Rogers – ULTRA RARE 1972 26×14″ Bass Drum Shell, Jet Black – $399.00
Any 26″ Rogers bass drum is a VERY rare drum.
Rogers did not even offer a 26″ bass drum as an option for drum sets. If you wanted anything bigger than a 24″ bass you needed to special order a marching bass and a pair of Swiv-o-Matic spurs. If you knew your Rogers sales rep really well, he might even get them installed for you at the factory, otherwise you were on your own
This Ebony 26×14 bass drum is somewhat of a project. It’s missing all the T’s and claws, both hoops and both heads. A pair of more modern spurs have been mounted to the shell, however if Swiv-0-Matic spurs were re-installed they would cover the extra holes with just about a 1/4 of one hole visible on the outside. The hole is located where you’d need to be lying on your back under the bass to even see it!! There are some scuffs and scratches in the ebony wrapped finish visible in the photos. Never drilled for a tom mount. The photos tell it like it is.
Serial Number: #41181
