  • The Drum Kit - Vintage Disco Kit

    thedrumkit small

    The vintage Disco kit used a 70s Rogers Big R Kit which was tuned for the perfect disco sound. It comprises a 24" x 14" Bass Drum, a Sonor Sonorlite 14” x 6.5" and Sonor Maple 14" x 7" Snare Drum,  a huge 18" x 16" Floor Tom, and two Rack Toms, a 14" x 10" and a 13” x 8”. The cymbals used were 15" HHX X-Celerator Hi-Hats, a 17" Zildjian K Dark, an 18" Sabian HH extra thin Crash and a 20" Sabian Artisan Ride. Percussion for this kit includes cowbells, tambourine and cabassa. We have also included some short and long claps from an original Claptrap. Everything you need for a 70s disco kit.

    An Irish immigrant from Dublin named Joseph Rogers founded the Rogers Drum Company in 1849. Musicians from the Dixieland movement first embraced their drums and then later were used by swing drummers in the 40’s and 50’s and later by the classic rock musicians of the 60’s and 70’s. The drums used a 5-ply Maple wood construction that gave them their mid-range tonality. The drums respond well to tuning which means they work equally well as a Jazz, Funk, Rock or in this case, disco kit. This example was used in the Ironworks Studio, Brighton and consists of factory issue sizes.

    Heads used on the drums were A Remo Ebony Powestroke Bass on the Kick, a Remo coated controlled Sound on the snares and Evans Hydraulics on the toms.
