Re: Rogers Red Onyx Drums

That kit was available at the Chicago show perhaps 5-8 yrs ago. It was reasonably priced and I almost bought it but decided I didn't need another kit at that time.

Re: Rogers Question

The bow tie t-rods are a good thing (if original) and points to it being a Cleveland kit. I would say a Cleveland 22 is worth much more than a drum from Fullerton.

Re: Rogers Black Onyx

That is my favorite finish! I have a beautiful 20-12-14ft-16ft with a matching powertone., all Cleveland. I've been meaning to get a glamour shot of these. Perhaps this will light a fire.

Congrats...

Re: Rogers Swivo Cymbal Arm Question

Yes, pic 2 is of the cymbal arm and pic 3 is of a tilter. With an extension arm, the hex rod directly under the cymbal felt (pic 3) can be longer, perhaps up to 6" or so. They came in several...

I still check in a couple of times a day. I just don't have much to say.

Re: Rogers Silver Sparkle

The rack tom sure looks like a 13. Compare the toms in the 1st pic. Me? I'd need a 12.

Re: This Person May Not Be a Drummer

I had a photo (can't find it right now) of a snare stand set up exactly like that one. The only difference was he set the snare drum on top of this new set up. It was a beauty.

Re: Nice Ludwig&Ludwig set in WMP

Congrats! you must be excited.

425 miles to pick up then drive home new drums is not as far as driving 425 miles to see grandma.

Re: This is the Display Your Rogers Drums Thread

I did buy the repros and I'm very happy with them. I have a 7 line, 5", and 5 and 6 1/2 five liners. The new drum just sounds the best! Is it the new rail? I dunno.

Re: This is the Display Your Rogers Drums Thread

It didn't have one when I bought it. I bought a "new" frame and wires.

A friend of mine has a pretty big music store, 10 min from my house. I stopped in for a visit and he said he had a question...

Re: Can anyone help identify this drum?

Back in the 20's there were all kinds of shops making instruments. It will be hard to determine the maker.

See if a 14" head fits the bottom of the drum. It may not. There wasn't a real standard...

Re: Rogers dynasonic

Yup, that picture is as rec'd. I'm not going to dismantle and clean until I get some new heads which are on order. It's a shame the bridge didn't come with it but I have an extra.....somewhere.

Re: Rogers dynasonic

Wow! Talk about a coincidence. I just picked this up on Monday. I wasn't planning on buying a snare drum but the condition for a 1964 drum was too good to pass up. It is also missing the bridge.

Re: Opinions: Hawthorne Drum Shop

Just remember this kit is made of ply wood. A stewart is the first kit I owned when I was in second grade. By the time I sold it 7 yrs later, the rack tom was warping and had a "flat" side.

Re: Ludwig Downbeat 1965

I'd ask him what price would make him happy. See if you're on the same page.
