The Rogers Book
(Book). In this book, author Rob Cook gives the complete history of the Rogers Drum Company, whose drums, in the words of Not-So-Modern Drummer editor John Aldridge, were "the Cadillac of the 1960s...(whose) innovations in hardware design have been copied by almost every drum manufacturer in existence." The Rogers Book covers the company's east coast beginnings, the Covington, OH era, English Rogers, the CBS era, and much more. It includes a list of Rogers endorsees, a comprehensive guide for dating equipment, a color section showing old catalogs and drum colors, the parts listings from all Rogers catalogs, a list of current resources, and lots of photographs throughout. This is a must-have for all drum enthusiasts!
