Is this Buddy on Mardi Gras?

First time I see this video. Enjoy it too if you too haven't seen it before. Looks like a B&B Rogers in Constellation configuration and Mardi Gras Pearl. Drumming starts jut before 3 minutes.

Re: Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all your gear?

I notice a few of you have suggested getting to one brand. I did that some time ago and I've passed on some beauties of other manufacturers, but it is a bit easier to focus on a single name. In my...

Re: Ludwig Blue Sparkle

Very good I would say. Plus, you'll look and sound like Hall Blaine. Every wonder why there wasn't a Hal Blaine kit in the catalog? That was probably a Hollywood set with two up. The 13 is probably...

Re: Rogers Red Onyx

Realistically, the only repair is new wrap. Once it gets to that point it's likely to keep delaminating like the one in the photo. This wrap was flapping in the breeze. You could pull it of with your...

Re: Rogers Holiday Dayton Red Onyx

I was cruising through the gallery looking for something else entirely today, when I noticed this post had occurred just 8 days before I bought the set through an eBay auction. I'm thinking it must...

Re: Cadillac Green, getting close!

Correct! The seller is quite specific in his explanation that they are wrapped.

Re: Early Dynasonic

That dealer is hard to work with. He puts up one partial photo of a set and that's it. If you inquire, he says it's in great shape and that's all you get. I gather he just wants to sell out of the...

Rogers in NoCal $750

For you guys in northern California, this one might be worth it for the throne alone. Can't beat that for a seat!

Re: Should I sell ?

Conscience can lie too. It works on the basis of the information given it; the old saying, garbage in, garbage out.

If you still had a complete set it might be different, but I suggest you let...

Re: Psychedelic Red snares on ebay

You aren't kidding when you say clone. Talk about a close match in wrap! Nice work.

Re: "Ply" Question

Now there's a new word: recorrectly. That's what you get at 5:45 AM.

Re: "Ply" Question

I'd be in agreement. The solid shell is a pretty thick drum if I recall recorrectly.

Re: Ludwig Blue Oyster Hole in bass drum

Innovative approach Robziljian. I've not heard of that one, but it might be satisfactory. Was the mount removed? Could you get another mount of the same type to put back on and cover the holes, then...

Re: Zilco by Azco

What is the relationship between these and the cymbals that Rogers sold under their own name?

Re: Early Dynasonic

So nice. Such a piece of history. The others manufacturers had some nice offerings with snare drums that had much more complicated mechanisms, but Joe Thompson's was very simple and very effective....

Rogers Lug Screws

If anyone has some Rogers lugs screws to sell from the 1968 era, I need enough to mount 44 lugs - an entire 20, 12, 16 drum set. These will look like the ones in the attached photo. Slotted, hex...

Re: Rogers Drums in Strata Finishes

I suspect you are correct in that view. In a way, it works out nicely for the rarity. On the other hand, it is disappointing not to have a selection of them coming up from time-to-time. I think the...

Re: Rogers Drums in Strata Finishes

After starting this thread about 10 months ago, I have (again) acquired a Rogers set in strata finish. Some of you may have seen it on Reverb over the weekend. I was able to get a good price on it...

Re: Happy Super Bowl

It's just not right. First the Jaguars lose in my adopted region and now the Patriots from home of old.

All I can say is congrats to Philly!

Original Rogers Black Onyx

Re: Tabs.... Sister Golden Hair... anyone?
