Rogers dating guide
Rogers dating guide - petite dating
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.
Unfortunately still there is no exact science or way to pinpoint an exact date of a drums manufacture.
The other kit is a Powertone and I am pretty sure it is early 1970's. Lovely kit there,as far as dating goes,the kit will be less expensive in the long run I am pretty sure,even if it turns out it has a novus fetish. I really thought the previous owner bought them new in 63 or so but it seems I'm wrong. 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.
10x13 Powertone, Fullerton #040722; 16x16 Rogers Drums B19118, #605322, 7/72; 14x22 Powertone, Fullertone #29566 Any ideas on ages of the drums? It looks like you have a 20 kick with bowties,1968 or so,the dayton era is when they changed to the later t rods like on your 22"some of the early dayton drums have a flat grey int,later daytons have grey speckled int,along with later swivo drums.. It has a working high hat and pedal, all top of the line Rogers at the time. I will post pictures and all if anyone is interested.
I get emails all of the time with a basic drum description and a serial number from visitors in hopes I can unlock the history of their drum.
I think in general serial numbers do play an important role in the commercial market especially electronics and other high end items.
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.Because when women sense you have the traits he reveals on this video (which btw, have nothing to do with being “alpha”)... Two Rogers three pice kits configured to be a double bass setup. I had a relationship with Rogers drums from 1979 to 2006. The kit below has different tom fittings to my old kit. so those shells are the 5 ply maple and poplar shells. Mea cupla - I forgot that the word "relationship" is offensive to men ... Caddy, I sacrificed my life to have this many posts!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.I am pretty sure the Powertone kit is 1972 as one drumm has a data stamp but I think the Holiday kit is older; maybe late 1960's? There is a whole forum section on dating/serial #'s. I played Rogers back in the early '70s and am psyched to be back. To compliment the vintageness of the set I'd opt to use a vintage snare and ditch the DW. went to Grossman wharehouse picked the blue sparkle 4 piece played it forever, moved to FT Myers Fl and sold it in 1993 the a bunch of Mapex and pearl sets and now own a new Crush kit and wow. : D I think we all thought the same: (Poor Roger, he's gonna be pissed when he finds out). I really thought the previous owner bought them new in 63 or so but it seems I'm wrong.
