Re: Old Rogers all dressed up

Very cool.

Have you had an opportunity to use them in hot temperatures with direct sunlight or in cold weather?

I had some drums professionally refinished by two renowned outfits with...

Re: Bought a Rogers SuperTen Snare

I've only had one Super Ten. I didn't keep it very long. I found I preferred to stick with the COB PowerTone. It also seemed a less worthy metal snare than the venerable Ludwig Supraphonic (and that...

Re: Old Rogers all dressed up

Looks good and well worth saving too.

What do you mean by "home made wrap"?

Cool MIJ Kit

This little Whitehall kit appears very nice for the $$. I had one years ago in a finish somewhat like blue onyx. Mine also had the matching snare drum. I paid about $300 twenty-five years ago at...

Re: Another eBay Bargain

I suppose there are at least two objective questions:

1. Will it be worth considerably more in 10 years, i.e., it is an investment.
2. Will the buyer get $49k worth of satisfaction owning it?

Re: Interesting way to try to stop a crack

I was caught off guard seeing the holes first, which is the correct way to stop a crack. Then I saw the electrical tape. Why he would have used that instead of duct tape is not to be understood....

Re: Any information on this Camco endorser?

And by the Way, that's why Camco was able to buy out George. His double tom holder was about as good as the one Harold "Doc" West is using in other post that's up right now. Hurting

Re: Any information on this Camco endorser?

That's right, and the others did too. But at the time the Camco endorser was photographed, I'm going to guess that pictured Ludwig double unit was about as good as you could get. The early...

Re: Dancing Barn

Great photos! Thanks for posting those. I really like seeing the stuff from that era. There was a barn in Tamworth, NH where I danced for the first time in my life and kept going for a long time. It...

Black Strata Kit Remembered

I mentioned in another post that I'm back in Jordan for a while. I was in a newer office at the 4th circle but recently took up space in the older office nearer to my apartment. I noticed yesterday a...

Re: Drum Farm

Yes, thank you for checking up on him LeedyBDP. I had sent some emails along the way, but got silence. Good to know he's just laying low and now probably in the snow.

This virus is about as...

Re: HAROLD "Doc" WEST... 1951 tom mounting

The clarinet is not in play, but the clarinetist's right arm with matching stage jacket is in the photo, so he's there.

Has anyone heard from Bobby at the Drum Farm lately? The channel seems to have gone quiet and I'm hoping he's OK.

Dancing Barn

I don't know about other areas where you folks may be located, but in New England barn dances with rock bands on stage and Covid-spreading crowds dancing in the jammed-in spaces was very common in...

Re: Any information on this Camco endorser?

No idea, but I can say he was an astute individual (like Ringo, Ginger, Mitchell et all) and used a Ludwig double-tom mounting system.

Looks like it's mounted to the top of the clarinet.

Re: Different camps of drum fanciers

I eventually settled on Rogers. I've always had a soft spot for Gretsch, especially if they have Rogers or even Slingerland hardware (commonly done at Jack's in Boston). The hardware is principally...

Re: This is the Display Your Rogers Drums Thread

Nice kit! I'll bet that one sounds great.

Is the maple finish original? If it is, it's a rare bird. You see very few that weren't wrapped unless they had the Wildwood outer ply. Whatever, Wildwood...

Re: Premier Genista for Jazz?

I suggest you place it on a snare stand instead of using the bass mount to see if you get a...

Re: 1969 Blu Gee Script Logo Snare

Can the center portion ever be larger diameter than the edges unless we are talking an inside edge (which really wouldn't make sense)? I don't recall learning this in geometry. Or maybe it's the new...
