longroll. Would you happen to know when Rogers started using the round clockface strainer (without the black backround)? I ask because, I have a, what I believe is a '64-'65, Cleveland, serial # 7553 Powertone that has a '67 on, elongated strainer. I'm thinking that it is not the correct strainer? What are your idea's on this? Also, how can you tell if a snare originally came with a wrap, or not? Thanks. emoticon olddrummer



The Clock Face Strainer started in 1959, the black background ended about 1964, the elongated Swiv-O-Matic strainer started about 1967.

The mounting holes are the same on the Clock Face and the Elongated strainer so some one could have changed it. That serial number is late 1964 early 1965.

Not sure how to answer your question if a snare came wrapped or not. I need more info/details.

Thanks,

Bruce

Re: My Dynasonic Snare Drums


longroll. Thanks for the strainer info, and dating help. I figured that it was one of those years as well, but wanted to confirm it with someone who has been arond Rogers snare's alot longer than myself! Well, as to the Powertone, wraped or not wraped? When I bought the snare, it came with no vent hole grommet, no script logo, and the finish on the shell looked to be a recent re-laquer job. I believe this because an original laquer finish would have been much darker from age. The finish may originally have been the "Wildwood" finish. However, it may have been stripped of it's original Pearl wrap in favor of the present finish? Do you know if Rogers made the drums designated for Pearl wrap slightly smaller in diameter, to compensate for the thickness of the Pearl wrap? Thanks. emoticon olddrummer PS ( I was born in Mill Valley, in '51)

LongRoll. About the Strainer on my Powertone, if you know of, or have a round style clockface strainer, (without the black painted backround), that you have extra of, I would be happy to trade/buy it so that I could obtain the correct one for my snare drum? I've not seen one on e-bay yet. Oh yes, one more thing, the finish underneath the lug's on the snare, is the same color as the rest of the drum! Thanks. emoticon olddrummer

Re: My Dynasonic Snare Drums


All Rogers shells are 1/8" undersized so the heads float. Your drum must have had the pearl removed. Wildwood was only available in 1967.

The vent hole should be two bays to the right of the throw, straight across is where the script metal logo should have been on the outside, and where the paper tag should be on the inside. It covered the bent over nails that held the script badge on. If the tag is in that location and is not torn up, then maybe you can feel the bent over nails under the tag, or maybe someone was able to pull them out without damaging the paper tag.

Does it have an internal muffler? Is the inside painted flat gray?

I do not have an extra clock face throw.

Thanks,

Bruce

Re: My Dynasonic Snare Drums


longroll. You are truly a wealth of very valuable, and welcome information, for that, many, many thanks! emoticon The shell is flat grey inside(although, it appears satin). Yes, it has an internal muffler(black felt). The reference point I use is, the Throw is the First bay! In the second bay to the right of the throw is the vent hole. Directly across from the vent hole is the paper tag. The second bay to the left of the throw is the tone control. The third bay from the left of the throw is the script logo, as is evident of the brad indentaions on the inside of the shell. The outside diameter of the shell measures; 13-13/16" inches across, Pearl for sure. And yes, as soon as you mentioned the "Wildwood" being a '67 only item, I remembered reading it earlier this morning. I've been studying the Rogers book more. I didn't think you had an extra clockface, but I needed to ask. Thank you. If I can return any help, let me know! Magnificent Dyna collection! Thank you again! emoticon emoticon olddrummer

Re: My Dynasonic Snare Drums


I bought it, based on the recommendation that it was one of the finest sounding snare's to play. Are you asking me if it's available? olddrummer

Dyna 1343?


The snare made before this one 1342, is listed in eBay with a damaged shell. What a cowinky dink.

This drum does exist, and I think it is Blue Sparkle. I remember talking to Bobby at the Drum Farm and he had it for a while.

I do have number 1343 (the 343rd Dynasonic made with exterior bage), a 1961 Rogers Dynasonic, fruit stained interior, B & B lugs (no cracks), clock face throw. tall hoops, Blue Sparkle, pointed end badge (early Dynasonic snare drum only), all original in excellent condition.

Thanks,

Bruce
