Re: Snare for a $200 budget

Rogers Powertone will get you 8 lugs, chrome over brass shell, an indestructible totally dependable throw off, fantastic sensitivity, and really cool vintage mojo. And all right in your budget range.

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

Five inchers and Six Point Fivers... have been the two basic standards most of my life. Six is sort of an oddball size. Five and a half..... that's been around a long time too, vintage Slingerland...

Re: Need Help Identifying Rogers Vintage Set

Re: Wrong size tension rods?

Too bad I did not know about this earlier. I was in Sac today.

Re: A Question To Those That Collect A Number Of Drum Kits

So I guess I would answer yes to at least one or two of your questions. .

Re: Trusting others with your kit?

I have loaned a thousand dollar vintage snare drum to a fifth grader.

But then, I knew I could trust that kid.
