I did use the term "clone " loosely, not intending to denigrate either drum in any way. One is complete (with snare frame and original snares), the other came without the snare frame, and had those ubiquitous generic "duplex" snares that numerous other drum manufacturers use. The other one sounds like lots of other brass drums with regular snares, which is to say, good. The complete one has what I guess is the Dyna Sonic sound, which is crisp, kind of dry, and you can still hear the "doot " sound of the shell, like when the snares are off.

Maybe you Rogers lovers know that there is a remake of the iconic Dyna.sonic snare drum. I don't own a single Rogers snare, but as the owner of a '69 Holiday set, I'm still excited to see what the future holds for this company...whether my set drops in value or not.
And will be distributed by Maxwell Drum Shop in New York. I don't get the bitterness toward these new Rogers drums.
The very shallow snare beds on the Dyna makes it fussy about what type of snares you can use, but it is possible, despite what has been said in the past. Technically these wouldn't be clones since someone does own the Rogers trademark and they are the ones making the drums (I think it's Dixon) for Steve Maxwell.
