There is an extensive section devoted to Rogers Drums over on our Vintage Drum Guide web site.

What makes this snare unique is the snare mechanism.

On most snare drums, tightening the snares also pulls the snares tighter against the bottom head.

I conducted a quick internet fact finding mission regarding the Rogers "Big R" line of drums and, to the best of my knowledge, these drums appear to have been introduced in the early 1980's. Rogers name spent time in the late 80's/90's on imported Big R badge shells under guidance of Island Music and Brooks May company. There may or may not be a serial number, but only the good drums say "USA" which means thery were made in the USA.

Can any of my forum friends shed some light on this and/or give me your opinion of these drums? These drums are crap and do not have USA on the badge. Remember - USA on the badge is the key to good Rogers. The five ply shells with Memriloc hardware and the Big R badge were introduced in the mid seventies.

Anyone have an idea of the year or grade of this drum? Jim I just unearthed an older snare drum I've had sitting around. That doesn't mean to say you wont get decent sounds out of the Super Ten, but there are many better sounding snare drums out there. There are always lots of Rogers chrome snare drums on there.

Rogers chrome snares are not highly thought - really the only Rogers snare worth having is the Dynasonic (wood), but that's more of a collectors item than a studio drum.

Anyone have an idea of the year or grade of this drum? Jim I'm not a Rogers expert, but I'd say it was a 70's drum.
