Rogers Drums is an American multinational drum manufacturer. It was founded in and originally based in Covington, Ohio. Rogers came to the United States and started crafting drum heads. His son began making drums in the mids at a Farmingdale, New Jersey location. The first Rogers drums were assembled from shells and hardware of other manufacturers, but mounted with Rogers heads. Grossman moved the company to Covington, Ohio, and under his leadership Rogers was propelled to the forefront of American drum making for the next decade and a half.

Design engineer Joe Thompson and marketing guru Ben Strauss were instrumental in Rogers’ success during its golden age from the mids to the late s. The company’s drums were embraced by musicians from the dixieland movement to the classic rockers of the s and s.
