Re: My First Rogers Foray! I Have some questions........

You hit the Lottery with this one. Those are the machined collets....they won't crack. Floor tom looks to be early Dayton with the flat gray paint. The floor tom is around 1966. The others are 1963.

Re: P87 strainer Dean going mad tensioning snares

Dean,

I also agree with Mark.
Another solution would be to scour craigslist and ebay for a ratty, totaled, beat-up version of this drum with the snares still on them. It may take some time, but...

Re: P87 strainer Dean going mad tensioning snares

Rut-Roh.
A quick inter-web search shows that the Ludwig L-1108 12 strand synthetic gut system for a 14" drum with the P-87 strainer can be had to $88 bucks from Drumsonsale.com

Re: P87 strainer Dean going mad tensioning snares

Are those the original gut snares for the drum? They look too long for this system/drum.

In my experience (Super sensitives with gut), the brass ferrules on the gut strand should be crimped fairly...

Re: What is your favorite vintage hardware?

As I get older, lighter, dependable hardware rules the day. For me personally that is the Rogers Swivo era. Single braced, quickly adjustable, light, packs up small and ALL STEEL!!
Still sturdy and...

Re: Looks like Satin flame Slingerlands.

I have always heard that it was either Aqua or Blue Moire finish. I couldn't help noticing that Dennis is using a Buck Rogers snare stand and a Rogers Hi hat. Also, his mounted top is upside down...

Re: Re-wrapping Tip on Seams

Great idea!
However, our local Lowe's has stopped distributing free paint stirrers. Had to buy them yesterday.

Re: Rare Slingerland 14x6,5 double snare system

That looks like a modified Slingerland with possibly a Premier pipe band snare system.

Gretsch tension rods=Camcos??

I have read that in the late 50's/early 60's Camco had made products for Rogers and that they also produced the "Floating Action" pedal for Gretsch which was practically the same as the Camco...

Re: Small vs. Large (modern) holes on Cymbals

Zenstat,

As far as I can tell (I'm not an expert here), it looks to be an "Old Stamp"
(either IIb or IIIb)
The hole is 3/8ths and they are very thin 14 inchers.

Re: Small vs. Large (modern) holes on Cymbals

Does that include K. Zildjian from Turkey? I've got a matched set of 14" K. Istanbuls where the bottom cymbal won't fit on a 60's Rogers Swivo hi-hat.

Re: Super Sensitive question

Just to be clear...this is a Ludwig drum shell? The 6 plies from another era/company could be a lot thicker perhaps. I believe the control handle/link and rod unit assemblies should be the same...

Re: Rogers Swivo matic bass drum pedal

Interesting. Here's a view of mine. It would be great to someday decipher the how and why of the variations in this model.
