HOW MANY PEOPLE HERE OWN A SET ?? PICTURES ??
Used to. Just a Dyna now.
why does the dyna have black felts under lugs ?? u added them ?? and that is a REAL wildwood dyna sonic didnt think any were made
Not the greatest pictures but here's my Wildwood set. First picture shows how little fade there is in the veneer. It has two 20" bass drums, three 12" toms, a 16" floor tom and matching Powertone. Also have matching hardware. I need to set it up and take some nicer pictures but you get the idea.... very nice condition and they sound great.
That double bass set has some of the best wildwood coloring I have seen in a while. Nice drums guys.
Back in the day, just before Rogers left Covington for CA, I was offered a job disassembling Wildwood kits they had on hand. They obviously weren’t selling. In return, I would receive my own Wildwood kit. It never materialized. Darn!
Long story short:
I found an undrilled virgin Wildwood snare shell. Used a COB Dyna as a donor drum. I used felts to help cushion the lugs on the wood veneer. Even had Jerry set it up for me as well. As close to factory you are going to get.
wow - I know few drums were covered in pearl finishes - but to actually disaasemble them -man I guees they had big inventory ?? to my knowledge they only made 20'' bass drums ? and 16 floor toms 12;; toms
There's a snare on eBay now....looks nice. Powertone I think......
The double bass drum kit I posted pictures of came to me from a guy in his early 60's. Both his parents worked at the factory, father as a machinist and mother assembling kits. He told me the story about the disassembling and destruction of a load of shells but his parents were able to get this kit and gave it to him for his 16th birthday. He played a little for a couple of years but then went into the military and they stayed in cases from 1970 until 2015 when I got them. I plan on keeping them in this condition as they are an important little piece of Rogers history.
on bass drum is a left handed set up ? if you look at it ? weird
Unlike you guys, all I have is just this one lousy Wildwood drum.
Came in a box with extras.
anyone else ? seem like really small ## of wildwood sets
It is not mine but I know of a almost NOS 20-12-14 set. It has ALOT of blue in it.
STEAMBENT ? they want to sell it------------- or at least take a picture to post so we can see them
The owner is not very active on here but he is on here some. He will post if he wants to.
Steambent.... would that WW kit with a lot of blue be in The Dayton area?
Powertone you are correct! Have you seen it or did i tell you about it?
I saw it years ago. Was just talking about the owner the other day as I haven’t seen him in years.
He still plays out a fair amount.
I had no idea this finish existed. It’s flippin’ gorgeous. Is the color variation on the veneer a staining process or the natural appearance of the wood species?
