Rogers came to the United States and started crafting drum heads.His son began making drums in the mid-1930s at a Farmingdale, New Jersey location.Some of my bass lugs are bent and he can make new ones.[commercial link deleted - please see forum rules] I have always wondered why there wasn't a Rogers thread but never wanted to start one because I dont have any of my own.During the twentieth century their drums enjoyed popularity with musicians spanning from the dixieland jazz era in the 1920s to classic rock in the 1960s and 1970s, but was particularly associated with many notable big band and swing drummers of the 1940s and 1950s.

Good to see guys still finding and playing these kits. I've been playing my Pearls all the time, but I'm getting an itch to break out the Rogers again.
This and other innovations (for example, a remarkably shallow—4/1000"—snare bed) made possible by the novel tensioning arrangement gave the drum a relatively crisp and recognizably clear sound.
Dyna-Sonics were made from about 1961 until the mid-80's.
This device provided a means by which the longitudinal tension of the snare wires could be adjusted independently of the vertical force holding the snares against the bottom head.
As a result, the snares could be tensioned as tightly as the drummer wanted without having to pull the snares against the head so hard they constrained (choked) the head's vibration.
