Thumbs up Re: Rogers "big R" orphan kit

Wonderful to bring all those orphans together! They look great!

I love the Big R series, they are so sturdy and the memriloc system is so reliable.

Nice job!
Fred

Right On! I cant think of anything better than breathing life into orphans to build a complete set. How Stellar, and I bet they sound as killer as they look!

Very nice! I always liked the look of those late model bass drum spurs. Looks like they are on steroids!

Really nice. They look showroom new! Did you use tape or glue on the wrap?

I used tape. This is the second kit I've used tape on and it works pretty good but the seems always seem to lift a little bit at the ends. I just re-wrapped a floor tom using glue and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be so I think I'll be using glue from now on.
