Rogers fans ! This is a mid 60s era Rogers Holiday set in the very sought after Grey Ripple finish ! 22 bass, 13 tom and a 16 floor tom and a beautiful Dyna- Sonic snare in great shape comes with it ! The sound of that snare alone is amazing ! The snare is a later date than the set but I am not sure by how much.
The set is in mint shape, very minor marks here and there. All the paper labels are inside, alongside the grey seal (original post said black seal, hence the discussion below :) ) . This is a must see for any drummer but collectors will love this one as well ! It does not have the tom mount but the mounting plates, also the cymbal mount on the bass drum are all there.

$1695USD plus the shipping costs !
Let me know !

Ok,I give up...what`s the black seal?
The paint inside the shell, like the Gretsch silver seal idea. Maybe it is grey. Looks blackish to me. I don't know :) All legit shells from that era has the seal as far as I know.

Murat, is the "black seal" the same color in all the drums as what you show, above, as the inside of the 13"? In general, we call that gray - er, "grey" - paint. There's also a grey speckled version. I've got a feeling you don't see too many Rogers kits up in Canada-land.

From what I know, you have a desirable set there: beavertails on a 22" in the Cleveland/Dayton era were not that common, and that is a super-quality era for Rogers.

What we really need is Dan C. to look in on this...

Looks like a nice kit, good color on the wrap, very little fade, if any. The flat grey inside is the way they all came in the Cleveland era. These drums are around 1965. Looks like all correct parts too...
DanC is correct about the paint. It is flat grey. Very early 60's shells, with B&B lugs, had black paint. Powertone snare drums had gloss grey paint.

I have seen a couple of these in way worse shape before but somehow always thought it was a black paint but when I look at it now, it is definitely grey :) I will change the original post . All drums have the same solid grey, no speckles.
The owner took great care with this drum. Very impressive.

The quality of used kits that come through your shop never ceases to amaze me.
Thank you Sir ! The thing is, it is a choice I made at the beginning and I am trying to stick to it as much as I can and that is, I do not want junk in the shop. I know I am losing some business because of that , refusing certain trades and such , but I want people to look at my used inventory and say "Holy crap, I cannot even tell this set is used !" or something similar. Couple that with good value, it has been working great so far. :)

That is one sublime set of drums! I wonder: where the plate covers (I used to own some of these) are, could you replace them with Swivo tom mounting hardware, without drilling any holes?

Beautiful set!

Can someone explain, the purpose behind painting the inner shells?
Why is that practice not carried on today..?

Curious mind..
