    Rogers aluminum snares?

    A parts monger got his hands on this one and took it down to the shell with script and grommet still attached. I found a drum from the same era and took the hardware. There are some non nonsensical numbers etched into the shell. Both drums are from the early Dayton era. Weight difference was...

    Rogers oddity sticks

    Thanks to all. Good eye Dan! So I guess the TD is for Tenor Drum? So who else has a pair in the drum rooms out there? Are they also TD 11? They don't give dimensions 64r darn it.

    Rogers oddity sticks

    I've had over sized sticks that were a store/counter display in the past. Bid on these odd short Rogers sticks that are stumpy and heavy. I've checked the catalogs and come up empty. Anybody else have a pair or can tell me what I have? Thanks in advance. Gary

    attn Ploughman Rogers characteristic

    Thanks, Steam!! As I went to check the old paper catalogs. Started out as the orchestra throw off as lanebug has(long arm but no twist). By the time of the nubby arm with a twist it was called a Universal throw off. The reason for this thread was to see if Poughman still has this drum that...

    attn Ploughman Rogers characteristic

    This cool Classmate with throw off came to me today. Usually that model just had a tension-er. There was a drum going around with this butt plate in this time period. This is another example of it popping up on a Rogers drum.

    Rogers Astoria

    Volume 12 #4 Fall/Winter 2002. Your early script logo and eagle badge make total sense. The scripts were short lived before the standard eagle badge stopped. That eagle flew on some drums into the very early 60s. Mainly marchers though.

    Rogers Astoria

    Dave, Tommy nailed it. Made with 3 different badges and over a few years. Here are some numbers for your research that I documented a while back. It is from an article from the NSMD I wrote on pdp in the early 2000s. Safe to say that drum sets were matched and tagged with consec numbers...

    Help with "Rogers" Paper Tags/stickers...

    Yes. Paper tags are on Grossman era drums. Aside for 4 protype metal(chrome finish) 1954 snare drums. They have the rectangular draped Union Brand on them. They have the sideways O pictured above on the Scotti tag above.

    Help with "Rogers" Paper Tags/stickers...

    Dan thanks for thinking I might know. AS for the T I don't know. I have seen many eagle early birds and sometimes they make sense like T on a tom label or P on a parade (saratoga) drum etc. But no I've seen enough to draw a blank on the capital letters defining the drum. Maybe for record...

    Purple Diamond Pearl Rogers Drum set. What's it worth

    Now that's a drum set. A fine example of purple diamond pearl! A dealer would ask $3500 for it. I'd say a private sale with no fees should sell for 2500-3K. It is very rare to find pdp in the first place. To find a 4pc that is matched and the bold purple is tough enough.

    Pre 1955 Rogers drum sets and snares

    Dan thanks! The eagle landed on OH Covington goodness in 1955. Grossman bought the Co. in 1952. 1954 paper found shows the drums with the rectangular draped badges. In the OH era they still used a non eagle badge on a marching drum in the late 1950s catalog. The lowest that was in...

    Pre 1955 Rogers drum sets and snares

    Cleveland Rogers passed away in 1952. The R lug 1940s drums few years before and after the war wasn't a big seller. The transition from NJ to OH in the early 1950s were the transition years. That's what I was after. The drums and old paper told me. The information is limited and incomplete...

    Pre 1955 Rogers drum sets and snares

    Thanks! Aside from the 5pc Supreme outfit there were only 3 other sets offered for those years. A Joe Thompson transition drum set for sure. The 12 and 13 both sport only 5 lugs. Eclectic interiors with edges that curve inward like a bongo. The head touch the head 1" smaller than the drum.

    guilty as charged thanks jp! I have the 5pc Supreme outfit 1950-1953. There was one other set like it that Cherie Willo had on her webpage called it the prodogy set. It had 1 tom up top. Been hoarding the early snares for the past 20 yrs. Anybody else....cricket.cricket...the sound of one...
