Yes, vintage Rogers drums are the coolest! Your 12, 16, 20 is the very popular Headliner kit. I've got the same one, but in blue sparkle. I also converted a 12x15 marching tenor drum to a floor tom! Enjoy your kit...and thanks for posting!

Mark is right on the money. A Buddy Rich Headliner in blue onyx (with extras). Very, very nice! I have the same kit, but with a smaller floor tom and a PowerTone. the Dynasonic in that finish is a real sweet piece. When you were thinking blue onyx back in the day, I was thinking red because of the cataloged Citadel. But I like the blue just as much at this juncture.

Thanks Mark and Dan. I was blown away at how great these drums sound! I also added a '73 Fullerton 24 X 14 to use when I need a little more whomp! Here is the same kit with that kick. Precision Drum in NY did a terrific job taking the old Koa finish off and putting on the Blue Onyx.....

Serial number are reliable. There are no paper tags inside oval badge Dyna-Sonics. If your drum is from 67, serial number will be in the 9-10 thousand range. There is a lot of crap still in print about Rogers that amounts to no more than made up myth.

Thanks Mr. Toast. I feel like people on this forum actually understand the excitement / compulsion to be caretakers of this history.

Thanks Ploughman; the S/N on my drum is 11921. So, Ohio or Fullerton is the question. And if 11 thousand range puts it to 1968, i think it could be either Fullerton or Ohio correct? Cheers, Drumact
