    Hi all,due to financial concerns I have to sell my Rogers 1966/67 wmp cleveland/dayton kit,20 12 14,will describe each peice for valuation,and would like some advice on where and how to sell.

    To start wrap is in great shape,no x holes some non original lug screws,even fade throughout.Fading is to more of a cream color rather than yellow or green.Bought all drums as a set and pretty sure they came as a set.

    20 x 14 cleveland ,slight dip in the reso bearing edge,drum tunes well and holds tuning.

    14 ft dayton flat grey int with original stay tite mounts.

    12 tom has dip in batter side bearing edge,and is a little finicky,for some reason tunes best and holds tuning best with pin stripe heads.

    Just a thought. Do you have the "swivo" tom arm.
    Rogers dudes really love all that "swivo" stuff.
    Nice kit sir.

    The floor tom is worth $900 to $1100, by itself, so $1500 for the entire kit is a little on the low side. If you have the tom arm, then $1700 to $1800 is not unreasonable.

    Rogers folk are sticklers for condition. When you talk dips in the bearings, non original t-rods, it'll bring down expectations a little. The all important swivomatic tom arm is a plus. It all depends on if you want a quick sale or it you wait it out for the big payday that may or may not come... still a buyer's market. Last year I sold a 20/14/12/14 - yep that's with a Powertone, all matching Cleveland shells in beautiful black onyx pearl, to fund a project. I gave someone a very good deal at $1600! But as stated, I was motivated. If you have the room keep them or bide your time. Something very special about those 20" bass drums!

    700 Floor
    150 - 175 tom
    300 bass
    add another 100 if you have the swivo tom arm

    Pics of the bearing edge dip? Did you mean tension rods,or the actual lug screws? Have you pulled a lug on the FT to see that it wasn`t a b&b originally? Thanks.
