Exclamation 60's Rogers Powertone White Marine Pearl 5 piece

Got this set when I first started playing drums about 15 years ago. When I showed my then drum teacher he told me to never sell the set, and buy a different one to play on.

but...I need the money, and these have been in storage for a while.

Over all the set is in really good condition. Only spots of mild surface rust that I was able to polish of with some chrome polish. There are a couple of hairline cracks on the hardware that holds up the two small toms, but it is only visible when looking closely. The only major flaw is that the large tom has started to yellow which is pictured below.

Selling:
12" small rack tom (serial number is pictured below)
13" medium rack tom
16" floor tom
22" Bass Drum
14" Dynosonic Chrome snare
Snare stand (not original, but hey it still holds the snare)
Original rogers base drum pedal

$3000 OBO

to VDF...
Yr guru was right about u having a great kit...
Good luck,..

It's most likely a 1971 model...
Maybe the Dyn"A"sonic snare is missing the bridge for underneath..?
Pls add some pics of the snare..(serial # )..
Also the paper tag inside every shell..?

Also, yr asking price is ...mmmmm....on the High side..!
These kits (Fullertone made) in great shape (not missing anything) & wrap matching all around..usually can fetch about $1100/1400US.

If they were older ..I.e. Cleveland or Dayton made (63/69) there generally worth more,
Also if the Bassdrum was a 24" or 18" or the floor tom was a 18" or 14"...
You could expect more coin as well...

to the forum!

I have to agree with the above post about pricing. Two issues right off: the Dynasonic appears to be missing the bridge. The floor tom wrap has really yellowed in relation to the other drums.

Thanks for the reply.

The price was a guess when I thought it was a 60's kit.

I do have the bridge for the snare drum. I'll try to repost with more pictures, serial numbers, and what not.

Even with the yellowed tom, you think it could fetch ~$1.5k if serial numbers checked out?

Sell the Dynasonic on its own for $350.
The kit for 850/900.

All the best ..

Rims n Skins is guiding you true nicostu. All info regarding price and condition has been spot on and exactly what you can expect from this market. It's a shame the floor tom wrap doesn't match the rest of the kit better, it would bring you more bucks.

Best of luck with your sale...

John
