Vintage Mardi Gras Bongos Drum Set - £3100

123

condition: excellent
delivery available
make/manufacturer: Mardi Gras
model name/number: Bongos Drum Set

The only set in these sizes, finish and year factory built found to this date.Rogers would of made anything upon request but the 16x14" rare round floor tom and 14x18" round bass drum didn't appear until the 1964R catalog in print. Not offered in the 60R just yet. 8x12" tom and 5x14" Holiday snare.So this 4pc with additional bongos included in this auction in original Mardi Gras is very unique.I found the set 8/2000 and have stored it in a smoke free home in cases from then on.Some hairline cracks on the b+b lugs.Typical from the early 1960s era.Bold colors in Mardi finish.See all large pics.Came from the original owner as a 4pc with serial numbers lined up well:#29,32X, #29,29X, #29,3XX(plate over rest of tag) and #29,30X.The 6+8 bongos included are in the 17K range.The original owner did a bad thing many years ago.He drilled a figure eight on the snare hole top to the right of the snare script logo to replace a broken lug.With the proper one back, under my watch, it still can be seen from the outside.Aside from that no cracks in the finish or bad anything else.2 of 4 original pieces, the bass and long floor I'd say would be near impossible to find in this era.One rare clean original headed time piece.Tops of toms and snare match the ones in stamp, circle or later, bottoms but sat for years untouched on the bottoms of the toms.Similar in condition as the front bass head.
