    ^what DanC. said.
    Look for USA on the badges. Like these.

    Avoid "Rogers" drums with this badge. No silvery outline/border is one clue it's imported.

    Thanks for the helpful info Dan & Steven. Hope I can return the favor some day!
    Just checked and the kit does have USA serial numbered badges. The snare? I'd shine it up and give it to an instructor friend who has found homes for other snares I've come across. There's always a kid that can use a drum for practice.

    I was going to write this, but Dan beat me to it! Easiest way to check from afar is whether the bass drum spurs are bent tubes stuck out the side. Those are Rogers USA (See pics in this thread). If they telescope out in front like newer drums, they are NOT Rogers USA vintage Big Rs.
