Default 1968 Pearl Valencia's

Just thought I would share my newest finished project. It's not perfect, just made to be a player's kit. Very deep sounding drums, they are 3 ply with re-rings.

Nice job!
I recently saw one of those kits on eBay, could that be the one that I saw?

Thanks, and no I think I'll keep it for a while, not the kit on ebay. It took alot of work, I had to find all the tension rods, hoops, spur's, and do alot of wood repair. So the it has grown on me :) I saved it from someone's basement, a family of mice made a home in the bass drum lol.

I was thinking that you bought the kit that I saw.
It was a few months ago that I saw it for auction.

Ive never seen a 6 lug bass drum before. How does it tune up? And what are the sizes?

It tunes up fine imo. I get a really great punchy sound from it, with the aquarian sk1 and the fiberskyn reso, and nothing inside.

The sizes are 14x20 BD, 8x12 TT, 14x14 FT and 6x14 SD.

Thanks for the comments
