Rogers Drums

Yamaha recently acquired the intellectual property rights to Rogers Drums and plans to release new product from the hallowed brand. Founded in 1849 and considered a bastion of manufacturing excellence and innovation (especially for the Dyna-Sonic snare drum), Rogers was endorsed by Buddy Rich, Louie Bellson and Ed Shaughnessy. Yamaha plans to make Rogers products available to its dealers nationwide. rogersdrums.com
