That looks like a 1960's Japanese knockoff set. During the Beatle Boom, there was a huge thirst for drums and not everyone could afford a Ludwig or Slingerland set, so these knockoffs were popular. That set looks to be made by Pearl. They weren't high quality drums. Unfortunetly, there isn't a huge desire for them on the vintage market, so they have little value. I started with a set just like that, rail mount and all. The snare is a newer Ludwig Supraphonic though.
