i must say that's the oddest kit i've seen in a while.
Why two snares? how to reach the...actual tom? I'm confused. I have a rogers kit from the late 70's, (love) and yea they did go out of buisness a while ago. So is it a rogers? or a fake import? (i don't mean to put you're kit down, just confused)

either way, congrats, i hope you have fun with it

im not sure where it was made, but it has two snares cause i had two and couldn't afford an 8" tom so i tuned the other snare, i have long arms so i can reach everything easily.

I have a new Rogers set, but it looks absolutely nothing like that. Were they bought over by Yamaha? I've heard that a couple times but have not been postive it was correct. I don't mean to diss your set or anything... just saying...

Hmm looks like a really uncomfortable setup, not only the snares, but those toms aswell. But, hey it aint my kit:)

Give the kid a break. It really doesnt matter how "awful" his set up looks. Or even how "awesome" it looks. Its his set up, and while its not what I would choose, he is trying his best to learn. And really, .............. you can usually judge experience by set up. The more experience a drummer has, the better his setup is going to play. Not look, but play.
And that second snare drum up there........looks like it would be difficult to play the rest of the kit to any reach of its potential. I played a guest spot one night in a gospel concert. Sat down on this dudes drums and the only things I could reach were the hats, the snare, the kick pedal, and one floor tom. The cymbals were out of stick reach. So were the toms. From a distance the set up "looked" fine.

i actually did change the way its set up and the toms are closer and it would look like a normal 5 piece if i moved the snare, that was only temporary while we moved furniture around, everythings in reach, and the way its setup now,(ill have pics in a bit) made it easier to do those kieth fills out of modern drummer(but they did rip my snare head so i had to get another one)

Yes it's all about try and error. Great.
Next step in setup to learn: try different rooms. Snare in kitchen, tom in bathroom and Bassdrum: yes of course: garage

I never used a brooks mays rogers. Although some of the better stuff they were beginning to produce at the end didnt look bad. Now its all gone. We are hoping for something better from Yamaha now that they own the Rogers legacy. About time someone got it that doesnt have permanent intentions of importing Asian firewood.

As for cymbals, buy good ones. Even if it means one at a time. Take care of them, by the time yer kids are grown, you might be ready for new ones.

It's all relative. To those of us who play open, having to cross your right arm over to play hihat seems very uncomfortable. But it's the dominant way of playing, so obviously people get used to what is less ergonomic.

'bm rogers 5 piece kit, paiste 14" brass crash, rogers 16" c/r, 12" wuhan china, rogers 14" hats'

Hmm, didn't manage to get through all of the posts here. However those toms are placed rather sparsly.

Is that comfortable?

Nice rogers though bud.

Laul.

You could try to put that ''extra'' snare right next to your hi-hat (on the left), that would make it easier to hit both snare and toms.
Just givnig you another way of doing it... But I am shure they sound great, especially when you get some new heads!

this set up issue isnt 100% his fault.
his tom mounts in the BD are extremely hard to work with, iv once had the same system. its almost impossible to get a good angle, and none of his stands are boom stands, which makes them hard to fit in for the right position. but i agree, putting that snare to the left or right of him would make more sense

I had to get straight stands cause im broke almost all the time, i wish i could have gotten an 8" tom, thats what the second snare is supposed to be like, i keep the snares turned off and tuned the head really high, when i do turn the snares on, it makes a nice crack

and i need an answer to this, what could i do to make the kit bigger, i can't get drums in the same finish and badge because rogers only made those drums, as far as i know, i did add the bells and snare so it is a six piece but i am planning on getting roto toms sometime before college, i can't get enough of them since getting dark side of the moon

Roto-toms are cool. If you're gonna get the standard 3 small roto's on the straight rack, I'd run your aux. snare left of your hi-hat with the 3 roto's above the snare. That puts a nice 4 drum battery all left of your hat.

that would be sweet, also, do you think a snare with a high tuned head and snares off could sub as a small tom?
