CBS closed Rogers in late 84, because ...... well because. They farmed out the name to Island Music Imports, that lasted till the early 90s, when the brand was killed off, the name sold, and it lay dormant till Brooks Mays bought it. They were just beginning to produce real quality drums when the bankruptsy happened. Yamaha got it, and now.... well, if you have seen the kits, then you know.
The drums I have posted pictures of, represent some of the best american drummaking that existed at that time.
