Being new to Rogers, and the Dynasonic in particular, you might enjoy this video where a comparison is made between it and the Rogers PowerTone. These were Rogers two top of the line snare drums. Though they are both wooden shell models in this demo, I think it captures the elements that distinguish the two. The PowerTone has a more open sound that would tend to project further in most cases - thus the name. The Dynasonic is a more controlled sound and somewhat more crisp. Both have their place, but do have a different sound.

The primary designer, Joe Thompson, put a lot of thought into that drum including the use of the frame. It covers the element of tensioning the snares without choking the head (somewhat covered by the PowerTone too using a relatively shallow snare bed depth), but also provided protection for the snare wires themselves.

Enjoy the drum!
Nice video! That guy is pretty impressive. I didn't catch who he is.
I can't wait to get this drum back together and see how it compares to my existing drums. You can't have too many snare drums I always say!

Thanks Dan
