From what I've read there are a few of you guys out there that know a lot more about these drums than I do. The date is stamped inside the drums so I am sure about the 1971 date, but I can't find any mention of this color/finish on any of the existing threads. Can anyone help me out? BTW these things sound fantastic.
That's the same pattern on my old Standards, except in sort of an orange/gold.

Let me explain this once more..
Snares are like handbags,
Cymbals are like shoes!
