Re: Sling set 70s ID potential buy for Dean

Personally, I think your valuation is a bit high. As much as we'd like to hope otherwise, Slingerland realized prices just aren't there, in comparison to L-R-G et al. If you aren't planning to keep,...

Re: My First Rogers Foray! I Have some questions........

Those 32xxx drums are likely to be three ply Keller, instead if the more well-known 5 ply Keller shells, found on Cleveland drums from about 1964 on.

Can't stress this enough (pardon the pun) - if...

Re: Day late

No, I think that is a snare without its pants.

Re: Day late

Just for posterity, i'm attaching the CL pics that I saved so everyone can see what we were talking about.

The Ludwig lot sold for $1550 p/s and was sold to a party over the phone. The Yamaha lot...

Re: Day late

No worries, and I don't know who got either kit. The executor of the estate was kind enough to text me afterwards and fill in the details, that's why I know what they went for.

Re: Day late

Sure, YRC=Yamaha recording custom. While we're here:
YMCA= Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute, etc.

What's really hillarious is when some of us (you know who you are) use voice to text to save time,...

Re: Day late

Re: WFL Classic snare strainer restoration question

So what is on there now is a Slingerland 3 point?

Unless you're a WFL purist, i'd leave it alone. The damage (ie mod) has already been done, and the mix of brands is now part of its history. At...

Re: Beautiful, or just grandma’s linoleum?

Yes, mine are 750xxx serials, which puts them among the very early b/o badges, 1969. The 13 was added later, has an Oct 70 date stamp, but still incredibly rich depth. So as KO pointed out, the 69/70...

Re: WFL and Ludwig

Hey Dad R,

Not as much mystery here as you might think. After 1955, Ludwig and WFL were indeed 'the same shop', as that's when WFL Sr bought his name rights (as well as his old Ludwig&Ludwig...

Re: Beautiful, or just grandma’s linoleum?

Yes they are mine, my first Hollywood. Always had 13 16 22 Ludwig's up to this point. Nothing beats that 3 ply sound! Although I will be selling them after a while, as I can't keep them all.

Re: Beautiful, or just grandma’s linoleum?

I am sorry guys, but you just can't compare this to Grandma's house. Unless grandma had really good taste and friends at Delmar, Flooring Division.

Re: Tama Rockstar Pro Drums

J!m is spot on. Looks like a good deal, unless you have a mind to flip. Snare will be excellent, although I believe they still offered die casts and roller bearings on these shells, so it may not...

Re: Leedy Snare Identification

60's slingerland hollywood aces in common colors generally run $250 in good shape. Add $50 for the Leedy Factor. Yes it's a fair price.

Re: Opinions: Hawthorne Drum Shop

I've talked to him directly at the Delaware Drum Show the past couple of years. Very polite, engaging, and upfront for all I could assess. I would have no qualms doing business with him. But keep in...

Re: What did I just buy?

well the naturals are definitely Camco, as you can see the cloud badges.

I would think the blue set could be ANY boutique builder. They look nice, hopefully you got a bargain. I like the look!

Those holes are where they hang them from when dipping in the plating process.

Re: Advice on early '70's Vintage Orange Ludwig kit

If you like "projects", as I do, then go for it. But that is not a project price.

That wrap is too far gone to rescue in my opinion. I would pass, especially from a blind buy perspective.
