    I think Pearl recently reintroduced those shells for a brief time, and from what I remember they were a real smash.

    Sorry, I don't know. But, that is a nice looking set!

    Supposedly early 1970's Rogers "Big R" 5 pc kit with higher end cymbals - and hardware - for $450. That seems like a no brainer considering the cymbals are probably worth $300 or more. After hardware and roto toms....drums are essentially free. Worth checking out for someone in the Albany, NY area.

    Update: turns out it's not a Rogers USA kit....but later. So not the deal it appeared to be. Still might be a good deal depending on how early in the 1984-1998 run these were.

    A 14” Slingy floor tom ain’t nothing to sneeze at either.

    Well duh, that was mentioned already. I’m cleaning the oven right now. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. :)

    I don’t know much about vintage Ludwigs and I don’t know if these are in good shape? Were there no badges or are they just missing?

    Guessing they were taken off when the finish was taken off. Great price for a player's/studio kit though. These drums aren't mine. Just seemed like a good deal, so I figured I'd share.
