Re: This One's for You, PowerTone

Dan,

Absolutely gorgeous! That looks like genuine Silver Glass. Where'd you get the wrap? Was it easy to work with?

Re: Is someone here selling this stuff?

I agree... more of a hoarder than a collector. Everything from that Black Beauty to MIC crap. But who knows what he has that's not pictured. If he had pictured any Rogers stuff, I'd drive up from...

Is someone here selling this stuff?

Just came across this CL ad. Wow, someone's got a lot of drums. This has to be a member here on the VDF, no? Just curious.

Re: What would make this kit worth $4000???

I'd take him up on the offer just to call his bluff. Course, I'd take a couple other guys with me. I'd like to know what his end game is.

Re: Babylon Berlin Killer Vintage Kit ...

That looks like a great series. I'm going to have to check that out.

First, that kit is especially drool-worthy to me, because my very first set was a yellowed WMP round-badge Gretsch kit with...

Re: WTB Practice Pads

My first practice pad in the 4th grade looked just like that one (except I didn't have the stand). And I currently have a snare stand that has that identical base. I've always wondered about the...

Re: Rogers Cleveland 18,12,14

Gorgeous!!! Bop sizes and in Silver Glass! (the best of all the glitters). I am filled with covetousness.

Thanks for sharing that.

Re: A Contrast in Solos

John,

I sort of agree with you. Some solos definitely go on too long and become tedious. I thoroughly enjoy watching a good, succinct solo from a skilled drummer because, as a drummer myself, I...

Re: Dyna-Sonic Reissue Up Close

Okay, so how do the serial numbers run on the new Dyna's? I noticed that the Dyna pictured here has a CA-0016 badge number, but a No33 paper label number. Why both a badge and a label? Does each...

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Hmmm.... His solution to eliminate overtones is to lay a rope across the top head and stick the other end inside the vent to dampen the snare head? Not exactly an exclusive patented idea there since...

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Rogers' ridiculously fat, ugly Memriloc spurs and FT legs...

The hex spurs and legs were elegant and did the job just fine.

Re: Rogers kit barn find ANY/ALL info appreciated!

Red,

Yes, the serial numbers on the badges can approximate the date of manufacture. Post pictures of the badges.

Re: Ludwig Smorgasborg Project Kit

Fantastic! The great artwork truly makes this set unique. A refreshing alternative to rewrapping. (I hope she was paid well!)

Re: Vintage Rogers

I'll bet you're right, Mark. Same reason we see Fullerton swivo-era drums refitted with Memriloc hardware.

Re: No Name Japanese Drums

Very nice purchase! I have a similar snare. Properly tuned with the right head, these can sound great. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Rogers kit barn find ANY/ALL info appreciated!

I think you're asking about the bass T-rods, not the lugs. The KOA finish tells us that this is a Fullerton era set (early 70's), so the proper bass T-rods would be the flat, Dayton style rods...

Re: The Price is Right?

Very fair price. The buyer for these simply didn't see your ad. You can't expect to get a strike and reel it in the first time you cast your line. Good luck.

Re: Rogers kit barn find ANY/ALL info appreciated!

Yes, very nice find. The front bass hoop and the claws are not Rogers, but the rear hoop appears to be the original Rogers hoop with KOA inlay. The cast collet noses are probably cracked (very...

Re: Replicating a Ludwig Transition Badge

Mike,

I used very small tin snips to cut out the keystone blank then rounded the sharp corners with a file. As Burgundy noticed, I drilled the grommet hole just a little too high. I'll have to...
