This bassdrum pedal is in used but good condition and is 100% playable in a professional setting. Also included are several Rogers percussion publications. Both were released in the 1970s.
Interited from a family memeber-(a musician also)
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, the subject of this appraisal is a Rogers Swiv-O-Matic Bass Drum Pedal with publications dating the piece reasonably to 1976 or 1977. The pedal appears to be in good used condition, including its spring, strap and felt.
According to the current owner, the piece was acquired via inheritance. Rogers pedals from this era continue to be desirable among musicians, but are not frequently found in traditional auction settings. The closest comparables are recorded sales on secondhand marketplaces such as Reverb and eBay.
In consideration of the factors noted, a Fair Market Value (pre-auction estimate) of this piece based on comparables observed in the market would be estimated at $100 to $150.
