HAYMAN / ROGERS HYBRID KIT

Behind the kit 1988 - Present

UNUSUAL & QUITE RARE POST-PRODUCTION HAYMAN DRUMS 

This kit was built by the late great Lou Dias.

He was one of the godfathers of the British Vintage drum scene he had his Supreme Drums shop in the late 70s on Stratford High Road, London, UK. He bought up a lot of Hayman stock when the firm folded and built complete kits using Hayman drums and Rogers hardware. This was a way to make as many Hayman Kits out of the of the remaining stock.

My first drum kit.
I spent many happy hours behind this kit teaching myself how to play. This kit still lives in my studio as a reminder to where it all began. Currently a restoration project to have all original Hayman lugs, hardware and parts. An ongoing project due to the hard to come by original Hayman parts.
