Default Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

I'm trying to not be argumentative as sorta like a New Year's resolution. So, I'll just say that your Rogers set must have been a rare exception to the greatness of the Swivomatic era Rogers drums. Swivomatic hardware set the bar very high for drum hardware. Its ball and socket principal is still copied by many drum manufacturers. Rogers raised the bar again with Memrilok tubular-type hardware which is also still copied by other drum makers. I was not a big fan of Dynasonic snare drums mainly because it took way too much jacking around with too many adjustments to get it to sound as good as many simpler snare drums. I also prefer a wood shell snare drum.
No matter how far you push the envelope, it is still stationery.
