Those are some impressive drums, but to my untrained eye, it looks as though you have alot of repeats.
bash, bang, slam, whatever, yeah, ima drummer.

Why the cut-off at 84?

There are no Rogers drums after 1984, only Asian firewood. Right at the time Rogers was producing probably the best drums available in the USA. 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.

Thanks for the reply, I didn't know the history. That's a pisser, sad when something of quality goes south, or ahhh...actually east.

I love coming back periodically to check out your collection...it's awesome. I was hoping you could help me find what seems to be a very rare bass drum spur for my Rogers Big R. I acquired this kit about 10 years ago and one of the spurs was missing, but it's not the traditional memory lock style that I see everywhere online. I have attached a few pictures in hopes that u will know where I can find an original direct fit spur or set of spurs. The one that is missing is the right side if you are sitting at the kit. Thanks in advance! -Tim.

What you have is an Island Music Import Rogers kit, late 80s. Any thing that will fit your bolt pattern should work. Pearl, tama, yamaha, etc.

No kidding...and to think that I thought I had a vintage 1970s kit. I remember reading once that the shells that have the gray speckle coating on the interior of the drums were the less desirable shells. Is that true? These ones have a natural wood finish on the inside and honestly, they sounded pretty good some years ago. They look like 5 ply without any reinforcement rings. I haven't played them in 6 or 7 years, but I'm thinking about cleaning them up. Thanks for the quick reply, I knew you would have the answer! -Tim.
