Pour kerosene, light match, and burn.


Run away. Run away very fast, naked and screaming if necessary, but run.

Looks pretty but what the hell is it? I guess it was made during the final death bead moments of Rogers when they were importing the cheap made kit's from the east. Is that hardware made of plastic?
You can own the greatest drum ever made, but it won't change how well you can play it!

The series II Rogers was their worst marketing fiasco in the entire history of the company. The original designs were good enough, and if properly implemented, could have produced an entry level kit for an affordable price that would have been highly competitive with the import market. However, that was not the case. Cost cutting production measures, and an impractical use of plastic parts in construction of the drums, produced a line so filled with fatal flaws that within days of a sets sale, they were being returned to the stores. It took no time at all for dealers to begin refusing acceptance of orders and the company was left with a huge loss due to product failure.
Further information can be gleaned from the Rogers Book, by Rob Cook, 2nd ed.

But in a way this makes this piece of ++++ rather collectable, it may be super rare. A bit like the Delorean Car?

This is in the wall hanger category. You could not play them. And there are very very few people who would buy them, even cheaply.
