    Found this kit today and its unbelievably clean the eight lug 6.5 snare is the gem of this deal and all the tags are really close numerically in the 19xxx range. Gonna need some lugs replaced and its amazing the condition of the wrap!

    Unbelievable. I have never seen a Holiday snare that vintage in that size. The whole kit is a prize...

    Is it a Holiday snare, or early Powertone? A 6.5 PT with B&B lugs is a real rarity. 6.5 Holiday too, actually...

    Tag inside snare says Holiday all serial numbers are fairly close. After days of researching and talking to various collector friends I have a feeling this is an extremely rare find! And all I can think about is how bad I wanna play it!!!!

    I got my first professional quality drum set in 1961. I selected the drums for the set from the Rogers catalog at Foster Music in Hammond, Indiana. I had no trouble deciding on the sizes of the Holiday model drums that were pictured most often in the book for four piece Rogers drum sets--8x12, 16x16, 14x20, and a matching 5x14 Holiday snare drum. I also had no trouble in knowing that I wanted Swivomatic receivers on the bass drum for the small tom and the snare drum to my left, a ride cymbal to my right, and the bass drum spurs. I also knew that I wanted the one piece foot board Swivomatic bass drum pedal. What took me the most time to select was the color of the drums. I wanted to have a different color than what most other drummers I saw playing. I finally decided on Black Diamond Pearl. The drums were in like new condition when I traded them in on a new drum set a few years later. In retrospect, I wish that I would have kept them over all these years. But, I didn't know anyone who had more than one drum set. The new Avedis Zildjian cymbals I bought between 1958, and while I owned the Rogers set have remained with me since I bought them. Here they are on stage with The Exports in 1963 at Madura's Danceland. This was a Big Band era ballroom in Hammond, indiana where Hammond and Chicago, Illinois meet on the southern shore of Lake Michigan.
