A drum set owned by late Rush drummer Neil — and played both onstage and in the studio between 1974 and 1977 — is headed to auction.

The kit is expected to bring between $80,000 and $120,000 as part of Bonhams’ online music memorabilia sale, scheduled between Nov. 23 and Dec. 9.

Peart — who joined the band on July 29, 1974, replacing original drummer John Rutsey — purchased the chrome, double bass drum Slingerland set in late July or early August 1974 from Long & McQuade music store in Toronto. He played the kit at his first Rush gig, opening for Manfred Mann’s Earth Band at Pittsburgh’s Civic Arena on Aug. 14.
