Over the years according to photos and film footage, Roger increasingly disappeared behind his stage apparatus. What WAS all of that? As a person who knows nothing about musical instruments, why so many cymbals? They all look the same to me. Do they come in different keys/tones? And how many drums were up there? I would imagine they all have their own resonance. I don't know my music groups, but did Roger have more than most? His favorite brands?


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

"Why so many cymbals?"

Simple really. Different cymbals produce different sounds depending on what they are made from and what size they are.

Roger's drum-sets are far from excessive, compared to what many other rock-drummers have used to pile up on stage during the last decades.

Hello. I play drums.

As somebody wrote, each part of the kit produce a different sound.

In Roger's kit, he used to have like 5 o 6 toms, in 12", 13", 14" 16" and 18" sizes, plus a bass drum (24"), a snare (14"), a couple electronic pads (in the 80's) and rototoms.

Speaking of cymbals, his basic kit had the HiHats, a few crashes, a ride, a pair of huge chinas and some bells.

His drumkit is so massive because it's a penis extension.

I own a drumkit. It's microscopic.
