Re: Wrong size tension rods?

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

Anyway. First thing would be to get the proper tension rods for your snare drum. Nothing has been done here that cannot be fixed....

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

I "collect" Rogers. My collection spans 1961-1984. There are 8 sets and close to 30 snare drums.
So I guess I would answer yes to at least one or two of your questions. .

Re: Need Help Identifying Rogers Vintage Set

I doubt re-wrap. This color was only produced for about five years. It has never been duplicated to my knowledge.


Snare drum is a throw away.

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.

Re: Do you ever stand back from your drums...

Absolutely. and they all have special places in the house. They never sleep in the garage, and they are never left out in the cold.

Re: Rogers Dynasonic Custom Built Snare 10 Lugs

Not that I am biased or anything....


I do own a BB Supersensitive 5" and a 6.5 Ludalloy Supersensitive.

But there are 12 Dyna-Sonics.

A complete drum should be had in very good condition...

Re: Late 60's Rogers Powertone

They come up so rarely it is indeed hard to set a price. Thing is, they are always expensive, and leaning towards wood dynasonic territory.

Good luck.

Re: Late 60's Rogers Powertone

Holy Grail.

THE Holy Grail. Want to trade for the Black Beauty, the 6.5 Supersensitive Ludalloy, the 5" Supra, and the mid 70s Acrolite?

Re: Late 60's Rogers Powertone

They are a dime a dozen. Send it to me and I will replace it with an Adam 6.5 with original grime.



The 6.5 Powertone is very uncommon. Price range would be in the 400-600 range depending on...

Re: New Drums Need Info/Help! Vintage Rogers Kit

That is right.

Shame to see any drum from that era transformed by aftermarket parts, but it seems to have happened a lot. 9/72 Rogers drums were three ply shells for the most part.

Re: Drilling A Hole In your Thumb

Done that too.

Or how about splinters you need big pliers to remove? You know the kind, they stick out on the other side of a finger, and scrape a bone?

Re: Drilling A Hole In your Thumb

Been there, done that. A couple times a year, I get nailed somewhere by a bit tip. Most carpenters have the hands of a blind man. All scarred up.
