good stuff back then!

    Not really.
    It may have just been a change due to batch.

    BTW, acousticoat was used in 82, 83, 84, but also in 87, 88, 89.

    That re wrap looks great. Good job...

    Thanks! Yes, but I read somewhere that acousticoat was more of a brown colour when they started to use it again around 1988. And both of the sets have 10 lug kick drum, which I think was phased out i 1985. The Exports of the early 80s I think is really solid and well made.
