5 lines across the shell, oval badge, serial numbers in the 5’s , white muffler, and one piece bottom snare guard put this in the mid-70’s range.
Swivomatic snare strainer, secure on/off locking position. Roger’s Swivomatic line of hardwares were very innovative back in the day, even artists endorsing other drum companies would install swivomatic tom mounts and use Rogers stands with their kit.
The snare bridge – this is the key feature of a Dynasonic snare drum. The bridge allows the snare wire tension to be set independent to how tight the wires are pressed against the shell. It does take some fine tuning though , I had to spend some time on a vintage Rogers forum to determine the best way to set up the snare.
This drum is loud! I played it beside a 14×5 Acrolite and it has more highs, more response, and a more solid tone. Just a honking beast.
However I’ve decided to let it go to someone who can make more use of it, as I have been doing all my teaching and playing on electric kits lately. Much like the Ayotte kit that I used to have, great stuff, wrong time. Much happier to see it being used.
