This is a great deal. I remember when Pearl came out with these in the 90's. Fine drums, and really, a poor man's Supra.
That was their appeal to me at that time.
They claimed to sound like a Supra.
Pretty stinkin close

The throw-off on this one is really nice. Much nicer than on my Supra. If I didn't already have a Supra, an Acro, and my beloved Oriollo manganese snare, I would keep this one for certain. (Got it in a deal along with a cymbal.)

Had one. Loved it. Sold it. Regretted it.

It's a solid well built drum.

I actually stripped mine of all parts and put them on a COB Dynasonic shell. I had to widen the lug holes a tad and I screwed up and mis-drilled the throw off by one panel (DOH!!), but made a sweet drum out of it. Definitely good parts back then.
I even have a 70's Slingy Krupa COB shell modded by John Craviotto back in the day - he did something with the bearing edges (I am told) and tossed the tombstone throw for a Pearl!
