Default BS&T, Colomby and Rogers

This video is interesting for a number of reasons, but from a vintage drum point of view I noticed a few things of particular interest:

1. Colomby's Top Hat setup has the newer version of the Rogers double-tom mount. He must have caught that right on the transition.
2. He has removed the resonant head from both the bass drum and the floor tom (watch out for those bearing edges!).
3. He reaches for items from the nifty stick tray at about 2 minutes 10 seconds. It appears to be mounted to his crash cymbal stand.

I'm also reminded of how much I liked his drumming.

Looks like they had some kind of fun there. Pretty energetic performance all the way around.

I usually see Colomby behind a Premier set.

Looks like a pink ripple pearl wrap.

Gelb Music in Redwood City has a new set in the same color for about $3700 without matching snare if any of you are interested in one.

Did he use the pink Rogers set on the second album? That is just such an amazing album.

From the photos he seems partial to his Rogers Dynasonic, though.

Yes, he was bad like Buddy. He had a Premiere endorsement and still used the Dyna. Guess Premiere wasn't watching as closely as Rogers was when Buddy stuck in the the Fibes snare.

I read an interview where he said he took the Premiere deal because he pulled them into supplying instruments for the whole band.

It's also interesting that he liked matched sized toms up top. Two 12's on Rogers and two-13's on Premiere.

That was phenomenal! Thank you. Never have seen this before. And man, wasn't Clayton-Thomas the best ? I have always loved his voice. Very expressive with lots of colors and emotion. Just wonderful.
