    Ringo kit up for sale

    Looked like an honest description when I saw it on Dave's website this morning. Knew it would sell fast. The price on Dave's website is CDN$ and the Reverb price was likely US$ depending on where you live.

    What constitutes a “complete” kit?

    Probably not what the OP was looking for in a response, but added here for humour/interest value: I Jeff Hamilton playing something less than a "complete" kit, but he certainly does the music justice. :)

    Can We Talk About Using Vintage Instead of Modern Drums in Live Settings?

    I had my late '60s Rogers kit out for a couple of big band gigs for the first time last summer. All period correct hardware except the throne and same with cymbals save for a couple of Bettis gems.

    Longtime drummers. How common was it

    Probably the early 70s when I started taking notice and mostly remember Ludwig and Premier in the drum shops of the day.

    What drum hardware have you been surprised by?

    Original Rogers Swivo-matic hardware is surprisingly robust and functional considering how delicate it looks compared to modern gear. I've done OK with most DW hardware except for easily stripped memory locks on the Ultralight snare and hi-hat stands. Yamaha almost always surprises me in a...

    Does anyone own a New Rogers Wood Dynasonic Snare Drum? What are your thoughts?
