Re: My Rogers BDP kit - a work in progress


Nice job on the restoration. I picked up an early Dayton BDP a few years ago in 22-13-16. I also have matching Luxor, Tower, and Powertone snares.

Sort of the same history as you. Parents bought me a kit when I was in 5th grade that was a no name in BDP. When I saw the Rogers kit all those years later I knew I had to pick it up. It was in pretty good shape, but needed a few parts replaced. It sounds great!

Here's the 13 and 16 with the Luxor.

Re: My Rogers BDP kit - a work in progress


It's been four months since my last reply. Man life gets in the way sometimes...
Not much news on the drums but I got some hardware. I'll get pics up soon. I scored a big lot of pedals on the auction site. It said in the ad that there were no complete pedals but I put together a "Jet" pedal (399) from the parts and what I had already. There was most of a sandcast Swiv-O-Matic, a mostly complete Rocket 398 and most of a die cast SOM. Then a whole bunch of footboards and a hi-hat footboard. I'm going to keep the Jet and older S-O-M and sell the rest. No big prizes here but nice user stuff.

One interesting thing; some of the footboards seem to never have been used. They have shop wear but were never polished or assembled. Like they came right out of being cast, were tumbled, and then set aside. There are some interesting differences between them as well. They would be a good candidate for a type study. If anyone cares, I can post the pics but I'm no historian.
