Hey Johnny
Great looking kit. I absolutely love the onyx wrap. I have no real input or info on the kit other than that and listen to Mike aka mchair303 as he is one of the most knowledgeable Gurus we have on the forum when it comes to Rogers drums.
No matter what ribbing you got from your questions, please keep them coming. I learned tons from the banter and reading the posts. And yes I own all of the books but you know what . . . There is so much info that we can't absorbe. IMHO after years of teaching there are no bad questions, just ones that the person asking wants additional information or affirmation on.

Thanks, I wish one of the Rogers Gurus would chime in on that green Fullerton label.
Anyway, I got them set up for rehearsal tonight. I had to improvise on the right leg, the seller forgot it and he's mailing it to me. I cut down an old drumstick and stuck it in the leg mount.

Maybe they can explain how black ink sometimes fades to blue, red, or green.

Sure. Black ink is made of various color pigment resins. One of the most common is reflex blue which is a royal blue color. Depending on the shop and inks sometimes waste inks from other jobs were added and mixed in to the black ink to stretch it and control waste. So in time the colors fade as most non light fast colors do and expose other base colors. Depending on the print process (4 color or spot colot) black ink and other colors can fade due to UV exposure.

Seeing a few close up picture examples of those green labels they appear to be a true green ink. If one day I'm able to see one in person and examine it I could tell much more. Uneven inking and flaws in the type etc... are good hints of batches to look for.

I wonder if the drums with the green labels were assembled on March 17th by a guy with a great sense of humor named Kelly.

That settles it, Old Joe Rogers' ghost roamed the factory on St. Patrick's Day, and slapped those labels on the drum shells.

Now guys, you're just being silly. If Rogers wanted to celebrate March 17th, I don't think it would have been with a hidden label inside the shells. It would have been this....
