Re: Complete Rogers Drum Kit

Rogers built drums to the end of 1983, and very few in the beginning months of 1984. By the end of June 1984, Rogers was shuttered, all inventory sold off or headed to the landfill.

Re: Complete Rogers Drum Kit

1982-83. Snare drum is 800-1000 on its own. Extra long sizes aren't as desirable as traditional sizes.... 2000-2500+ 10-15% for condition, total package..

Re: New Rogers Snare Drums.

Rogers died in the first six months of 1984, not because of the product, but purely because ownership lacked vision.

Between 1987 and 1990, the Island Music Import Company paid for the use of the...

Re: New Rogers Snare Drums.

Look in the 1983 catalog.
No one said the gaskets were an historical feature,.....only that Rogers was one of the first to use them.

Re: New Rogers Snare Drums.

There are an awful lot of snare drums out in the same price range, build quality, and similar sourcing of parts.

Price is too high... but, what have you bought in that price range?

In 1961...

Re: Is it OK to store drums in the garage?

Every life should know some regret. Yours is about to be earned.

About noon, go sit in your car with the windows up. You get extra points if you can last a whole hour.

Re: Calling All Rogers Experts

That is incorrect. 1988-91 or so. Then another owner who only made T-shirts. Brooks May came next. Then Yamaha. And now the current owners. The current owners are good people.
