What a beautiful Celebrity kit! I had the same, but in silver sparkle. I'm sure our moderator, Tommyp, will chime in on this one!

Thanks for the positive comments!

On a side note, I'm so happy to have found this forum -- it contains tremendous information and really helpful folks. I've learned lots about my Rogers drums and find all of the subtle nuances that unfolded over the years of production to be really fascinating.

Cheers!

Super nice kit!

The original owner's dating is probably accurate for the purchase, but it is quite possible the kit was assembled in 1970 and sold in 1971. The latest version of the labels, which says PowerTone and has a serial number of 20672, would date the set to 1970. The borderless tags were used very early in the Fullerton era and probably in 1969. The others were an attempt to use up labels for models that had been discontinued. I have a similar set that I date to 1969 because one drum has a borderless tag and the others the crossed-out/typed-in Cleveland labels.

The use of star washers, if present on the mounts and sometimes to mount the lugs, also dates it to the 1970 era.

Now we will wait for corrections by TommyP, the Ploughman and others.

Can't add much to what you wrote Dan ... sounds like you're right in there to me! Jack/Ploughman may have an additional comment or two as well I'm sure. He really has the dating down to just about infallible on Rogers drums! Otherwise ...

rstange1: BEAUTIFUL set of Rogers Celebrity's in WMP! I have a set of 1965 Rogers "Buddy Rich Celebrity's" in WMP with full/complete hardware, and have been gigging them for the past 15 years! I took them "off line" and out of the "gig zone" two years ago as I returned to my 1967/68 FIbes Buddy Rich's in COF .. but .. the Rogers are waiting, and will be back out there! I'll attach a few pics for you ... hopefully you might enjoy!

Enjoy indeed -- those are stunning! Your opening photo with the black background is a cut above what I'm used to seeing in drum brochures.
