I would keep the WFL. Gotta love the sound of those old mahogany poplar 3-ply shells. Rogers just sound boxy to me in comparison. Plus, if you sell the Rogers, you'll make more money over the WFL.

So, you think the Rogers are worth more?

Historically, Rogers seem to bring more $$ than WFL drums do. Now if they had the Ludwig name instead of WFL, the WFL drums would be worth more. Collectors are fickle that way.

Which kit do you like to play? Which kit meets your sound need?

None of the above. Keep them both. Very different sounds from each kit.

I'd keep the WFL's, too. That's a great kit, from a unique era of American drums. Like has been said, old mahogany.....marko

I'd prefer keeping the Rogers only because I have a 1968 silver sparkle Ludwig in the same sizes and believe or not, they sound very similiar. One of them has to go for financial reasons.

If one has to go for financial reasons, I'd say part with the Rogers as, like I said above, you'll get more for them.
