Default Wacky Weekend Rogers/Slingy/First Act/Hohner Score!

Saw an ad on Craigslist over the weekend asking $250.00 for a Rogers Powertone which is not really that smoking a deal. But as I started clicking on the pictures I noticed some Black and Silver Niles Drums laying around with parts missing. I figured it couldn't to hurt ask if the sale included everything in the picture and it did! Not just the old Slingy's but some really beat up MIJ and First Act Stuff that was actually some of the Slingy and Rogers Hardware on it and vice versa! Ha! So here is the good, the bad and the ugly!

Here is the whole lot:


Rogers Fullerton Era Powertone in great shape with a MIT top hoop and First Act 14 inch kick drum heads on it!





The Slingy's appear to be part of an early 70's Avante Kit! Looks like they were originally maple finish as they still have some of the coating and they all have an M stamp on the interior of each drum. No extra holes! but there is a bad ding in the 13 that will need some filler.





Swivo Clutch on the beat up MIJ Hi Hat! Score!!

One half Slingy T's One Half M.I.J.

One Slingy Hoop and one ?...maybe Rogers.



Found some of the missing Slingy Lugs and the missing Slingy Floor Tom leg and bracket!





Thought the Japanese Beavertail Lug as a tilter nut was a nice touch!

Wow, that lot for $250? You made out. Q: did Rube Goldberg own that kit?

Thanks everyone! I actually think I have just about all the missing Slingy parts covered in my spare parts. Funny to think I came to this site to research the parts I needed to put an 1 old Dynasonic I found back together and now I have enough random spare parts around to complete projects like this!
