Re: Australian Collectors Group
I used to live in Perth.
When I left for the U.K. many years ago I left my Rogers Big R XP8 with a friend who disappeared off the face of the earth.
My fault I know. So I guess it's floating around W.A. somewhere. It's cherry wood colour.
The good news is I now have a 60's holiday rogers I acquired through this site.
Good luck with the Collectors group. Next time I'm in town I'll look you up.

Re: Australian Collectors Group
I'm not an Australian but I do think a new message board for you guys is diffenitly a good idea. I mean you can talk drums until your blue in the face and it will help us Americans as well if one of you guys come up with a new way to fix a snare or other drum you can let us know. Oh and BTW I kind of have a soft spot for Aussies I worked with them when I was a young Marine.

Re: Australian Collectors Group
Hey Grefal, I spotted your posts about your lovely blue sparkle Rogers set and the pic of your Powertone snare. I have the exact same Rogers Cleveland set and also with the Powertone and Dynasonic snares. I guess my kit is the Australian brother to yours. Only difference is my set has the 14" floor tom (20,12,14) I have all the matching hardware too, I've never seen or heard of another kit like it here in Australia. Any other Aussies here have Rogers drums they'd like to show us?

Re: Australian Collectors Group
Hey Josh ...would you post pics of your kit? Used to play a lovely old Rogers when I was in the UK...had a great sound.

Righto, lets see if this will work.....

This is my Rogers Holiday kit made in Cleaveland Ohio around 1965. It's a 20,12,14 Buddy Rich Headliner set with an early 7 line Dyna-sonic snare shown. Since these pics I have added a matching blue sparkle Powertone snare, lovely. I purchase all the matching hardware seperately. I took these shots during a recording session in 2008. I love playing this kit, sounds a LOT bigger than the sizes suggest.
Any one else care to share pics of their US drums in Oz?

Re: Australian Collectors Group
Hi Dave from Perth, I'm Steve from Fremantle , this is my first reply as I'm a brand new member, I'd be happy to join an Australian Collectors Group , I've just completed my first restoration of a vintage Prem and am always keen to hear what else is out there and what old kits have made there way here over the years.
I've tried to attach a before and after shot of the kit but its failed , i'll give it another go sometime.

Re: Australian Collectors Group
Hi Steve from Fremantle and welcome to the forum. There is a sticky thread in the General Questions and Topics forum on how to shrink photo's down to the rights size so you can post them here. It works well using photo shop. Pictures need to be 100K or less. Hope this helps.
Lets see some more vintage drums in Oz!
