Fullerton blue strata pearl with two badges


This seems odd to me but I don't know much about Rogers from Fullerton. I was under the impression that BSP was long gone by the time Rogers was putting two script badges on a tom. I just bought one with badges on either side of the mount. The badges and label seem authentic. It's a 13" and in fair condition although the interior finish work was sloppy. I rubbed 40 years of dirt and nicotine off the wrap, replaced the beavertail lugs (pitted) and replaced the mount (looked like it broke off and was welded back [sign in to see URL] ugly). The wrap pattern does not match the BD and FL but the color does. Wonder if this was at the tail end of BSP run?

Re: Fullerton blue strata pearl with two badges


All 3 Strata colors were shown in the 1970 catalog. The 1973 catalog still showed Black Strata. The other 2 were discontinued somewhere between those 2 catalogs, although they were probably still available until very near the release of that 1973 catalog.

The 2-badge era began a few years before 1973...

Re: Fullerton blue strata pearl with two badges


As always, thanks Dan C. The sharing of your knowledge is much appreciated. The strata patterns are markedly different from my old kit. I bought a Luxor and 12 inch tom that match very closely but the two other toms are much different, one is a Cleveland and the other is a Fullerton. It is the texture of the patterns that vary. I really don't care as they look terrific after some effort. JUst a bit of an anomaly that might reflect different techniques in wrap production.
