Re: Gene Krupa playing a Dynasonic?

And here is a photo from a LB drum instruction book showing an interesting setup LB used (for clinics?). It shows Rogers drums in some unusual sizes. I read somewhere that Joe Thompson liked Louie...

Re: Gene Krupa playing a Dynasonic?

I always loved that photo of Gene on the Rogers kit, but never saw the video. I also never noticed the 4x14 dyna! Just think, it is out there somewhere. Thanks Tommy!

Tommy..... glad you are...

Re: Remo Sparkletone heads?

Your assessment re the glued on sparkles, etc. is correct, but I never had much of a problem with them flaking off. There were two types that I remember, Remo Sparkltone and Rogers offered...

Re: Roger Wood Dynasonic Natural Finish

I also noticed the horizontal splice and thought the same. Since the script badge was removed, I think the original covering was removed and drum was refinished. It could be a decent player,...

Re: Roger Wood Dynasonic Natural Finish

I have seen a natural shell Dynasonic, but it was some years ago. I believe it was sold by Steve Maxwell. I am assuming a natural finish could be special ordered, but not a catalogue offering. The...

Re: Value of Rogers Bongos

Tiny Rogers drums indeed! Check the measurements as my Cleveland era bongos are 6” and 8”. It is hard to place a value as they don’t come up for sale that often. I vaguely remember seeing some...

Re: Dynasonic 7 line 6.5 purchase. There's a catch

I wouldn’t worry about the serial number, especially if you got it at a fair price. The drum is nice and the badge is part of it’s history. Many of these drums come thru the years unscathed and...

Re: Question about Rogers (Luxor) snare shells

+1

Why not just buy a nice beavertail Luxor? Probably about the price of building a modern drum. Plus the modern Luxor “like” drum just wouldn’t have the mojo of an original.

Re: Is this Buddy on Mardi Gras?

Looked to me to be like it could be a Mardi Gras set. I also wondered if it could have been an English built kit? Love the way the hi hat shaft totally failed under his playing. Pre memory lock...

Re: Early Dynasonic

Thanks for all the comments. I remember buying this about 10-15 years ago. Just couldn’t pass up that flat sided dyna from a time when Rogers was first taking off. They weren’t even making their...

Early Dynasonic

With all the talk about the new repro Dynasonics out there, thought I would post one of the first dynas. Flat sided COB shell (Gretsch?) with a paper tag - pre dyna badge.). No tone control.

Re: Vintage 20s Mystery Ludwig Snare

Mike and Oddball, thanks! It does sound like earlier versions were engraved. Oddball’s is a different font, but then so were BB’s. Plausible guess re the initials. But, they are engraved as...

Re: Vintage 20s Mystery Ludwig Snare

Thanks Mike! I am glad to have that catalog page! Yes 8 lug. Are you saying that the earlier versions had the engraved logo vs the stamped logo?

Vintage 20s Mystery Ludwig Snare

I have owned this drum for about 20 years, and never really looked into what it might be.

It is a basic 5x14 Ludwig and Ludwig heavy nickel over brass two piece shell “Standard” snare. However,...

Re: Completed Set-up!

Beautiful kit! Congratulations. I have one of those Rogers Azco cymbals (18crash) and it would rival any old K in darkness and warmth.
