I know it's a longshot, but what the heck.

Looking for a Rogers R360 "Twister" kit (with 18" kick drum), preferably in wine red ripple.

For gigging, so condition not the most important.

That's freaky! Rail mount holder and flat base stands. Truly unusual. I thought I knew all about the 80's low end Rogers, but I never saw that one.

The 80's Rogers 360's were made by Yamaha. The shells were the usual luan, not great wood, but the drums were pretty well made for the price.

Your chances of finding one of those are about one in a billion. But you never know....

A little late on the trigger, but this needs rectified. There is great confusion about the 360/380 series drums from Rogers. The drums on the catalog sheet are not from the 80's . . . they are from the late 60's / early 70's. They were made by Yamaha in Japan and were actually pretty good drums . . . they have the oval badge. I believe the shells were birch. I have had a couple of these kits and they are not the standard “Asian Firewood” vertical grain mahogany.

The ones from the 80's were made in Taiwan by Joe Chen Percussion . . . they have the rectangular badge and they were pretty much junk . . . oops, I’ll probably upset someone by calling them that, so forgive me, but that is my opinion of them. . . they are super low-end . . . is that better . . . NAD :cool:

I had a set of Rogers R 360's from the late 60's early 70's. They did sound decent. I have heard they were Yamaha shells. From what I remember, the seams of the shells were angled and they were painted gray inside.They had numbers stamped in them, which I believe were date stamps. The lug design was similar to Ludwig's. In fact, I believe you can put Ludwig classic lugs on them because the hole spacing is the same.

There is a drum shop in Portland that has these, or, at least had them as of a month or so ago.

Portland, OR. I saw it at Revival Drum Shop. I think it had the original snare, too. Google them and give 'em a call. From what I've seen, these are RARE!

There is a 360 Kit F/S on St. Louis craigslist. The guy would probably take 75 bucks been on there for months.

Hey Art,

You ever find your Twister?

I had one back in the 80's.
Not a bad little kit. Wish I'd kept it and fixed it up. Oh well. :rolleyes:

Right era. Right series. Wrong model.
That's not a Twister. That's a Rock Solid.
Rock Solid used larger shells - 20/12/16 and it should have a chrome steel 14x5 snare drum.
That kit seems to be in pretty good condition, though.
Someone's gonna end up with a nice kit.
