Default fixed up rogers

I've had this since I was about 10 or 11, it was given to me in many pieces by a distant cousin. I'm seventeen now, this where I'm at. I just tuned it up it really sounds good for rogers kit from the early 80's. (they had already begun their descent towards crappy drums) It's an R-380, orignally a 7 piece (you can see the toms stacked in the backround) but I set it up as a four piece, though I do the whole ?uestlove no tom tom thing once in while. (meaning just the floor tom) There are pics of my one other cymbal that isn't set up at the moment, a zildjian k custom flat top ride.










Specs:

22" bass drum
12 x 9 or 10 (cant remember) tom tom
16" floor tom
14 x 6 vintage ludwig snare drum, I've been told it's a student model because it only has six lugs. I say it's just hard to tune.

10" DH Stagg medium brilliant splash
18" Zildjian medium thin crash
20" vintage Zildjian A Custom Ping Ride (don't generally like ping rides, but this came to me for free and I actually really like the sound - not too pingy...)
20" Zildjian K Custom flat top ride
16" Paiste innovations thin crash
14" Zildjian paper thin crash


DW 5000 kick pedal
remo weatherking coated emperor heads

The pictures are a no-go. Upload them to imageshack/photobucket first, then put that url in place of the one you have now.

Hah, if only the internet worked like that.

Go to edit thread, and go to manage attachments and upload the pictures with that.

Nice finish!

But I don't like how that beautiful K Flat Top isn't getting in on any of the action.

Nice set up, and that K flattop is supposed to be a nice cymbal. R360s and R380s were built by Yamaha for Rogers as their entry level line, Now Yamaha owns Rogers. Perhaps someday they will bring back the greatness that was the Rogers USA Drums of the 1960s. I have five sets of Rogers. LOVE them.

Wow given to you and you're 17?! You are so lucky!

I'm 19 and I'm still trying to find the drum set for me!

why am I holding my breath? All the kits? seems a bit much, honestly I don't know how you he get's around to playing all those kits. they are all beautiful though...

yea, the day I took the pics I happened to have the ping ride set up, but I use the flattop just as much. I wish I had a way to set them both up.

Not really vintage. The 360 and 380 kits were Japanese made and had less than maple shells. Nice looking kit though.

I miss mine sometimes...

I sold it to my dad to buy the 16" floor tom for my Pacific.

When i got it it was covered in tape residue and just really dirty. I babied it and got it looking pretty good. The snare drum was actually really really good sounding for as cheap as the drums seemed.

I gotta say though, for what they were at the time ( an entry level kit ) they were pretty well made. Better than most of the modern equivalents you find today.


WAAAAY back... in high school, circa 1998. Tough gigs having a bass player with 2 18s, 2 10s and 2 15s and like 1000 watts of power on one side of me, and a marshal JCM2000 and a 4x12 on the other side. You'll notice there aren't any microphones on the kit...

I like your setup man. Nice choice in cymbals. Hold on to that kit too. I had a 6 piece that I picked up for $50 last year, and I cleaned 'em up and sold 'em. I wish I could have held on to them, but my apartment is small and crowded.

Anyway, I agree. For an entry level kit back then, they were pretty darn good! Here are mine:
