This is a cool drum. This is a Rogers 60s era 5x14 white marine pearl Holiday model snare drum. B&B lugs with the typical stress cracks but all function just fine. (And, the new Rogers repro lugs fit this same hole pattern). The cool part is that this drum has a special plate on it saying that it was made specially for Louie Bellson. Louie was a Rogers artist for many years in the 60s, and his first sets were pre-1964 so they had the B&B lugs. I have sold three os Louie's personal sets, but not one of the earlier ones with B&B lugs.  Louie used both the 8 lug Holiday model as well as the wood Dynasonic on his early Rogers kits. The Dynasonic didn’t debut until circa 1961, so any Rogers snare of Louie’s prior to that time would have been an 8 lug Holiday model, same as this drum. Once Rogers switched over to the beaver tail lugs circa 1964, Louie then used the wood Dyna and occasionally the brass Dyna almost exclusively.
I want to be very clear in that I do not have any specific provenance that ties this back to Louie directly.  But, I’m not sure why anyone would add this name plate if it wasn’t legit. In any case, it is a cool drum and if in fact it did belong to Louie, it’s extra cool!
