This just popped up in Old Saybrook, CT - Rogers 1965 4 piece 13,16,20 Holiday/Powertone BDP with hardware and cymbals $1200. If the lugs and hoops weren't so pitted up and rusty, I might have gone for it. The Rogers shells and wraps were fine. It was the metal parts. No Rogers stands - all rusty lower end stuff. 2nd Ludwig snare was a rusty 1990's 14x6.5. Sounded good though. The extra 18" tom had no badge - but looked to be Tama or even Ludwig late 70's or 80's red wrap. Very scuffy and rusted up. Lots of cleaning and upgrading parts needed. Cymbals were a mix of stuff with one of the 18's cracked (Italian 60's or 70's). New Sabian B8 hats. New DW5000 hi hat stand 2 legged. Probably a fair deal for someone who is not too much concerned with some rust and just want to play them. Probably will be gone within 24 hrs.

Owner got many texts and calls on this in the first 1-2 hours. Someone will love it. Looks much better in photos than in person. UPDATE: the seller pulled it off the market the next day. It seems the family was not yet ready to part with it.

Nice original silver sparkle later 1970s Slingerland kit up on Ebay. 12,13,16,22 and chrome snare. Original hardware, clear interiors with orig heads, Zildjian cymbals. It doesn't appear reserved so it's going to the highest bidder. Probably sells in the $750-$1250 range. Local pickup only in Eastern Ohio near the PA border. If I were inside the 150 radius I'd be considering it. Sometimes these local pickups pretty cheap. Cleveland and Columbus OH are not that far. Kit is in Steubenville, OH

Update: what a shame. Only sold for $585.

Ended at $766 - still seems a good deal; that local pick up only can really restrict the final auction price. Standard GW auctions are usually no bargain.

Hopefully someone here has a new Black Strata kit to show off!

This kit was only listed for about 48 hrs before it sold. Lots of interest of course. One owner with hardly any fading. All orig heads. Played for about 10 yrs then put away in the cases.

1969 Ludwig Super classic Silver Sparkle 12,13,16,22 with Supra, and orig Zildjian cymbals, hardware, and Ludwig vinyl cases - all bought new with the kit.....$1400. Good deal for someone.
