Default Is this a Rogers Drumset?

Hi sonorfan!

This appears to be a Pearl kit from the 70's, with Swivo tom legs and bass drum brackets. The tom holder is a 70's Slingerland Setomatic. The shells may be fiberlass! Not sure if the wrap is original, due to the vertical grain pattern. Pearl did offer a finish like this, but with a horizontal grain pattern. Really need to see the kit up close and personal to make a determination!

Looking more closely at the bass drum leg brackets, they do not appear to be Rogers Swivo units.

-Mark

Rogers drums of that would have grey interiors. Believe the lugs are MIJ imation of Beavertails - slightly bulged in the center - hard to tell from pictures. Ifthey are Rogers, someone went to a lot of expense and trouble to make imitation drums. BD and FT have swivomatic mounts with generic legs.

That's some other brand of shells with Rogers and Slingerland hardware. If you can get them cheap and use them for practice, maybe you'll want them. If not, walk away. I wouldn't buy them, but that's just me.

I agree with Mark's assessment. Additionally, the internal damper on the 8x12(?)isn't Rogers and there looks like a air-vent without a grommet the 9x13(?) On one picture the FT the bracket looks like pre-Fullerton with the hint of a gap shown in the reflection of the base plate. The other FT pic looks more like a Fullerton...hard to tell from the pics. The FT legs are not Rogers and I suspect the finish is contact paper. A look inside will reveal the mystery.

They almost look like Phonic shells. See what appears to be book matched veneer inside ? Who else did that ?

Just a complete guess because the pics are too far away.
