The beloved Stewart “Fantasia Pearl” kit. We have come across 3 of these kits and we love each one! We have two of them in our collection still and have moved one to Newfoundland. The “Fantasia Pearl” wrap is a rare one indeed, not quite as rare as the “Peacock Pearl”, but still hard to find especially in great condition.
This kit was shipped to us from Ottawa by a an extremely kind seller on Kijiji. A rare 5-piece kit (two upper toms – 12″ and 13″) kit in extremely great condition. The ad photos do not do the kit justice…when it arrived, it had a lifetime of build up on it of dirt and grime, but with a little restoration work…we got the kit looking new again.
Since the restoration photos were done, we have acquired two “Fantasia Pearl” snares. One through eBay and the other in Halton Hills, ON. We currently have one “Fantasia Pearl” kit able to be configured in multiple ways (12″ left handed mount, 13″ right handed mount, 13″ left handed mount)…allows for a 12″, 16″, 20″ and snare 4-piece configuration, 13″, 16″, 20″ and snare 4-piece configuration or a 12″, 13″, 16″ 20″ and snare 5-piece configuration. It’s the most versatile kit in our collection aside from a rewrapped Vintage 60’s Black Oyster kit we have set-up.
