So while working at my old job selling auto parts my delivery driver called in and said he found a set of drums on the side of the road with a free sign on them . I immediately told him to load them up and bring them to the shop . I was expecting a crappy set of drums that I could maybe score some parts from . Turned out to be a blessing in disguise . To my driver they looked like they were worthless with the rust on the rims but I new better . Anyways a mid 70's kit with a 60's Rogers Snare drum still haven't been able to id the maker of the kit although the tom arms and three way clamp are Pearl . All the rims I am going to clean up and have a nice vintage spare kit . Not bad for free .
