Rogers Black Diamond Pearl Headliner Outfit 1963 all 3-ply shells

14x20” - Holiday badge# 35407 Bread and Butter Lugs, Headliner configuration, very clean hoops.
16x14” - Holiday badge# 36197 Bread and Butter Lugs, regular hoops. Yes that is 16” deep and 14” diameter, you read correctly.
9x13” - Holiday badge# 3713(8,9 or 0) can’t read the last digit due tom mount being on the badge, tall boy hoops, beavertail lugs
16x16” - Holiday badge# 36355, tall boy hoops, beavertail lugs
24” Canister Throne - no identifying marks other than Rogers script logo. Clean inside, latches work great. Small imprint on seat top from case.

All the drums have the original heads, I was probably the first person to remove them to inspect and lightly clean. B&B lugs all have cracks. The 13” has some snare rash. Chrome is good on the set, light abrasions and minor pitting.

Asking $2500, prefer local sale and can potentially meet buyer. I can provide plenty more pictures of the drums, just ask. Story below:

Drums were posted locally by the owners brother, as he had just passed and his brother was liquidating the estate. The drums were purchased by the Father in 64’ at a local NYC music shop. The Father wanted the best kit he could buy, but at a deal of course, in the course of our discussion the brother kept using the cliche “Cadillac of drums” expression. To me, this helps explain the mismatched lugs, rare size 16x14” FT, and the fact that no swivomatic arms/spurs were present. I feel the shop cobbled together a set to sell. There were two snare stands present, explaining how the 13” was mounted, and generic gull wing spurs that fit the collets on the BD. The purchase of two 9” era correct spurs has since fixed that issue. I was sold on the 16x14” and matching canister throne. I took them home and started to clean them up and research how to fix the B&B lugs. No repair on them has been attempted, that will be left for the next owner to decide.

Beautiful drums! That bass is the Headliner configuration, not Swingtime. Headliner has the knobby cymbal mount, while the Swingtime has the collet. Also, I've never seen a paper tag go onto the re-ring like that bass shows. Peculiar.

I recently let go of a 16x14 BDP beavertail floor tom, what a drum!

The b&b's are repairable with steel stick, I've done several sets. The new owner will be very happy once completed.

Thank you for the correction.

I’m not ruling out shipping, and I’d be happy to get a quote if necessary. Also willing to meet up in the New England area.

Lots of offers to split the set up. Trying to keep together at this point.
