Default Help Identifying My Premier Kit

I got this kit a couple of years ago. I'd like to find out what it is exactly. Want to put a Period correct bass drum head on it for starters. The guy that sold it to me said it was a late 70's or early 80's kit based on the black sparkle finish, but the badge puts it in the late 80's or early 90's. It's not black inside, so that would make it either a Resonator or Projector, right? The bass is 24x18, Toms are 18x16 (floor), 15x14(not shown), 14x12, 13x11, 8x10. Snare is a Pearl. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The high-tension lugs puts it in the late 1980's to early 1990's. Can you notice anything about the shell configuration? I had a Projector snare around that time, which was a step lower than the Resonator. I believe it had something to do with the Resonator having a main shell and then an inner shell (or something like that).

that looks like a Projector in the Platinum Sparkle finish. Finnish Birch shells, beech reinforcing rings. A top of the range kit at the time, Resonators cost more but we're "different" as opposed to "better". Early 1990s vintage.
