    **SOLD** EARLY 20’s Ludwig & Ludwig 6.5x14 heavy brass

    A great heavy brass two piece shell in a very desirable size. Attached 1922 catalogue listing. Replacement strainer makes it playable. No extra holes is great! Original banded steel hoops. Like the idea of adding 50’s Ludwig nickel over brass triple flange hoops and playing it! Clean, but...

    Rogers Experts Only Please

    A lot of anomalies. Tube lugs are not correct, should be a 3 ply shell, and incorrect strainer for an Eagle badge. Would need to see better interior photos to get a better idea as to what is going on.

    Ride suggestions for using rods...

    Rogers: Were there ever clear interior, non flat grey, Toms on a Cleveland/Dayton era kit?

    Could be employee, could be endorser, could be special order. The norm was flat grey interiors as you know.

    Earthtone head logo removal and decal made?

    Gramps..... or.... if you have a good artist friend, you could match the color of the head, airbrush over the logo, and have someone reproduce the Jos B Rogers signature.
