Correct hoops - check
Correct t. rods - check
strainer - check

Looks all there and correct to me and a nice early serial with a muffler option. With that low serial number might even be the desirable 3 ply shell. Do you have the matching kit? I have the same and it really plays well. Enjoy!

Thanks fellows.. a labor of love for sure!

Yes, I do have the Tower kit to match that snare... the fade is a little different on the kit... it's leaning just toward gingerale and away from brilliant silver. The snare must have been in a case most of it's life. The kit is 20-12-14, that is a sweet kit and I now play it almost exclusively..

Glad you completed your kit. Can you post a photo of your Tower kit? Those Rogers 14s are great little drums.

Before and after on the kit.. Thanks for the nice comments.. sincerely it's just real nice to hear that.

Next project.. I've had a red sparkle Radio King snare and matching 22" Slingy bass drum sitting on the shelf for about a year (maybe more) I really need to finish building that kit.. need to find those toms!

I've also had a nice early "red muffler" Acro sitting for some time that I really want to get cleaned up...it's a real mess.
