Pearl 1977-1978 - Identification Help Needed


Junior Member
Yes, I've been using those, thanks.

The kits before 1975 seem to have another bass drum spurs, and the kits after 1978 all have the 7/8 standard tom mounts... That's what leads me to the 76-77 time frame.

I think the Giant Step kit in this 1977 catalog seems to be very close

They might be fiberglass. It's hard to tell from the pics. I don't think I see any plys in the two images of the floor tom. They aren't Wood-Fiberglass. The layed in fiberglass on those is white and looks like a mesh net. The fiberglass shell I saw a pic of is grey. It was finished to look like wood inside however.
