The sizes are 20"x14", 13"x9", 12"x8", 16"x16" and 14"x5" wood snare. The ‘wrong way round’ toms were a DC trademark and Alan argues that Dave must have asked B&H specifically to position the two Swiv-O-Matic tom mounts to accommodate this set-up.

“Rogers drums were made under licence in the UK between 1961 and 1967 by B&H. Promotional material presented them as Rogers drums made in the UK, the term ‘English Rogers’ was coined later. The DC5’s popularity inspired Rogers USA in 1967 to produce the ‘Dave Clark Londoner’ set.”
