Rogers Citation in Pink Champagne Finish drum kit Rogers Rogers Citation in Pink Champagne Finish drum kit Rogers
Rogers Rogers Citation in Pink Cha... $1,999.99
Rogers Citation in Pink Champagne Finish 20 x 14 14 x 14 12 x 8 Cleveland era Holiday shell pack with Paper tags and flat grey interior - all together from the start. These 50+ year old drums are unmodified with what appears to be all original parts.  The Rack tom and floor are very clean with typical signs of use but nothing serious. The bass drum finish has large cracks that have been glued down, drums look great and the finish appears stable.   A solid kit with a very desirable 14" floor tom. This was sold about 20 years ago in Toronto with an original logo painted band logo head that had "David Clayton Thomas and the Bossmen" on it. The head was donated to a local Museum but a letter accompanies the kit that references the head. No idea if this was used during that period but very cool to think of it as a regular on the old Yorkville scene of the 60's.

Gretsch Renown BeBop 3pc Set Piano Black drum kit Gretsch
Gretsch Gretsch Renown BeBop 3pc Se... $1,599.99
Gretsch Renown BeBop 3pc Set Piano Black Shell pack only cymbals, hardware and snare sold separately. 18 x 14 14 x 14 12 x 8  Today’s working drummers need a kit that can do it all—and do it well. Gretsch Renown is one of the most versatile drum sets ever made. Now, with one drum set, you can play with the sensitivity and touch to handle the smoothest grooves of the 1950s; the attack and projection required to drive the most powerful compositions of the 60s and 70s; and the clarity and vibrance needed to faithfully reproduce the clean studio sounds of the 80s, 90s and beyond.Renown still features the classic 7-ply Gretsch formula maple shells, with 30-degree bearing edges and exclusive “Silver Sealer” interiors. But this Renown comes with a new twist with the addition of the Gretsch's player-friendly “302” hoop—the same hoop used on Gretsch's Brooklyn and Broadkaster series drums. Gretsch 302 hoops produce the desirable focused sound like that of a die cast hoop, but are lighter in weight and less rigid, allowing the drum to better “breath” and achieve maximum resonance. The 2016 Renown delivers the traditional Gretsch sound with an incredible open, harmonic tone that supplies the versatility needed to meet the demands of the hardest working drummers.

Yamaha Yamaha D22 Black Willow Dru... $1,999.99
Yamaha D22 Black Willow Drum Kit A classic Yamaha set from the late 60's. This Black Willow finish closely resembles the popular Ludwig finish of the era. This configuration is 22x14, 13x9, 16x16 and the steel 14 x 5 Snare. Set includes almost all factory heads except for snare batter and the hardware package. Pedal, Hihat Stand, Snare Stand and Cymbal Stand.  Slight modification on the bass drum. It appears the rail mount and possibly the shell mounted cymbal holder were relocated for a lefty at one point holes plugged with chrome stove bolts. The 13 " tom has 2 diamond plates installed so the drum can be set up for either right or left handed setup with the badge oriented correctly (an unusual choice!)  Drums are in overall excellent condition for 50 plus years. Finish and chrome are excellent it appears all screws and rods are original with the exception of a few tension rod washers. This is an excellent example of a Yamaha classic D22
