matching 5x14" "Powertone" snare drum.
All details i.e., Beaver tail
lugs, bass drum Bow tie T-rods & claws, "Swiv-O-Matic

"Powertone" Jet Black
Pearl snare drum
5x14", eight Beavertail
lugs, w/"Clock face" strainer, all original and complete
(including both heads & snare wires). Snare drum stand not
extra mount (not Rogers) on
bass drum. However, a Rogers "Swiv-O-Matic" disappearing
internal cymbal holder #331R could easily be installed at this
point. Thus, making it all Rogers.
Original Silver Sparkle bass
hoop inlays are intact (not attached in the bass hoop routes
as shown) but faded to the usual 'ginger ale' shade.
at some time this drum set
was covered with contact paper! So, by and large, while the contact
paper protected the black pearl finish, there are some after
effects i.e., all three small metal grommets are missing (see
photo of tom tom just below tone control knob), all three script
badges have been reattached just slightly off their original
position and, there are three (3) concentric and one (1) lateral
scratch(s) on the bass drum.
the 14x14" floor tom (shown)
IS NOT a Rogers "Holiday" drum.
The only other Rogers jazz
set I've seen like this was the first time I went to hear Steve
Gadd play in 1971. But, he used a matching wood Dyna-sonic snare
