    20” Rogers bass drums: MAGIC

    Articulate, easy to play, great tone, punches way above its weight class. That was the main quality I remember and what brought me back home. These are gems.

    Mojo and patina or dirt and rust?

    I ask this as I have been cleaning up my Champagne Sparkle 1971 Rogers kit. I know that drummers are (in general, speaking) different in their attitude towards rash, scars, rust, etc. on a drum set. Me, also being a guitar player have taken the “earned battle scars” aesthetic as cool. This...

He happened upon some natives while on his trip to America, and...

    What is the secret sauce in a 20” Rogers bass drum?

    They sound like cannons. I have one. I am wanting to build a small kit with a 20” bass drum, but ONLY if the bass drum can sound like a 20” Rogers from 60s through 1971.

    O.T. Exploring new TV

    I became tired of AT&T overcharging, so I went with another provider. My basement TV didn’t get new service, so I am relying upon my Firestick. After all, I just need something on to distract from the fact that I am walking or riding hundreds of miles to nowhere LOL This Freevee is a trip. I...

    My former full-time job was as a hairdresser. I was quite successful at one point. As time marched on, the job didn’t provide what was needed, so this became my part time job. It’s a very lucrative part time job. That being said, this part time job isn’t without pitfalls. Case in point: I have...

    Who has built a kit using Nordic shells?

    Right now, this is a pie in the sky deal; however- I want something unique and different when things turn around. I am thinking power 4: 26” bass drum, 13” rack and 18” floor in either Maple/Gum or Mahogany. 6 plies.

    O.T. The travails of switching phone service

    Ever so tired of getting ripped of by AT&T and their ever so crummy service, I decided to go a different route. For one thing, AT&T has enhanced internet, but it literally ends at the beginning of my street. FAIL! I either can work from home or have a Ring door bell. I chose working from home...

    Pitched snares: not a gimmick

    Wondering what in the heck to do with my Trixon copper snare, I changed the batter head from the Remo UT. That helped, but the snare action was still weird. Do I try and source a vintage Rogers Dynasonic or a hard to find modern Ahead set up? No, not for this cheap drum. Enter FatCat Pitched...

    So does listening to jazz give you jazz hands?

    I have been afraid of listening to jazz, because I do NOT want jazz hands. Which jazz artist encourages jazz hands the most?

    The wild tales of Jeremiah Gretsch

    A long, long time ago, there was a budding entrepreneur named Jeremiah Gretsch. He was an intrepid fellow, who was constantly reinventing himself and common household items. Take, for example, his fascination with the number five: he took the traditional Colt pistol and modified it to only...

    O.T. Just was Smished

    I just had the “accidental” wrong number text. I informed them that they had the wrong number. I was then told that I am a good person and it was fate that we met. Then it was the “my name is (female name) and I am 35 years old” answer. I say that I am Dumpy and I am 50. Then the photo exchange...

    O.T. Who has taken to a motorized bicycle to save money commuting?

    Finally had it! I need a motorized bicycle to get to and from my hair job on Saturdays. It’s not a far commute, but far enough that it can be a pain in the gas tank; also- we are down to one car. I may as well make the commute economical and fun! Will include pix soon!
