Hi everybody
My name is Scott and I am the drummer in the Upstate NY based band "Sweet Revenge". We play mostly local bars and parties playing rock, some old, mostly new. Check us out on the web or on myspace. We cover a lot of Canadian Rock seeing our close proximity to Canada. It goes over pretty well. I have only had 4 drum sets in my 30 years of drumming. They are:
60's Rogers 4 piece set in blue sparkle Wish I still had this set.
80's Maxwin by Pearl Crappy set but they were new, I still have the snare somewhere.
80's Yamaha Power V made by Premier Ok drums but I abused them
'02 Noble & Cooley CD Maples in Champagne Sparkle - Ohh Yea
This Is where I need help from you! My set consists of 22" bass 12" and 14" toms. The people at Noble and Cooley say that when it was originally sold to Indoor Storm in North Carolina it had a10" and 16" toms with it. It bought it on ebay from a type of pawn shop in Toledo Ohio. If anyone can help me locate these two drums it would be greatly appreciated. I may even throw out a finders fee for the successful purchase of these 2 toms. If anyone can help me, either respond to this thread or contact me through this site. I can give you what other details I know. Thanks

Welcome to the forum smmjbarney,

What happens to you with your old Rodgers kit is the same that happens to me with my Pearl set. Should have kept it.
I also own a Yamaha Power V (I think it's made by Premier) as it reads Made in England.

Hope to see you around.

Re: hey


I see this was an older post. However, I'm considering psringing for my first 'new' drum kit in 20 years and can get a Noble and Cooley at a good price. It's a 4 pc, no snare, I have an old Brady I love. The guy who is selling has about five other expensive sets. He states he never plays the kit out at gigs becuase it's 'too nice'.
What do you like about your Noble's, I assume you play them! :>)

Thanks for any advise.

Re: hey

Don't pass them up. You will regret it. They have an amazing sound. I mic my bass drum with an AKG d112 mic and the first time I thumped it all the bass player in my band could do was grin. I can get a beautiful low tone out of my 14" floor tom also. As far as being "to nice" to gig with, I purchased mine used. They were previously scratched up. Cosmetically I would give my set a 5 out of 10. Soundwise they get an 12. If you get a set of cases to transport them in and take good care of them you shouldn't have a problem. They were built to be played, right? That's my opinion. Oh yea, I have not been officially told this by anyone at N&C yet but I have heard that if your drums do get scratched up they will refinish them again for a nominal fee. If they were to look at mine they might change their policy.
Hope this helps make your choice easier.

Re: hey

I had a Noble and Cooley wooden snare (7.5x14) with cast hoops in a salmon color finish--sounds ugly but made the drum an accent to my midnight blue kit. I was able to get it off the clearance rack at Guitar Center as the purchaser of the rest of the kit didn't want the snare. I got it for $200....

Let me tell you, that was the best snare I've ever owned. It sounded FAT and was a breeze to tune. I got more compliments on the sound of that snare than on any other part of my kit, (a Premier). The throw-off is bullet proof--the most basic design, made of solid brass it stayed put--I wish all companies used the same design--eliminating a lever and moving parts which fail over time...

Anyway--the other Nobles I've played and heard all sounded phenomenal. I've never been able to afford a complete set--but would jump at the opportunity.

Re: hey

JUst signed up and wanted to say hello.

I am a hard rock drummer with a decent amount of formal training and live in SO New Hampshire.

Currently playing TAMA Artstar Cordia 24, 24, 16, 14, 13, 12.

Use mainly Zildjian A's, but also a few PAiste and Sabians.

I own a lot of snares and my fave is my Pearl masters, great drum.

I also dabble in drum restoration and drum building.
