Re: A little help with a possible unicorn snare

Very interesting. What is the red along the bottom? Was the finish originally red that faded to white (assuming they made that finish in other colors than white)? It would certainly match up with...

Re: Rogers dynasonic

Every Rogers in a 6.5” depth from the Covington era is rare, be it Dyna, Powertone, Tower or Luxor, and your Dyna is a beauty. It is a whole different beast than the 5x14 cob Dyna.

Looking...

Re: Rogers dynasonic

Congratulations! Nice drum and glad you picked it up. Now maybe you should customize it with some snare beds.

Re: One Way Out With Ludwig

Nice job. You played for the music and good clean relaxed playing. I really like the sound you got out of your snare drum. It had nice character and depth.

Re: Rogers Mardi Gras that got away.

Hope someone here got those drums. They will be very happy. 3 ply shells and tall hoops. Perhaps the best sounding Rogers. Only downside is most likely first generation beavertail lugs - the posts...

Re: 14" Rogers floor tom value

Funkypoodle, I couldn’t agree with you more.

Extremely irritating seeing folks who thinks they are a price expert being so rude as to interfere with a fellow drum brother’s sale! It’s just plain...

Re: 14" Rogers floor tom value

Wow! Way to go guys. Nice of you to help a fellow drum brother sell a drum. Ha! This whole price discussion thing gets very boring. Sellers can ask whatever they want. No need to step all over...

Re: Info about Ebay seller "Counterhoop"

No misrepresentation. He clearly states for a snare batter, not snare resonant. It would work for either a 14” snare batter or a 14” tom batter or resonant head hoop, which is what is stated in the...

Re: For Sale - English made Rogers Dyna-sonic COB

I agree, the drum looks complete. The ones I have seen normally have a first generation snare frame, but perhaps you have a later version that has a later frame. First version Oval badge with no...

Re: For Sale - English made Rogers Dyna-sonic COB

Re: Rogers Drums Advertisement

Rogers was well aware of the cracked lug issue. The issue usually seemed to arise from over tensioned drums, with the most common problem drum being the 6 lug Spotlight, that evolved into the Luxor....

Re: Is this normal for a Dynasonic?

It is not unusual that UK dynas have beavertail lugs. Just like here, earlier ones had B&B lugs. The shell is different than US 7 liner Rogers. Maybe heavier?

I have one that I got in 1968...

Re: Is this normal for a Dynasonic?

Hi Dan. I have a very early (first) version and it does have the hole thru the base. I never noticed that either. It is a one piece footboard so the heel is attached to the rod via the typical...

Re: REMO Skyntone drumheads vs RTOM moongel pads

I use moon gel on a variety of heads and have never seen that, but then I haven’t tried skyntone heads. The newer gels seem to be “bluer” than the older ones. I suspect some of the die got...
