A rare haul of US Rogers here in the UK. A 14" floor tom & a 20"x18" bass drum that it look's like was a floor tom conversion
The bass drum has Premier spurs I think the tom mount has also been replaced, it's a mix of Rogers are generic Japanese. A Premier Resonator tom in the same colour came with it along with some mixed hardware, a Hamma steel snare, some cymbals, but also a lovely Rogers hi hat. I've wanted one for some time as I play a '72 Fullerton in my big band, called the Big R Big Band funnily enough. The snare pictured is a Slingerland Artist I already owned.
Not sure what I'll do with it, I love the colour and the floor tom is a beauty. Will see if there's any interest in the 20" FT to BD conversion and if not I'll have the bass drum cut down to half its size by a local drum builder. Chaps, your thoughts please.
