Default Re: My First Rogers Foray! I Have some questions........

I ordered my Black Diamond Pearl Rogers set from the catalog in 1961. My 14x20 bass drum had all Swivomatic mounting hardware for my 8x12 tom and my 14x5 matching Holiday snare drum on my left, a ride cymbal on my right. I had my 16x16 floor tom. I loved this drum set. Here we are on stage in 1963 or 1964 at Madura's Danceland, which was a big band era ballroom on the south shore of Lake Michigan where Chicago and Hammond, Indiana met at the state line. The other picture was taken at a fraternity house party at Purdue in Lafayette, Indiana. The camera angle makes it look as though my dear departed friend Tom is about eight feet tall. He was only about 6'1".

No matter how far you push the envelope, it is still stationery.
