Pearl Export Deep Series --What Kind of Wood?

by Rick Gonzales
(Visalia, Calif.)

I can not find any chart or discriptive of the type of

select wood used on my 1985 Pearl Export 5500 Deep drums. all the data i can find is that they are
"9 ply Select Wood w/ Acousti-Coat Sealer"
Is there a chart or material description available?
What value would they be considered. Good Condition.


Hi, Rick--

Before 1994, these drums are most likely 8 plies of mahogany (luan) with a inner ply of Birch.

Sorry, but we have no way of pricing used drum kits.
