Man I tell ya, I've been wanting Rotos since I was a teen 35 years ago. I started searching, ALWAYS SO PRICEY. I love them, but I was not willing to pay the price for used Remo rotos. I just saw a 12" Remo roto with no stand going for $300. Nutbags, who's gonna pay that?

I don't think they sell out quickly. I could have purchased them multiple times this year, just didn't.

You should get you that nice computer for recording first! (y) :cool: And then the next day buy the rotos 👀:LOL:

Already have the 6, 8, 10 set. Got those in June when I got my kit.
Yeah... I wanna try recording, but I don't wanna go "freaking out" with buying stuff for it. That's why I got the Presonus studio 68... beginner.

Got the Pearl Snare In this morning.

Like I noted before, this is the first Pearl Drum I’ve owned this my 8 piece Pearl export kit I bought when I was 17 after saving for months.

The fact that I wanted a solid maple snare and Pearl was hand making them in the USA made me give them a look and I got it cheaper than a Craviotto.


Hopefully get to test it and tune it up today. My only gripe initially is that the snare strainer is about as cheap you should ever put on a 1000 dollar snare.

I’m really curious how it sounds. I’m guessing really fat, not too much attack, great on thick, thuddy backbeats

Absolutely stunning finish and Rogers quality. Hard to top !
Thank you Sonorfan!
Being a classic rock guy and growing up in 90s early 2k metal hard rock, I have always had an affinity for the solid gold oldies.

I am actually enjoying this kit and quickly need a cocktail bass pedal and I now feel I need to learn second line and cocktail beats.

Though I’m no Cozy or Buddy Rogers, I’m more like Dave Clark, though I can’t stand DC’s shadow. He had that snare cracking and great pulse for beats - if that makes sense.

I love the open warm tones and just now looked into earthtone but not sure if I want to go calf, I for sure want to play all the AM hits with this one.

Interesting finish. Reminds me of peering into a kaleidoscope back in the '70s. The look is a rare one for sure.
Thanks C.M.!
This finish is the reason why I got my Pearl Session Select in Black Halo Glitter which looks a little more like my Acrolite snare in black galaxy (same reason aforementioned) that chose rather than the grey alum ones.

There really is nothing like the confetti Mardi Gras finish from Rogers.

(No I will not be putting CS dots anywhere near these.)

one of these all the way from greece, first one from the USA turned up smashed beyond use, hoping this time it turns up intact and well packaged.....and not jsut shoved in a jiffy envelope!!
 
Arrived today! NIB, NOS , 6.5x14 Tama Starclassic bb. Unboxed ( decently packed), and checked finish and hardware and inside of shell by peering though the reso head. Everything looks perfect , but I’ll pop the heads and check bearing edges and tune and tap on Monday .
Some work to do and preparing and getting ready for a new puppy in the house Sunday, so it’ll have to wait . These quick cell phone shots don’t do it justice ( I need forum member @cbphoto to take pics ).
The molten brown burst lacquer literally glows in the sunlight like molten lava !
