My latest project. Starting with contact paper wrapped XP8 Rogers clear maple shells, and ending up with professional furniture restorer application of 4 coats of satin finish lacquer. They look a good as when they left the factory.

You saved those from destruction and made them beautiful again! Nice work.

Bought this Rogers kit used in 1974. 20-12-14 Great sounding jazz kit - I'm using earthtone batter heads. I love the deep blue sparkle sheen in low lighting conditions.

Remove the grommet. Heat the badges with a hair dryer. Pick up a little piece of a corner and slide some dental floss under it. Slide back and forth in a sawing motion. Heat some more as needed. Sometime they came off easy in one heating, others had to be heated several times. Patience is the key here.

Reglue them with some spray adhesive and tape them down until they dry. New grommet.

Drum Doug, I'm a beginner Rogers fan so I have a couple questions about your kit. first, I think this is the only rogers kit I've seen with a rail mount rather than the highly rated Swivo mount; is yours original? Also, how common is it to have knobby mount spurs? Don't think i've seen that before either. Beautiful kit, by the way. I'm looking at a blue sparkle kit myself.....marko

Marko52 and Drum Doug. Those sets appear from time-to-time. They are original and quite cool. A red sparkle set was for sale not too long ago on Reverb and then more recently one in steel grey ripple. Probably built as Rogers was clearing the inventory on those parts, all which were listed in the '62 catalog.
