Muramatsu AD opinions

2651 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Peet60
Hi everyone, I'm in the market for upgrading my old and a bit more worn-out Pearl 661 abs and I came across a perfect condition (in fact, just recently overhauled) Muramatsu AD from 1989. Solid Silver headjoint, body and keywork, split E and offset G. Low C foot joint, plateau keys. Exactly what I was looking for with a steal price. I've read somewhere that this model has been superseded by current production DS. Does anyone own AD and can share some opinions and what to be careful about?

Any input will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your replies,
Szymon Łukowski

A lot of these plateau Muramatsu ship from Japan, so watch out for high shipping cost and duties.
This one is local based, only 170 miles away so I am going to pay only around $40 for personal testing

Sooooo... I've bought it about a week ago and I'm really enjoying the sound and response. The headjoint is a bit different than the Pearl and I need a bit of time to get accustomed to it, but it is much more comfortable than my previous Pearl. I'm very happy with it. Thanks for your recommendations. It was a very good idea.
