Yamaha Power V Special

Anyone have any experience with these drums? I’m looking at a set that was made in England, I assume at Premier’s factory? What kind of wood etc.? Thanks!
As the owner of a Yamaha Power V Special kit made in England, I was really hoping someone would weigh in on this, since I know next to nothing about them, and there isn't a ton of info online.

I had a Power V Special kit in the mid-90'ies, but it said made in Japan on them, I guess they started to produce them there instead when they stopped their collaboration with Premier during the 90'ies. But I am almost certain that these drums were the predecessor to the Stage Custom, and I think it had close to the same wood types, birch, phillipine mahogany and falkata wood. Was a nice kit, have fond memories of it :).
