Well said.

I have never had seller's remorse for drum sets that I used to own. But, I really would like to have another set of vintage drums in the same wrap--preferably Slingerland or Leedy.

I've noticed that Rogers did seem to struggle more with that particular version of strata than the others.

A beautiful kit for sure! In regards to the air vents, the toms didn't come with them until around 1966. A previous owner was just compelled to add vents to these toms. While the air vents chosen aren't Slingerland style, at least they are the big die-cast vents, which would look out of place on the toms. And, at least they are positioned towards the back of the toms, which was a thoughtful touch! As to the grommet on the bass drum, it's hard to say why it was changed out, but the badge is most likely original. I love the smooth shell COB GK snare drum! I've got the same one for my 1965 Modern Solo...with no badges on the toms!
