SKU: 72525992 Categories: , ,


Vintage 1968 Rogers 16×16 floor tom in original black onyx wrap. Dayton paper tag inside. Serial number 99468. Speckled grey interior with hex head mounting screws on the hardware. The drum is 100% original except for two tension rods and a repair at the wrap seam. It still has the factory Rogers heads with only light wear on them. The wrap has had some shrinking over the years, There are some small splits at the badge and around most lug holes, but they’re covered by the lugs (see pictures). There is also a little bubble and some small splits at the air vent grommet. The wrap seam had separated and pulled back. We re-glued the seam to the shell and then salvaged a strip of original wrap from the bass drum (rest of the wrap in tatters sadly) and glued it at the seam to cover the damaged spot (see pictures). The chrome hardware is in great shape with only minor pitting and scratches from being stored in a fiber case. The internal muffler works properly. All of the floor tom legs have the original rubber feet. Overall it’s a nice player’s drum (because of the wrap). It would be an excellent re-wrap candidate, but the original black onyx is just so pretty we couldn’t bring ourselves to do it. More pictures and info available.

Due to the nature of used and vintage drum gear, all listings are sold “as-is.” We try our best to take detailed pictures and write accurate descriptions. Our goal is to capture the overall condition of each item. Minor details may be missed, but we are happy to take additional pictures upon request. Also, we cannot guarantee finishes will be a close or perfect match to your drum(s).
