Re: Dating Guide


Thanks Bruce. I always suspected the throw on the 3732 Blue Glass Glitter Powertone had been changed. The elongated that is on it, is an early version, powertone correct without the D and has the small solid adjusting knob.

I really appreciate the dating information. This is something that is really difficult to be exact about from the dating guides that have been published so far. I have depended mainly on posted information and pics of dynasonics and powertones from original owners and compared those to the dating guide. What I found was that people who purchased their drums new, always punched holes in the dating guide timeline. Thank you.

Re: Dating Guide


I'm watching a 9x13 black tom on ebay. It is similar to my set but has a different style S/N tag. S/N B05432 60-5322 9/72. I haven't yet written down the S/Ns from my set, which I purchased in the summer of '71. On each tag on my set it has Fullerton along with the S/N but no date.

I didn't find this number in the RogersDrums.com dating guide.

Re: Dating Guide


The move to Fullerton, Ca was in 1969, some of the drums shipped had Cleveland tags on them. The first Fullerton tags looked similar Cleveland tags then changed without the border. These were used 1969 to 1972.

The tags changed to the 9/72 style (smaller 5/8" X 1 1/2") in late 1972 till 1975, there were four versions of this tag, but they were all about the same size. These tags because they were small have were prone to fall off of the inside of the shell. The shell interiors were flat gray speckled paint.

Re: Dating Guide


I think in the Rogers Book it mentions the 7 line shells were through ser# 14000, with 5 lines commensing with the >14,000 numbers. That would make my 13,723 a very early 5 fine shell. What is the earliest 5 line ser. number that is known to exist?

Re: Dating Guide


They assembled drums and had parts in boxes on their benches. So as they reach in and pull out badges they might get a 14XXX or if they reached deeper they might pull out a 13XXX. They didn't pay attention the serial numbers, they just built drums.

If a builder was running low on badges he/she might go over to the supply area and get a handful of badges, go back to their work area and toss them into the badge box that still has some badges. So two drums built one after the other might have a 500 or more difference in the serial number.

So one guy is assembling 7 line COB Dynasonic snare drums and someone two tables over starts building 5 line COB Dynasonic snare drums. If one guy needs a badge to finish a drum he/she might walk over and grab one off of another bench.

They had a number of shells and parts for replacements and special orders.

Re: Dating Guide


I have a Red Sparkle 8x12 tom with a Dayton Holiday tag #69067 with the letter F handwritten on the tag. Square tuning rods, beavertails, script logo, low rims, grey interior, 45 degree edges.

I can't for the life of me remember when I bought it. I got it at Franks Drum Shop in Chicago...maybe 1969.

The 20/12/14 are from mid to late 1965 maybe early 1966. The Dynasonic though, is about a 1968.

Jack, your tom was built in 1967, it probably sat in the drum shop in a box for a while.
