Rogers New Old Stock 20/12/16/5x14" Drum Set - 60s WMP

See my video HERE. This is a remarkable set. There is a great back story here which I will share with you. This set is a Dayton era 8x12, 16x16, 14x20, 5x14 Powertone snare all in WMP. The incredible story is this: This drum set is New Old Stock. I have a long personal connection to this set and some others. I first saw this set over 20 years ago. It was sitting in a music store owned by an interesting gentleman who had purchased a huge amount of instruments in the 60s, and never sold many of them. This set had been in the store since it was delivered new circa 1965. It has never been played and includes the original heads. I had wanted to purchase this set and other items many years ago but wasn't able to. I did, however, purchase my first wood Dynasonic snare from this dealer, and it was a rare pre-badge in WMP and was also New Old Stock. I paid way more than market value for that, but it was a thrill. Anyhow, I was recently able to acquire this set and some others, all of which were in the store back when I first visited, and most of which are New Old Stock. 

This set is obviously a wonderful example of what I consider to be the best built drums of the 60s. The set has never been sold and never been played. Since it had sat unused for about 54 years, it was dirty so we cleaned it up and it looks great. The tone controls are frozen and have rust on them. You often see rust on lug screw heads and other internal parts on older Rogers. These tone controls could be set in oil and cleaned up, but it would actually be easier just to put on the new Rogers tone control which is an exact replica, but we are leaving the set as-found. You can get the old ones working again with some oil and a little TLC. Snare strainer a bit stiff and tention knob needs oil from the years and needs to be disassembled and oiled, but again, we are leaving it as-is for history sake (you also could replace the strainer with the new Rogers clockface which is an exact replica).

To me, the fact that this set hasn't been played and is in the same condition as it was when delivered 54 years ago makes me think that this should really be the cornerstone of a collection rather than a gigging kit.  I think it is probably a very safe assumption to say that you won't find another one. And, considering that you would probably pay at least $2000-$2200 for a used set like this, our price is very good here.
