Default Rogers tom muffler/tone control availability...

I've be looking for a Rogers tone control/the new part to finish my '68 Londoner kit, but nobody seems to have it in stock. Any suggestions?? thanks.

In the old days, I sometimes took mine off and lost them.
Didn't use them then.

Are you referring to the new Rogers muffler? If so, you are correct that they don't appear to be available yet. Not sure why, but might just be an issue with supply. As for "vintage" Rogers mufflers, I find them priced too high and many time they are worn out around the hinge holes. Takes time to find a good one that is priced right.

The Rogers site ( http://www.rogersdrumsusa.com/authen...acement-parts/ ) does list the muffler along with all the other hardware being installed on the new Dynasonic. It's a shame if these parts are really not available yet for separate purchase.

I don't know where you're seeing that the new parts aren't available... all of the repro parts are available from Big Bang and Sweetwater.

Here's your tone control replacement!

I will trade other Rogers of the same era for these drums. I have a 1960 14x14 Jasper shelled floor tom in Jet Black I am willing to trade as well as other Rogers drums. Contact me if you have either of these!

Thanks for sharing this! The last time I checked both websites, they were not available. Big Bang is now showing it's in stock, but Sweetwater shows it's arriving soon.

Not a problem! It's a lot cheaper than the original ones on eBay... good luck with your project!
