If so which version?

It's taken me twenty years but I have a pretty close version of the Silver Sparkle one.

Will try to get one sorted in a while, the Bass drum is a 24" instead of 26" and some of the cymbal stands are different, but it's pretty close to his 1981 kit, with same tom sizes but a couple of different cymbals

The snare is wooden which makes a difference, it has much rest resonance than a metal one but if tuned right gives a pretty deep thud, sounds best when played with a rim-shot.
