Rogers Dynasonic Snare Drum
Powerful Sound, Promising Value
It is a tribute to the Rogers drum company that two of their stellar lines are among the most collectible snare drums around. The Rogers Dynasonic snare drum models available on the market go quickly, and they bring in a very nice price. Experts believe that these drums will continue to rise in value, making them an investment grade instrument. Oh, and it might be worth mentioning that their value is attributable to a some of the most robust sound ever made by a line of snares, and the fact that they exhibit fantastic durability. Most Dynasonics are chrome over brass, with fewer models being made from 5-ply maple and poplar, providing beefy tones. Both types are collectible, with the wood models being rarer, and therefore, more sought after. The standard size of this snare was 5X14, though other models were produced.
The Rogers Dynasonic Snare Drum was played by the likes of Buddy Rich and Louie Bellson, with newer Rogers’ products being the favored drums of many of today’s well-known rockers. These drums are known for their rich, traditional sound that can be tuned up for crisp pop, or tuned down for a beefier beat.
The price of a quality used Dynasonic usually starts at about $350, and can easily top $1,000. Therefore, it can be tough for some drummers/collectors to get a hold of one. If you do own one, finding replacement hardware can be difficult.
