Re: 1954 Slingerland Radio King Snare Drum

Badge is '50 - '53.
Lugs and hoops are '55 or later.
Strainer is '56 or later.
Lug fasteners are '57 or later.
The large spread of years would seem to eliminate the possibility of a...

Re: 1954 Slingerland Radio King Snare Drum

Dan, how did you arrive at a 1954 date? Lugs and hoops are post '54 and lug fasteners are late 50's/early 60's.

Re: Slingerland Artist Single Ply Maple Blue Ripple 14x5.5 snare

Nice. Serial 46xxx puts this one squarely into '64.

Re: BOP Ludwig Jazz Fest serial number

Per Rick Gier's Ludwig serial dating guide 80xxx would be expected for approx. later '64. This serial is also in the range where many drums are reported to lack date stamps.

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...

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:

'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.

+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.
