Re: My First Vintage Restoration
Maybe the reason Premier wrapped them, none of the outer ply wood is matched. Looks like 3 totally different woods. Unless you want a wild collage effect, a very very dark stain may be the only way to bring them together to look like one kit.
They are a quality shell well worth saving though. The 3 toms are probably a mahogany, not sure what mahogany they sourced back in the 70's, North American nowadays is basically extinct, African is the quality replacement, Honduran is a cheaper quickly grown version. the kick, could be maple but I think Premier used more Poplar.
