Black Onyx and very clean wraps, seams and hardware. ...while you ponder that, somebody with expertise in Rogers drums will probably be along shortly to assist you... The kit below has different tom fittings to my old kit. When/if I gain myself a new life you might have a chance to catch up. I had a feeling that Russell's kit (the twins :) predated the kit with which I had an extended R-word. The 9/72 on the tag was used for several years, so it doesn't mean anything. I think the tags only said Dayton on them from like 67-69 before the move to Fullerton.
In fact, this “gold fish secret” is THE #1 thing you MUST understand if you’re serious about creating instant attraction with your “type” of woman, no matter how hot she is.
Earlier catalog examples do exist, but are rare and expensive to acquire.
In most cases they also included a host of other band instruments and items related to the music business.
In the 60's Insurance companies made it mandatory that serial numbers be put on items so they can be documented.
Unfortunately drum companies never really prescribed to any code of documenting a drum based on that serial number.
I had a relationship with Rogers drums from 1979 to 2006. what I know is the swivo-matic hardware went to memriloc in 1976, so ... In '78, Rogers went to the XP-8 shell, an 8 ply all maple (first all maple shell in town) ...
Like someone here said,drums with the 9/72 label were made from 9/72 to 1975/1976 when memriloc era started,if yours say fullerton calif, prob 1969 thru 1971 to maybe 1972. The REAL punchline on this kit is that I bought the whole thing plus 5 zildjian cymbals, cases, some old ludwig hardware and pedals, a new hi hat stand, new roc and soc throne for 0. already and so far the drums themselves cost me dollars! I have a five piece Rogers Holiday kit labeled "Dayton" however it has solid gray paint rather that speckled. I am starting to try to price this set and am looking for help. Scott Silver Sparkle 20" bass 16" Floor Tight dry sounding matching snare that is my favorite drum, although the floor tom is second because of the resonance. Has everything including a box for hardware that is made of some material not produced for a long time. Dayton serial number 67491 All drums purchased at one time...In most cases the best way to estimate the date of a drum is its physical characteristics.Fortunately drum companies since the 40's were good at printing catalogs.As collectors and historians we have to settle for a date range or a specific year at best.That being said some drums did get date stamped on the inside shell and that is the most accurate indication when a drum was made.Another thing to look for on your kit would be the mounting brackets on the toms and kick,if they say rogers usa on them they would be machined rather than cast,the machined collets/mounts were phased out 1968/1969 or so I have heard. I will post pictures and all if anyone is interested.
