    ANOTHER Rogers Bop Find? Incredible!

    Took a couple of as-found shots outside. That black reso head has to go. Notice the irregular use of an angled swivo to mount the 8x12, and two panels off from typical placement. Custom request? I can't imagine Frank Walters would make such an error without a reason. Tuned them up a bit...

    ANOTHER Rogers Bop Find? Incredible!

    Here's a shot I took last night with the bop kit laid out against my 12 14 20 and tower snare. All 8 drums are Cleveland. I am not at all unhappy with the match in wraps. Dan C you may be on to something with respect to the orientation of the wraps at the factory. Note that the 14x14 in my old...

    I'm pretty sure I lowered his expectations on that kit.

    ANOTHER Rogers Bop Find? Incredible!

    I got a look at the rack and the bass. Typical cracking on the top of the bass, but it looked secure to the shell. They were definitely darker than your usual black onyx.

    ANOTHER Rogers Bop Find? Incredible!

    Silver wrap is the hardest to photograph accurately. Yes the powertone snare definitely seems a bit brighter than the rest of the bop kit, but then again, the Tower snare on my 12 14 20 Rogers SS kit also looks brighter than that kit. Perhaps it's the fact that the snares have so much more...

    ANOTHER Rogers Bop Find? Incredible!

    Had to pick this up yesterday, here in the DC area. One pic in the ad, shown, besides some paper tag shots. No sizes, nothing, except " I've got several other kits for sale". Now that is my kind of hint. I really was hoping it was a 20 so I would be able to resist the temptation to buy, as I...

    A Suggestion about INDe That'll Make Everyone Mad

    For heaven's sake, Josh is going to make ONE less sale because of the name. It's perfect the way it is.

    TAMA GUYS: I have a question

    I'm guessing old dog has found the newer, 90s/2000s nonbirch Superstars, as they were wrapped and came with die-cast hoops. The earlier 80s Superstars had neither. Pics to know for certain.

    TAMA GUYS: I have a question

    No, not permanent. But then again, I'm confused, because I know of no 80's Superstars that were wrapped - all were wood finished.

    1950's Premier Kit on CL?

    Saved the most interesting image for posterity. I wonder if vintage American blue sparkle would fade this severely? Perhaps not, due to the blue sparkle/red sparkle reversibility on old Delmar wrap?

    here are two of my 58/59 duco slingerland M-stamp badges - notice the grommets -

    Singerland wraps which are stamped "M" on the interior? Gold sparkle 1958's with "M."

    I tend to think that those drums were originally a duco-painted pair. Embrace them for what they currently are.

    Tama Artstar info?

    Last year I sold an 8" Artstar Cordia tom, block logo, for $700. Local sale here in the DC area. Extremely hard to find.

    Tama Artstar info?

    Block logo is the earliest, bearing edges were the same on both. The 8 and 10 inch toms go for BIG $. A high quality 24 16 13 12 kit should bring $1k- $1200.

    Rogers Holy grail find.

    Good Heavens! Major Congrats, but I certainly don't understand the immediate flip reflex on something like that.
