Snare of the day

Rogers Super Ten

Featured snare drum today is this lovely Rogers Super Ten

Rogers Super Ten 6.5 snare drum available at Nick Hopkin Drums www.nickhopkindrums.com

This drum is fairly rare to come across in the UK, a 14 x 6.5″ chrome over steel shell with all original hardware. If you’re looking for that classic American Rock low tuned thud, then this drum could be your answer. The internal dampener/muffler is nice, just touching the head slightly reduces the need for gels on the batter head.

Tune it up mid-high and you get great stick response and a lovely crack!

Many seek the Ludwig 402 as their go to 6.5″ snare drum, and overlook other worthy contenders such as this. More photos and info about this drum on the website.

Snare of the day

Rogers Super Ten

OK, so we had a stack of Rogers drums land at the shop on Monday, so today’s featured snare drum is a Rogers Super Ten.

The Super Ten snare drum was manufactured between 1973 and 1983 and offered as a chrome over steel shell in depths of 5″ and 6.5″. ┬áThis particular drum is a 14 x 6.5″ in great condition. Original hardware throughout; 10 lugs, Rogers hoops, tone control muffler, clock face snare strainer. Fitted with Remo heads and 42 strand snare wires, this snare tunes up nicely and has great response tuned higher and a big, fat warm sound tuned low.

A great sounding drum, a nice alternative to the popular Ludwig 402. More information on our website where we offer Worldwide shipping on all products.
