This is an early example of a Rogers Powertone snare drum. The drum is in excellent condition for its age (Cleveland paper tag).

Rogers Wood Dynasonic Snare Drum
 
Description:
- 5 1/2 x 14 (stand not included)
- Wood shell/varnished interior
- Silver Sparkle
- Late 60's
- Serial # - 9847
 
Comments:

It's believed that the Dynasonic was designed with Buddy Rich in mind. It was made to be the most sensitive snare drum on the market. But opinions differ on this drum.

Some players like it, others do not. In any case, the silver sparkle on this drum has faded due to exposure to the elements in various clubs and bars.

 

Rogers White Marine Pearl Powertone Snare Drum
Description:
- 5 x 14
- Wood shell/dark grey interior
- White Marine Pearl wrap
- Mid 60's
 
Comments:

The Rogers Powertone was the work horse snare drum for the company. It shared the clockface strainer with the Rogers Dynasonic, but the similarity ended there.

Earlier models, like this one, had a grey sprayed interior. Later, the inside of the shell was changed to a speckled grey.

Many drummers endorsed these drums during the day. They compare quite nicely to present day snare drums.

This drum was Roger's answer to the Ludwig Supraphonic 400 Snare Drum. This is an early model with a low serial number, # 0736.

It has the standard clock face strainer and the Rogers script logo.

 

 

Rogers Super Ten Snare

Description:
- 5 1/2 x14
- Chrome over steel shell
 
Comments:

The Rogers Super Ten Snare Drum was the Rogers Drum Company's answer to the Ludwig Supraphonic 400. It has a steel shell with the clock face snare strainer. This particular drum has a low serial number and the standard Rogers script identifying badge.

Even though this model has "fallen through the cracks" so to speak, and largely been forgotten, it's still a fine snare drum.

Rogers Metal Powertone Snare

Description:
- 5x14
- Early 70's Drum
- 8 Self-Aligning Lugs, 20 Strand Snappy Snares
- Swiv-o-matic Strainer
 
Comments:

The workhorse of the Rogers Snare Drum line. Perhaps not as popular as the wood model, nevertheless this drum delivers the goods.

Interestingly enough, this drum was offered as standard on only some of the Rogers kits of the time.

 

Rogers Black Dynasonic Snare Drum

Description:
- 5x14
 
Comments:

Every drummer has their favorite drum and many drummers search for their "Holy Grail", if you will. This could be a drum that their idols played or a drum that they always lusted after.

For me, that drum is the Rogers Wood Dynasonic snare drum. Many famous drummers played this drum including Buddy Rich and Louis Bellson. It was the flagship snare drum of the Rogers drum company and the idea behind the drum was to make the most responsive snare drum possible.

The distinctive Dynasonic snare frame allowed the snares to sit evenly across the snare head. This would allow the snare wires to vibrate freely and not "choke" up.

That being said, the drum is rather finicky to tune and a number of drummers don't care for the Dyna. As many drummers who swear by the Dynasonic, there's a equal number who swear at it.
