    Rogers Pirate Badge

    A few holics were talking about Rogers badges. The Pirate badge is somewhat rare, sometimes called the Jolly Rogers. The badge was a very short run used in 1958/59 (the Rogers Book). I found there was a little more info about it, so I felt it would be good to pass this on with DFO. I was...

    Anyone know Dany Pepermans? - The Jokers, Belgium 1964

    Just saw Dany Pepermans playing The Jokers on Facebook. It's a Trixon drum set and somewhat unique playing - left hand "open close" thumb and a nice right hand driving the ride. 15" (or maybe 16") hats, and plays left on the butt end stick (he used that on other songs too). The guitarist is no...

    Zilco stamp / Kassan stamp found!

    I just found a stamped Zilco splash (not constantinople, and not Azco) that was also stamped with a Kassan stamp (inside the crescent star). This Zilco was made from 1949 up to 1957 (7/16 hole. I THINK this one is 1954/55 from seeing the bell). This was made by Avedis Zildjian, just like...

    What is the Be-Bop ink stamp with A Zildjians?

    I've seen Avedis Zildjian cymbals with the ink stamp "Be-Bop" and "BEBOP" in the 40's, 50's, and 60's. One has a bigger bell and a flatter profile (40's). Others have looked the same as any other "A", but an ink stamp Be-Bop on the cymbal. The size being only 18", 20", and 22", and medium or...

    Zenjian Cymbals... the Code

    Hi all, I wanted to see if I could find out the "scribbles" of Zenjian cymbal stamps. Here it is. The top is and old Egyptian Coptic language with a bit of Arabic. It says... "Son of Avedis Zildjian." Armand, the son of Avedis III, was born in 1921. The "A" cymbals started with Avedis (1929)...

    Bronze

    I just think it's funny that cymbals "started in turkey." It didn't. It started in china and the best bronze was from Java in the 1300's. This is the same bronze with copper, tin, silver, gold, arsenic, phosphorus and other traces. The sent them to India and then to other places like turkey...

    The First Pasha Cymbals...

    I have one of the first Pasha cymbals from Rogers. It is small, 11 3/4, and very heavy. The bell is very small as well. This is not made with Italian rotocasting. This was made in Istanbul. I knew that the cymbal was from Istanbul, I could hear it and see it, but I could not see a stamp...

    Rogers Heads

    Hi, I have two heads from Rogers. One is a 58/59 with the early logo from that time. The other is a bigger R maybe from mid 60's. It is a "Weatherking A-I" ... not an "I-A" or "A-I Weatherking" the normal way. Does anyone know about this? I don't know this head well at all. I know Remo very well...
