    Nicko Mcbrian has switched from Remo to Code

    Code is owned by BDC so this makes sense.

    Early Avedis Zildjian H-Hat History

    I wonder if they’re meant for a sock stand. They have a normal profile. And TOP doesn’t necessarily mean hi hat, at least the words “hi hat” aren’t on the cymbal. They’re pretty light- I can put em on a scale tomorrow.

    Help needed on this old Leedy snare…

    It looks like your rims have a molded/or pressed in engraving. The later hoops with that pattern are hand engraved. That drum should sound great! Be super gentle with that throwoff- they’re the weak link on that drum.

    Is this ride cymbal in "good" condition? - RELISTED & SOLD.

    Jesus what a turd! I love how, as you mentioned, the seller has now gone to great lengths to show the isuues with the cymbal. Probabaly a great thing that you haven't heard from them. Yeesh

    Rogers Shells - Species of the plies ?

    Mustango- true old growth wood was long gone by the era you’re referring to. Compared to what’s used today it probably seems like old growth but it’s not.

    You might have posted about Rogers a lot, but not me!

    This was as big as my Rogers stash got. I sold the gold FT, wine red ripple set, and the red sparkle set in the last couple of weeks. I’ve since added a matching Cleveland silver sparkle 16” to the Cleveland 20/12/14.

    rogers collets

    I just received a 16” silver sparkle. It has a tall hoop, so I was a little hesitant but, thank god, it has the 8-32 lug screws. Whew!

    Yep- the lug bosses don’t have enough meat due to the #10 screws. The bosses tend to break when the lugs are removed decades later. Ask me how I know haha.

    Vintage Rogers

    Value is dependent on many factors. Condition/sizes/originality, etc. appears to be from the golden era of Rogers though. Get us more pics and info :)
