Default early 70's Pearl? what else?

ignore the hardware, do these red drums look like early 70's Pearl to anybody? The lugs look wrong to me (almost Sonor like)
If not, does anybody recognize those lugs? The bass drum is also 10 lug, so not cheap MIJ.

listed as '70's Pearl'

By the bulkiness of the lugs, and bass claws, and floor tom mounts it seems to be 70s/80s. As far as Pearl, that's tough. The lugs kind of look like those old clunky sonor lugs I've seen a few times. The pic is too small, and angle isn't revealing. Is that a red lacquer or wrap? Hard to tell that as well.

Can't really see the picture clearly enough to recognise the lugs, Pearl were using the old coffin style lugs back in the 70's.

CB700 "wristwatch" lugs...

I always wonder about ads that try to "upsell" a kit, 'tho those probably WERE made by Pearl; why not just call them what they are?

This is correct. I think they are from later than the early 70's though. Both Pearl and CB700 kits had hexagon tom mounts in the early 70's, the Pearls being a bit more robust. It is hard to tell from the small pic, but it looks like the toms accept the 7/8" tube that Pearl switched to, which was around 1974. At oldest I'd say mid 70's, but I think it is younger than that still.

I have a mid 70s Pearl kit, and Ive seen 70s catalogs. I've never seen these lugs. They could have been replaced, like I did when they started breaking.

Around 1966, Pearl started using the name "Pearl" for their top end kit. They did, however, continue to make drums called Maxwin, CB-700, Stewart, Werco, Ideal, Crest, Revelle, Revere, Lyra, Majestic, Whitehall, Apollo, Toreador, Roxy, and Coronet. And a few others.

Yes exactly. They are for sure not the 'coffin lugs' you see in all the Pearl ads of the late 60's early 70's. The ads pics are not great but they do look exactly like 'wristwatches'.

Reason I ask is its a super cheap deal for all the hardware included. I don't really need the kit but it looked in decent shape and had many add ons.

thanks all.

"lots for cheap"?

how can you lose?

Those CBs are likely to be alright... decently constructed from inexpensive materials
