Default Old set of Rogers... 12, 14, 20 inch

I was wondering if you could take a look at these, and let me know, roughly what value these might have. They are not in the greatest of shape.. a little beat up; they have seen their day, if you know what I mean.
There is no snare. Just these 3 drums, and an old cymbal stand. I took a closeup shot of the old, odd-looking wing nuts on the cymbal stand.. which surprisingly work very well.
I will put a head on front of bass drum. Inside the bass drum is that tag with serial number.
Do you have any insight on these drums?
Thank you!

If the drums all have serial numbers close to the one shown, you have a '66-ish Swingtime in 20, 12, 16 configuration with the optional and less expensive Sta-tite floor tom legs and leg brackets. It looks to be in decent shape, and depending on the condition of the wrap, correctness of the parts and interior and edges might interest someone in the $1000 to $1200 range.

This setup is highly desirable though like said above the replacement of original parts looks to be an issue but certainly $1,200 is attainable. If completely original you may be upwards of $2k. Personally I'd love this kit someday if I could afford it.. Oh its the floor actually 14" or 16"? Looks 16" but the 14" is more coveted.

Apologies. It did look Like a 16 floor to. If 14, as the title indicated, then value is up a few hundred or so. A red sparkle with knobby legs on the floor tom and a knobby cymbal mount on the bass just when down on eBay for $1775 on two bids. Entry bid was $1750. It went around a first time without taking any bids

Well Blair, I just got one of those, but it's a '66. My first kit was a blue sparkle LaBoz in 1967.

No. I'd be lost behind a 24. It's a 22,13,16. I would have tried to buy JoeDrum22's set if I didn't already have a blue sparkle. I really like it, common or not. I like red sparkle a lot too.
