Vintage Rogers Drum Set - Rare Mardi Gras Wrap-Original:
$3,050

NO RESERVE sale - sale

I bought this drum set from the original owner a few years ago. His parents bought it for him for Christmas 1963. This set is in the very rare Mardi Gras warp. The condition of the wrap on this set is in excellent, unfaded and in undamaged condition with tight seams and only a few light scratches.

The chrome is also beautiful with no pitting and showing only light use. This kit was made in the transitional time when Rogers was using both the earlier style bread and butter lugs and the later beaver tail lugs. The 12 inch mounted tom and the 16 inch floor tom on this set have beaver tail lugs. The 20 inch bass drum and 5X14 inch snare drum have bread and butter lugs. This practice was not uncommon for Rogers in the early 1960’s.

The bread and butter lugs on the share drum have been replaced by new JP2 Creations bread and butter lugs (jp2creations@yahoo.com). It is rare that you find a vintage Rogers snare drum with undamaged B&B lugs. JP2 Creations lugs are considered the industry standard for B&B lug replacements. These lugs are heavily chrome plated and much stronger than the original Rogers B&B lugs. Minus the replaced snare lugs this drum kit is all original.

All of the drums are excellent inside and out. The drum interiors have untouched grey painted interiors with Cleveland label in all four drums – the screws are even untouched. The serial numbers are: bass drum # 30386, mounted tom, #37432, floor tom #38801 and snare #26292

. The bass drum hoops have been cleaned up and the silver sparkle hoop decoration was replaced correctly. There is a couple feet of the original silver sparkle hoop decoration for an example. The bass drum has a Ludwig rail mount to hold the 12” tom. The tom also has the corresponding Ludwig mounting bracket to fit on the rail mount. I questioned the owner about the Ludwig rail. He assured me that the Ludwig rail mount was original from the drum shop and this is the way the drums have always been mounted. The interior mounting screws for these brackets also appear to be untouched and original as do all of the drums screws. I talked to Bobby Chaisson of Jolity Drum Farm (durmfarm.com) about this Ludwig rail mount. Bobby is a drum authority and especially knows and loves Rogers drums. He assured me that rail mounts from other manufacturers were occasionally used on Rogers Drums – not unheard of! No doubt it was installed at the drum shop as the original owner had told me.

All in all this is a wonderful drum kit. I have been playing it in the studio over the last few years. It sounds great with a warm but very responsive snare drum, plenty of punch from the 20 inch bass drum and a nice 12” & 16” tom combo. All of the heads have been recently replaced and are ready to play. It’s hard to believe that this is nearly a 50 year old drum set. Don’t miss this opportunity to score a rare classic American set ready to play with class!
