Think I just did a great Rogers deal

Postby Dude_on_Drums » Wed Dec 24, 2008 3:10 pm

Hey guys.

I thought I'd share this...

Just got back from some guy's attick with a Rogers DynaSonic and a Rogers Superten. They are both in mint condition (jut a little dust...)
Got them together for 100 Euro's (don't know how much that is in Dollars), and I'm feeling great now.

My Rogers adventure has begun.

Blessed be...

Thanks, man.

I slapped on some new skins, tuned 'em and used them at band practice.
That Dynasonic is loud as hell !!!

I love them both... A whole lot...
Need some more Rogers...
Soon...

By the way, Ploughman : how do you tune your snares, and what skins do you use?

Blessed be...

I have several Rogers snare drums.
Basically I use very similar tuning regardless of head choice.
The stock Rogers recommendation was 2 turns above fingertight on top, 2.5 on bottom. Both for Dynasonics and Supertens. You can work up or down from that. Your Dynasonic frame should be well centered when the throwoff is engaged. The snare frame also should sit loosely agaisnt the head. Snare tension is achieved independently from the throw off tensioning knob, by using the tension screw on the snare frame. This should be only finger tight, (Do NOT use a screw driver) just enough to make the wires sing. Loosen the Throw off tension till the frame disengages from the head, set your wire tension as described. Engage the throwoff, and gradually bring up the snares with the Throwoff tension knob untill you get snare response. Your frame should still be loose against the head. The idea is for the wires to just kiss the head. You must use wires specifically made for the Dynasonic frame. Replacements are available from puresound. I have a 68 Dynasonic with original wires on it. Same for my 77, and 82 year drums. I have the Puresound Dynasonic wires on a couple other drums. They are a very adequate replacement. Properly set up, your Dynasonic should have good snare response from the bearing edge to center. And it will not choke.

I have....... original Rogers diplomat batter, Remo Diplomat coated batter, Evans J1 Etched batter, Remo Coated Ambassador Batter. The Dynasonics came with a Remo Coated Diplomat batter, Remo Ambassador Snare Side. The Dynasonic is a very sensitive, responsive, and LOUD drum. The Superten is a very lively drum in its own right. The Evans J1 Etched is a fabulous brush head, very close to diplomat weight, and the etching doesnt wear off like a coated head. Plus, straight from the box without prep, it plays brushes very well. It also has a fantastic stick response. Both of these are fast playing drums, stick response is unbelievable.

Thanks for all your advice.
I did tune them 2 turns above fingertight. But I tuned top and bottom the same. I'll give it a try with the bottom turned up a bit.

My Dynasonic is COB, but I don't know what material the Superten is made off. Steel, I guess.
Anyways: I'm so pleased with my purchase that I can't wait to buy some more Rogers stuff.

I'm looking for a Big R kit now. 2 bassdrums, 4 toms, 2 floortoms and preferably in a chrome finish.
It's to be used in my Thin Lizzy tribute band.
After all, that's the reason I checked out Rogers : the drumsound on "Live and Dangerous"
Is there anything I should look out for when buying a Big R?

Thanks in advance, Ploughman.
Your advice is much appreciated.

Blessed be...

The Dynasonic is 1975. COB. Throw off tension knob is replaced. If you come across a Rogers dampener from ebay, you can use the knob and shaft for the Dynasonic Throw. Simple disassembly, reassemble with the dampening knob and shaft as a replacement. You seem to be missing the Dynasonic snare frame?
I did not see the badge on the SuperTen.

For the big R............... XP 8 .......eight ply all maple, 1979-84. There is a nice kit on ebay lots of toms.

Indeed, I am missing the snare frame. :oops:
Thought I did a great deal, but it seems to be a rip-off.
I found one on a "second-hand" site, though, for about 50 dollars, so I guess it will be here soon.I'll keep you posted.
Thanks for all your help.

Blessed be...

Both drums for about 200 USD,............is a fantastic deal. Even with the missing parts. Dont be down, because where you are... that was an impossibly good find.

Yeah, I'm allready over it. You know, the Dynasonic sounds really good, even without that frame.
I didn't even know that there was a frame, until I took a close look at your pics.
I'll get a good pic from the Superten's badge and put it here.

Can't find the kit you said on ebay.
Some other lucky bastard maybe has.
