Really nice looking kit. eBay? Craig's List? How do you like the vintage thin shell sound?

Wow, very clean. I haven't seen swivel-o-matic hardware for a long time.

That was the hot ticket back in the day.

Nice kit!

If I had been playing drums 30 years ago and wanted to buy a kit, it would be a Rogers, hands down! Their Swiv-O-Matic hardware is way better than anything else that the other drum companies had at the time (who else can you name that had a ball-and-socket tom holder?!), so much so that drummers like Ginger Baker and Keith Moon had their kits fortified with Rogers tom mounts, even though they played other brands. Yet I digress...!
The koa finish is my favorite that I have ever seen on a Rogers kit, and the Fiberskyn head on the 13 inch tom complements the color of the wood very well ( I would suggest outfitting the entire kit with them, but that's just my opinion). Enjoy your new tubs!

I havn't had a chance to give them a test drive, but I will. I asked my girlfriend if I could keep The Mapex along with the Rogers because they both have different qualities I like. I told her the Mapex has that modern sound that I want at times and the hardware is phenominal, but the Rogers has that classy look and vintage sound. I told her the Mapex look pretty, but the Rogers look cool. She looked me straight in the eyes and said "baby, I love you, but, nooooooooooooo! Ouch, oh well, didn't hurt to try, so for now it's, good bye new kit hello old kit, until I get that itch again, has anyone seen the calamine lotion? He, he.

May I ask why you are needing your girlfriends permission to keep a kit?

Well problem solved............. get that new kit up and for sale Immediately. you should be able to easily ask $12,500.95 for the modern kit. When no one bites.... Hey man, you tried. ;)

Rogers set looks great.
