I had ordered another snare from a dealer, and didn't like it, so I returned it, and - on a whim - decided to get the reissue Rogers Dyna-Sonic (is that the right way to spell it?). I've never owned a Rogers anything before, but had read here ad infinitum about the Dyna-Sonic wooden snares. I also have read some really positive reviews of the reissue.

Well, this thing sounds fantastic! When I can take a snare right out of the box, tighten some tension rods, put it on the stand, point a mic at it, and it sounds great right from the get-go, I know I have a winner. It just has a great sound at high or low tunings. I'm still learning how to adjust the snare tension contraption, but I'm not worried, because this is a keeper. No snare buzz when I hit other drums, either! The finish is a red sparkle lacquer that looks really nice. Bill Detamore did a great job on this one. Highly recommended, thus far.

Beautiful! It’s since that they come tuned with the rail set. I confirmed the Dynas ship with Ambassadors which sound good. I’m currently trying a Diplomat batter. More sensitivity yet brighter. Enjoy!

Yes, a Rogers logo Remo coated Ambassador. Those are my preferred heads (Ambassador coated), so icing on the cake.

Wow! That’s a beauty! Do Rogers make complete drum kits anymore?

There is a new round of reproduction Rogers drums being made right now. You can search here on the forum and find people’s opinions. I haven’t had the chance to inspect or play them myself.

Hang onto the instruction sheet that came with the drum. When you get into trouble fiddling-around with the adjustments (like I did the first few months after I got my Dyna) if you follow the instruction sheet it'll take you right back home again.

Thanks; I did, and am reading it now. I had a feeling someone would give me that advice!
