FDP Forum / I'd Hit It! - Drums and Percussion / I built a snare drum

I wanted a maple snare to match the vintage Rogers kit. Buying a vintage Rogers maple snare was not in the cards financially so I called up Precision Drum and ordered all the parts and threw one together. The shell is 14" x 6 1/2" 8 ply maple, I used torquiose glass glitter wrap, a Trick throw off, 10 tubular lugs and modern rims and tention rods. I added a vintage Rogers script logo. I'm not trying to fool anyone with those tubular lugs. I just liked the look of the logo on it. The project cost less than 1/4 of what a vintage maple Dynasonic, Powertone or Superten would have cost and you don't rewrap a $2K drum to match.

Other projects in the works as I already have the vintage Rogers shells and lugs are a 9 x 13 & 10 x 14 rack, a 14 x 14 and 16 x 18 floor and a 14 x 24 kick. The kit will grow and be much more versatile with the added drums. I'd like to have another 14 x 20 kick to run a double bass kit eventually as well.

Below is a link to one of the snare pics in my profile.
