Default Seeking info

I wanted to see if anyone could verify this drum. According to Vintage it is a Rogers cocktail drum/ 1954. Any info would be great .

Definitely a Rogers drum with the Champion badge from the mid 50's. I have the exact same but from ~61' with the oval badge and metal wires. It is called a Classmate drum. Lower end entry snare for beginners.

Hey , Thanks for the info on the 54 Rogers. I used to sell on ebay and Reverb. I have a nice little collection I kept. Mostly older Ludwig's and a couple Slingerland. And older Zildjian's, some from the 1930's and 40's. I have been getting into electronic kits recently.
and recording inside the box. It really makes recording, mastering and mixing so much easier. I really love the variety of sounds available today right at your finger tips. If you think I may be able to return the favor some day just give me a holler. So thank you again.
