    Modern Drummer...

    How I wished there had been a magazine for drummers back in th 60s but the only musician's magazine available at my local newspaper/magazine/tobacco shop was Downbeat. They rarely featured any articles about drummers and the only drum related ads were the small monthly ads for Paiste Formula 602...

    First Time Experience w/15” Hi Hats.

    I've been playing 15" New Beat hats since '82 when I bought them to replace my 15" over a 14" Avedis Zildjians that I lost in a nightclub fire. I'm currently using them in an 18-piece big band. The band always knows where the beat is even when I'm playing with brushes.

    Bass reso head without brand logo?

    Aquarian's logo is very small and at the bottom of the head. That's what I use on my Rogers.

    Rogers Big R

    Great drums and great price. Grab 'em before somebody else does. Several years ago I sold a 12/13/16/22 Big R set for $800.

    OT: Better than getting any drum gear!

    A big Michigan grocery chain limited their customers to FIVE packages of bathroom tissue per person!!! Duh. Their daily shipments sold out in half an hour. I wonder what college their management team graduated from.

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

    When I was younger I hated WMP. Rather, I preferred the contrast of BDP or black sparkle with white heads. WMP with white heads just didn't make it and yellowed WMP gave me the creeps. Then I came into possession of a yellowed WMP Rogers set that changed my mind. It looked so warm and cozy and...

    Feeling Toward Red Sparkle Drums!

    I always preferred Rogers glass glitter wraps to other brands' sparkle wraps. The glass glitter wraps had actual shards of glass embedded in a black substrate. The others used bits of foil embedded in a white substrate.

    Our gear when we are gone...

    At one time I had 7 vintage Rogers collector's grade kits in my basement. After I retired I imagined my wife selling off those beauties at $100 a pop after my demise. I sold off my collection for a satisfactory profit and am down to one player's grade Rogers set and two snare drums. I had a...

    Stick holder / tray ?

    I have a Rogers fiberboard stick tray from the 60s and love it. Unfortunately they're no longer made. They rarely show up on eBay and when they do, they're usually in pretty rough condition. The second generation was blue metal and held up better than the fiberboard but are even harder to come...
