first Rogers drum kit


Hello all,I've been lurking the VDF for a few years now and happy to be here. The day after Christmas I saw an ad on CL for an old Ludwig kit,$250 for 5 drums 4 stands and cymbals,very dirty. So I jumped on it. Low and behold it turned out to be a black Holiday kit,chrome Cleveland power tone #12901 ,all the rest is Dayton 112551 ish. 12,13,16 and 20 , 3 swan leg cymbal stands w/tilters,swan leg hi-hat ,matching snare stand and bass pedal.16 and 18 crashes and 14 hats,all Zildjian late 60's early70's all stamped Drums LTD.,Chicago.
  Happy 62nd Christmas birthday to me.
 Can't wait to clean and polish these poor neglected tubs.I may just be a new convert from Slingerland and Leedy to Rogers.
  My first Cadillacs.

Re: first Rogers drum kit


I took some pictures this a.m.,kinda jumped the gun and didn't take any befores, eager to get going. I actually bought them just to flip but I became intrigued with the shell construction and hardware flexibility and strength. I now understand why the swiv-o-matic hardware was such an advancement and choice of drummers of the time.These are staying put. Can't stop smiling.
