Default Rogers Snare Salvage Project

Wanted to share my Rogers Butcher Block snare project with everyone.

I posted this as a follow up to my other post in the Vintage drum area about B-Block wraps but I though it would be better here in the Restoring Vintage drums area.
The drum is about 99.5% finished as I still need to put the badge on and install the muffler (period specific one is on its way).

I harvested a Cleveland era 4-digit serial number Luxor shell that the wrap was shot, had no strainer or butt and the B&B lugs were all cracked.
- Closed off all the holes and re-drilled for an 8-lug set up
- Repainted the interior with Krylon Flat Grey paint (matching the original color)
- Added the harvested wrap
- Changed the cracked B&B lugs for Beaver Tail lugs
- Added a Dyna-sonic strainer and butt

Thanks again to Mike "Mchair303" for the B-Block wrap !

Here are some of the project pictures

And the 99.5% complete snare.

Oh Yea . . . . And it sounds fantastic even without the internal tone control !

I used Elemers Pro bond max wood putty. I have found over time it holds the best without cracking and chipping Then after sanding a tiny bit of red ball sealer.
