One of a kind Rogers set

This is a cool story.

Back around 2007 a gentleman by the name of Jim came into my IL store and showed one of my staff some cell phone pics of a very cool Rogers kit. My manager sent me the pics and I communicated with Jim over the years a few times, and even sent him my personal and professional opinion as to value.

Fast forward to May 2019: Jim started thinking that perhaps it was time to find a new home for this set, so he decided to get back in touch with me. Jim relayed the back story about the kit: He bought it brand new in November 1970. He even has the original store receipt with the price, which was a whopping $1000. Of course, back in 1970 that WAS a lot of money, but not by today's standards for such a fine instrument. Jim played the set and cared for it very well, but it was such a nice set that he retired it from playing in clubs and the like and wanted to keep it pristine. So, it sat in cases for over 35 years.

So, why was I so intrigued by this set? Here's why:

- Rogers has always been my favorite of all the drums made in the 60s-early 70s.

- The set is champagne sparkle, which is one of my favorite colors, and the Rogers version of champagne sparkle is, in my opinion, the best that was ever made.

- The set had a matching wood dynasonic, and for those who know me, you know that I am a huge fan of these drums. I sold more of them than any other dealer and also spent 3 years doing R&D for the new Rogers dynasonic snares.

- The configuration "spoke to me", and the superb conditon, one owner history, and complete package with all pedals and stands made it a "must have".

The kit is two 8x12 on a double tom floor stand, one 14x14, two 14x18 bass drums (not drilled for a tom holder), and a matching 5x14 wood dynasonic snare drum, plus both bass drum pedals, two floor cymbal stands, snare stand, high hat, and factory-installed bracket for moving the high hat closer to the left bass drum pedal. The set is a true time capsule and one-of-a-kind. Factory built this way, and it looks like it left the factory yesterday.

So, I couldn't resist. And, Jim was kind enough to deliver these to me in person, making the long trip from Toronto along with his friend Gary. Here are a couple of pictures. In a couple of weeks when my traveling slows down I will do a video with this set. By the way, this is NOT for sale. This one stays with me!!!
