Everything there looks brand new, almost pristine. Is that the original Green Glass Glitter wrap or a rewrap? Can you tell us any more about this particular set?

Thanks for sharing. That green Dyna alone was worth the price of admission.

Hi Mike
Thanks for the info. I'm not as up on the Rogers as I am the Ludwig's but I knew this kit was amazing the second I saw it.
Drums are from a collector here in SoCal who I've become friends with. I've gotten several kits from him already. All incredible.
So a collector to collector sale if you will.
And there is more coming as he "thins out the herd" over time. I've been waiting for these since I first laid eyes on them about 4 years ago.
They are all original as are all my kits. I opted to take all the drums he had and there is still one more 12" tom. I will be keeping this green family together for many years. That's my plan anyway.
I've been very fortunate and my friend can rest easy knowing his treasures have fallen into the best hands possible. I posted some interior shots of the tags but have not gotten too crazy with the pics yet. All the interiors are the flat grey.

The Dyna is sn-3557 any guesses on the year?

And regarding the "you may want to replace those Fullerton cast collet noses with the earlier machined noses" can you post a pic of the difference? I had no idea that later hardware was on there so thank you.

There's a pic from the gig on Saturday night too. Man, they sounded REALLY good!

Thanks all as well. I appreciate all the input. I'm still learning too.
