Yup. Very cool. Lots of mounts--would love to see a matching snare hanging from that bass. Rogers could really build 'em back then..marko

That seller has a lot of restorations, he bought a Rogers tom from me a while back and I saw it back on eBay at a higher price not too long after.

Gobs of snares... if you don't already have some, get some Acrolites.

I have no drums made in this century, and I'm quite pleased about that...

I would agree that when Mardi Gras was originally offered, I would certainly have passed it up. Now that it's vintage and no longer available, it's definitely cool! Funny how our tastes change over the decades!

Almost any finish to the Mardi Gras. To me it looks cheesy but if i saw it in a local sale i would pick it up to flip it.
