What We Think

Few vintage drums have earned the esteem and respect quite like the wood Dyna-Sonic. Its build and sound were years ahead of its time, but alas the production only lasted a couple of years and rumored to 3000 drums in total. Fast forward a few decades and we now have an improved version of the iconic drum available in 5.5" and 6.5" shell depths.

Staying true to the original design, the heart of the drum is a maple and poplar shell with reinforcing rings designed to give you a full-bodied note. Where the Dyna-sonic stood out was the free floating rail system which allowed the snare wires to float on the head as opposed to being stretched and pressed against the head. The increased sensitivity is realized from the wet and loose tensions all the way to the dry and tight settings.

Some other familiar pieces are the Clock-face strainer and butt plate as well as the script badge that were staples in the golden era of Rogers. Currently, the Dyna-sonic is offered with Bread & Butter or Beavertail lugs for players who would like to match these drums to an existing set.

Manufacturer's Description from Rogers

This is the drum that “couldn’t be built”. This is the drum that solved a problem that “couldn’t be solved”. Before Dyna-Sonic, you tightened the snares, and the snares choked the head.  Dyna-Sonic changes all that.  Because your snares ride on an exclusive floating snare frame.  They ride with the snare head, never dampen it.  There’s no choking.  There’s never and snare slap.

With a traditional snare drum, choking results from snare wires being pulled up too tight from the strainer knob when trying to dial out snare vibration and dry up or “crisp” up the sound.  With the Dyna-Sonic snare frame, the concept is to allow the snare tension to be controlled on the frame itself, while the strainer knob simply brings the frame up to just “kiss” the bottom head. This results is superior sensitivity over the entire head and allows for all snare adjustment, from “dry” to “loose”, to be controlled from the frame itself.
Roger’s product designer, Joe Thompson said it best in his Jan 16,1962patent application for the Dyna-Sonic snare rail system: “The goal of this invention is to provide a drum with ‘floating snares’, which can be tensioned without putting pressure on the head, on a drum with no snare beds.”
The Dyna-Sonic snare frame is that same exclusive floating snare frame design. Made of cast steel, the frame comes complete with snare wire mounted. The single tension screw located at the end of the frame, gives one-point uniformed tensioning with simple hand adjustment. Set it, and it remains in the desired position.
