That is a late 60's/early 70's D-20, or D-22 (depending on the kick size) in Red Ripple.

Killer birch kits, that were ahead of their time, which stood proud above the stencil kits usually made in Japan.

Very neat hardware and complete set too. If you put that in a cola bath for a night, then brush it off with a tooth brush it should shine again.

I agree with the above (s) ..... should be a very cool kit.

Hi there. I just wanted to share some pics of the kit. It is really a nice kit, and this is so well preserved that it hurts. I believe it is as close to near mint as 50 year kit can be so this may also be useful for future reference

As a bonus, the cymbals are avedis :)

Thanks for the help and the info. I believe it is an early 70s kit as the hardware is different than the ones in the 1969 catalog

Nice. And all the hardware seems to be in good shape, too. Looks like a sweet, complete package.
