Default Re: Odd Marketing at Rogers

I don't find the tri-onyx to be very appealing. I also think that the prices of the new Rogers drums are out of line with what drummers would pay for them. As for tri-colored drums, I never liked Red/Silver/Blue bands of wrap. My lucky find of a late sixties Slingerland bop-sized set (12-14-20) was one of the best vintage drum purchases I ever made. The bands of Red Glass Glitter and Blue Glass Glitter were easily in 9 out of 10 condition under the grime that covered them. Each shell had two bands of wrap that were that horrible White Sparkle. The filthy damaged white bands had delaminated and were peeling off of the shells. That made it easy for me to strip those ugly damaged bands of white off of the shells. Precision sent me replacement bands of vintage White Marine Pearl that were cut to size. Somewhere along the way, I acquired enough White Sparkle wrap if I ever want to return the drums to original condition. But, I don't think that I will.

No matter how far you push the envelope, it is still stationery.
