Re: Slingerland Concert King

No. Capri pearl came first and was followed by Mardi Gras.

Capri Pearl shows up in the '59 and '60 catalogs. I don't have access to a '58 or '61 catalog. I believe Capri was cataloged in '58...

Re: Slingerland Concert King

allandwf, what date stamp range do your 'capri' drums have? I've seen '58 stamped 'capri' drums. Mark's '64 example is certainly interesting.

Re: What year are these Slingerland drums?

leedybdp, the serial reset in early/mid 1970 and the three different badge types used in 1970 help narrow down your drums nicely. Per Dr. CJ Wenk, Black/brass badges of the 60's continued in use...

Re: What year are these Slingerland drums?

We have discussed this before. The black/silver badges preclude these drums from being any earlier than 1970. Per Dr. CJ Wenk that badge was used from '70 - '72. Serials 19xxx would be expected...

Re: BR "flat-base" cymbal stand on eBay

Mark, your stencil 'Radio King' is very cool and a piece of history in its own right.

Re: BR "flat-base" cymbal stand on eBay

Nice work Mark. Great details. A lot of the MIJ kits were made to deceive and on quick glance they can.

Re: BR "flat-base" cymbal stand on eBay

skins, the tilter is NOT Slingerland. Look at yours then look at the one in the add. That alone refutes his claim of 'all original'.

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

Mark, Slingerland floor tom legs and mounts per Dr. CJ Wenk:

'58-'65= straight legs with push buttons
'66-early '68= straight legs with 'T' wing screw
early '68-up=angled legs with 'T' wing...

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

Angled legs are correct for a 70's floor tom. Your offer for that floor tom is more than fair. You are likely to be 'upside down' on that tom once you replace the non-original/bad parts and do a...

Re: Humble Collection of Old A, Italian, and misc.

If the price marking is original it may be a clue to the year of the cymbal. Price in '61 catalog is $38.00. Price in '63 & '64 catalogs is $42.00. Price in '65 & '67 catalogs is $46.00.

Re: Need Opinions on Slingerland Snare

Tough call, I don't see the classic Slingerland thin, thick, thin 3-ply layup. This may be a 2-ply shell. Per Slingerland historian Dr CJ Wenk the lighter 2-ply shell was commonly used on...

Re: Need Opinions on Slingerland Snare

That particular cloud badge was used primarily on marching and 'juvenile' drums. Is that a 3-ply shell?

Re: Slingerland snare drum on eBay!

Yes allandwf, there have been a few reports of date stamps on late 50's solid shells. However, the 'no date stamp on solid shells' rule holds up very well for the 60's.

Re: Slingerland Concert King

I don't see why not as the catalogs state "choice of pearls" as an option for the Concert King during the years Capri was available.

Re: Can anyone identify this strainer?

+1 with thin shell. Slingerland used that three hole slider for more than three decades.

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

Josh, according to Slingerland historian Dr. CJ Wenk the first Cut-a-ways in '77 were made with multi ply Jasper shells. Looks like your 13" is one of those.

Nice Artist model from '65. Almost certainly a 3-ply.

Re: What are the rarest Slingerland wraps/finishes from th 60's-70's?

Thank you Dave, what a great kit. Any chance you still have the original sales receipt? Lack of raised lettering on the snare badge solidifies the expected '73 date for this drum. A clear maple...

Re: Help Identify my 2 Slingerland Snares

202xxx is ~'68 - '69. A 3-ply shell would be expected. Remove a lug or the tone control as other have suggested for a positive ID.
