    for best resale collectors value Ludwig Weathermaster white coated single ply heads in my opinion...second best choice for resale collectors value would be the generic white coated drum heads DrumFactoryDirect.com

    What's Your Latest Drum Purchase?

    I have been restoring 1st generation 1968 Rogers R-380's (made by Yamaha) and I am trying out the inexpensive pearl wrap from eBay. I decided on hot pink marine pearl. I filled all the tom mount bracket holes on rack tom and filled holes from non-original tom mount on bass drum then sanded and...

    Re-wrap & restoration of 1968 Rogers R-380 drumset (Yamaha made)

    I got the floor tom wrapped and re-assembled...I am really liking the hot pink marine pearl wrap on these late 1960's Rogers / Yamaha R-380's. I like the classic white coated heads and chrome hardware, very swinging 60's vibe to these drums... I will wrap the bass drum on Monday but am waiting...

    Re-wrap & restoration of 1968 Rogers R-380 drumset (Yamaha made)

    FYI, the inexpensive pearl drum wrap on eBay is thick and overall decent wrap but it arrives with crooked edges so extra time needs to be done to square up the edges.... also, this eBay drum wrap is a bit on the brittle side so poke your holes with awl carefully going slowly from inside to...

    Re-wrap & restoration of 1968 Rogers R-380 drumset (Yamaha made)

    Cool thanks DanC, I honestly assumed Rogers USA were COB hoops like old school Ludwig & Slingerland. Appreciate the education! I'm getting ready to re-wrap these R-380 shells, here's the eBay drum wrap I got, it is good quality thick 0.50mm thick wrap! these R-380 shells are loose fit to modern...

    Re-wrap & restoration of 1968 Rogers R-380 drumset (Yamaha made)

    So today I learned that this first generation late 1960's Rogers R-380 drum shell hardware lug casing shell attachment screws, lug casing insert nuts, and lug tension rod screws, tom mount, everything is metric...so Rogers R-380 drums were definitely 100% totally made by Yamaha, shells...

    Vintage Kit vs "Modern" Vintage Kit

    I only buy and play vintage drums. To me they are "the real thing" and the modern drums being merely imitations. But I only use modern hardware with the only exception of trying to always keep and use the factory rack tom mount wherever possible. vintage drums always require work to look, play...

    Re-wrap & restoration of 1968 Rogers R-380 drumset (Yamaha made)

    God bless you John and thank you, I am sorta interested but without the bass drum lugs your shell would require me to go on massive lifelong hunt for the lugs that fit....the original R-380 (and R-360) Rogers USA drum shell hardware is wildly rare and something I needed. The drum lugs for bass...

    Re-wrap & restoration of 1968 Rogers R-380 drumset (Yamaha made)

    I made an offer and purchased the partial late 1960's Rogers R-380 bass drum that was for sale on eBay. I have stripped off the old black wrap and cleaned up the lugs. Since the tom holder is only partially original (the tom spade mount and vertical arm are original but the mount collar on bass...

    Re-wrap & restoration of 1968 Rogers R-380 drumset (Yamaha made)

    copy that lanebune! thank you! May I ask what you sold them for and how long ago that was? I found a "Marilyns Music" of Baker, Oregon is this the place I should call? I know these old R380 drums have been become quite rare in the marketplace last 10 years but they have "the sound" and look...

    Surely I can't be the only one that can't stand "yellowed" WMP??

    1942 WFL set I owned awhile back in w.m.p. Sure would be cool to keep all these old kits, I do tend to agree yellowing w.m.p. is annoying but it is what is. Cheers from Colorado

    Mystery antique 3" x 14" brass snare drum

    The single post nickel plated brass lugs look straight out of the Duplex Drum co. "jobber wholesale supply" catalog sheets from the 1910's and 20's, the shell is old school "hoop-spun-over/rolled" brass with very high quality soldered nearly invisible seam and excellent attention to detail...
