Re: Rogers Supreme Hi Hat Restoration

I would say that a good deal of "Elbow Grease" was liberally applied on this job.
You have earned yourself an adult beverage!
Impressive work, Mark.

Re: New Rogers Parts

Was the engineer unaware that there was a earlier Rogers Drum Company? Jeez.
I don't think it would be that hard to design something at fits everything, but be subtly marked so as not to be passed...

Re: Piccolo Snare

I don't think there exists a definite measurement for the Piccolo, but the industry standard for many decades for a "regular" size snare is 5x14. So, anything under those dimensions generally fall...

Re: Nickel over brass-polishing recipe?

The rims on that drum are Brass. Any plating (in my experience) on brass will continually shine and outlast plating on any other medium (if properly cared for). The tension rods are steel and the...

Re: Ludwig trans. badge COB seam and grommet questions

Great Find!

I have a 1960/63 COB SS with long grommet, but no washers. I'm guessing they used the long grommets that they had for all the wood shell drums at the time.

Re: Bent single flange hoop on Leedy&Ludwig

I'm not sure whether you referring to the 15" hoop being out of round or the stick-chopper rim is "flared" or bent. You can check by placing a drum head in the hoop to see if it fits easily. If it is...

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

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: Rare Slingerland 14x6,5 double snare system

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