I remember when those first came out,I think pearl was trying to offer a vintage looking modern drum,mid late 90's?the wraps were vintage looking,but like the first wave of asian kits a lot of the wraps were a little different from their euro/american counterparts,I believe they were considered and priced as a lower professional line,and that the hardware was brass plated steel I think,I can't remember the shell construction details though.I don't think they sold that well in the U.S. and the price looks like around 300.00 american dollars,and even though it is probably a nice drum,the pearl stuff is not bringing near the price that used pro tama and yamaha is bringing,so in my world that is a 175.00 U.S. dollar drum at best.Just my opinion though.

Thats a decent drum and worth the 200eu price tag. That is bulletproof hardware and diecast hoops, matched with Pearl Masters shell. It's a kickass drum if you ask me, though I can;t stand plastic wraps personally....
