Default Rogers Drums "In Round" Tolerances

Does anyone happen to know the tolerances for "in round" that Rogers applied to manufacturing their drums? This would be for the 5-ply Keller shells used in the mid-to-late 60's and the 14" diameter snare drums, in particular.

Thanks,

Hi Dan,

I'm not aware of any published specs that Rogers adhered to in regards to the "out-of-round" tolerance. Was this something they actually checked for? I can't answer that. However, I would certainly think that a shell that wouldn't accept a drum head (mylar) would be cause to possibly reject a shell. This might be a topic for Ploughman!!

I thinkn theres nearly 80 individual drums here spread out over 24 years. This is going to take a month of Sunday's to figure out.

Never ceases to amaze me John! And I'm not sure which part amazes more. The fact of having 80 to measure or the fact that you might actually check them all.

Thanks to Mark for his response too.

Maybe another question applies - does an Ambassador coated head usually spin freely over the sides, or fit with just a bit of interference. I only have one snare drum here in FL and I just can't recall my findings in the past. To be specific, I'm inquiring about Dayton speckled era with wrap.
