    I own a set of Rogers drums. They still make concert percussion, but I haven't seen any sets out recently. Anything pre-80's is gold. The newer production line is not as good. If you own an aluminum snare, you better take real good care of that baby. Rogers was one of the first companies to use an aluminum shell for a snare drum. That could sell for about $800, easily. The best source for history, etc. of Rogers is "Not So Modern Drummer" magazine. They usually have monthly feature on vintage drums, and Rogers is the flagship of vintage percussion.

    I have a Roger's set. It consist of:
    1 aluminum snare and stand (perfect condition)
    2 rack toms
    1 floor tom
    1 base drum w/ old ludwig speed king, ball bearings kicker
    1 Roger's high hat stand with 2 zildjian cymbols (forgot measures)
    1 Roger's crash stand with zildjian crash (forgot measurements)
    1 Roger's Ride cymbol stand with Zildjian ride symbol.
    -Got all this for $60 from some guy who didn't know his drums, he was moving and he couldn't take them. Lucky me :)
    -I replaced the heads with Remo's Ebony Black Pinstripe heads.
    -Added Cowbow and Glock Block.
    -Added HatTrick
