Default Re: This is the Display Your Rogers Drums Thread

This Walberg & Auge drum set is made from Rogers and Gretsch components as well as some parts made by Walberg & Auge for their own drums. The Rogers Powertone chrome snare goes well with the other three drums. The drums left the factory wrapped in Salmon Satin Flame. After much deliberation, I decided to re-wrap them in a custom Duco simulation made to my specs by Bum Wraps. I may get another piece of matching wrap for an old Rogers wood shell snare drum in my projects pile.

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

I won the 16" Dayton floor about 6 years ago on ebay after a vicious bidding war that came down to the last second and about $20. This thing cost almost 2x more than the rest of my Rogers shells! Well worth it, I had been dying to get a matching floor for years!
I switched out the original tom mount for a rims mount off a cymbal stand but I still have all the original stands and mounts safely stored. I LOVE THIS KIT!
Just say this. Beautiful set and a great story on the purchase, especially of the original set for "next to nothing." We always like that!
