Default It's the "show off your Rogers drums" thread!

Last year or so, we started the very successful Ludwig display thread. Well now it's time to hear the Rogers drum owners roar. So let's see them!

"Post them if ya got em!"

Wine RED ripple? Were they actually red, once? More like pink champagne. Either way, beautiful. And, you are hoarding some Rogers gear. Nicely done, sir.

PS - I don't own any Rogers drums, but I'm becoming more and more interested in owning a COB, 10 lug snare.

Thank you, sir!

They really still have their red. The color striations between the red and the pearl make them appear pinkish far more than they are. It is an extremely difficult color to capture in photographs. To look at them with the naked eye, they are ripple red, definitely not to the degree of the Yamaha red ripple from the 60s, but, noticeably red.


There are snare drums too.
