    It doesn't get much better than early Beavertail drums. However with repair to the BB lugs you have, they should last decades, and be quite serviceable. I wouldn't change them.

    Ploughman, been a while since I tapped your expertise. I just bought, not yet received, a 1962 Festival set in Blue Sparkle. Some of the BnB lugs have been repaired, others not yet. What are your thoughts of the 1962 drums? In the scope of Rogers history, is any year considered the "best?" I was really torn because while BnB are pretty, Beavers are reliable. Love to hear your feedback.

    Sorry, I can't figure out how to post a picture. He called it White Swirl, from Dayton.

    There is no white ripple. Could you get some pics? White Ripple is a wrap that was or still is available now. I remember seeing it at jamming sam or one of the other online wrap sources. Pics would really help.

    I stumbled on a white ripple kit. I've sent a request for more info ie: Dayton or Cleveland. It has BT lugs. 3 pcs. Ask is $700 which seems a little high. Is this a pretty collectable kit? I don't recall seeing white ripple before.
    Appreciate your thoughts.
    PS: I ended up getting the '66 7 line. Love it.

    Either one would be a nice score. Condition is everything. I paid 300 for this one. It needed 1 tension washer. And I did nothing else to the drum, except change heads. Two months ago. Badge Number 3689

    Hi Ploughman,

    I;m buying a 7 line with beavertail lugs and swivel strainer. $375. The guy is kinda local and offered me a 7 line clockface with BT lugs for $500. I did't want to spend $500 but is that the holy grail of Dynasonics and will regret it forever?? please advise.
