Wow I'm impressed. Love the blue kit. I don't see Rogers kits very much did they stop making them?
CBS had the magic touch in destroying Rogers. CBS bought them and thought they could push Rogers in the same way they pushed Fender guitars. Rogers then went thru several ownerships and I think that they are currently owned by Yamaha which ironic since Yamaha's Tom arms are essentially taken from the Rogers Swiv-o-matic design.

Kansasdrummer, .... what color Big R? post some pics.

The green sparkle set are Big R 1980 XP8 shells.

And theres this, my first drumset, which I still have and play, since 1979.

Man, I don't know how good you are, but I'd go see you play just to see those drums, simply gorgeous.

Thank you for the comment. I fell in love with that finish the first time I seen it. It took me years to find a kit in good shape in that color. Im a lucky man.
