EP 22 - The History of Rogers Drums with Po Shy and Jeff Burke

Updated: Sep 21, 2019



Starting in 1849 as a maker of drumheads in Ireland, Rogers Drums has had a long life that is full of innovations such as the Dyna-Sonic snare, Swiv-O-Matic hardware, and countless iconic drum sets. Jeff and Po take us through the various eras of Rogers history in great detail, and we also learn about the recent resurgence of the iconic brand.

Po Shy covers the first half of Rogers Drums that includes the origins in Dublin, followed by time in New York/New Jersey, and through the iconic Ohio days of production. Then, Jeff Burke teaches us about the Fullerton, California era when CBS purchased Rogers and the many owners and that followed.
