  • The Drum Kit - Roger Big R Dub Kit

    rogers drumkit

    The Rogers “Big R” Dub kit is a classic Reggae sounding kit with a white finish. It comprises a 24" x 14" Bass Drum, a Ludwig Black Magic 14” x 6.5" Snare Drum, a Ludwig Acrolite 14” x 5” 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" Zildjian A Sweet Hi-Hats and a 17" A Custom Crash. Percussion for this kit includes a 14” Timbale drum and a set of Bongos. Mike has also recorded some Electronic Percussion using a Boss PC-2 Percussion Synthesizer and a Tama Techstar TS-204.

    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, Reggae kit. This example is available in Miloco's Ironworks Studio, Brighton and consists of factory issue sizes and is fitted with Pre International Remo Coated Ambassador heads. To get a Dub Reggae drum sound first you must start with a Dub Reggae kit - and here it is.
