Rogers came to the United States and started crafting drum heads.
Fiberglass timpani were also manufactured for a time, the model being called Accu-Sonic. The bass drum has a grainy finish on the inside of the drum, like a beige granite-like finish. Said the solid hex shaped Memori-loc tom legs were indicative of pre-'75 Rogers Kits. The cymbal stands and tom-tom holders featured a ball-and-socket tilting mechanism.Even Ludwig drummers like Ringo Starr of The Beatles, Mitch Mitchell of The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin used some Swiv-o-Matic hardware items on their kits.
