Re: MIJ orphan sale coming soon - What are you looking for?

St George Hollywood Floor Tom in faded Silver sparkle (think yellow sparkle)...super long shot but never hurts. Or really any floor tom in the same color with slingy style lugs.

Re: COS Slingerland Sound King

I suppose it could be from the 80's, but the badge # seems to put it somewhere around 1975. Badge # 209321
