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

While it is true that "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" let's not forget the business practices employed by these stencil companies; to make money selling an inferior product that 'looked...

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'.

MntnMan62, Your kit sounds fantastic, any chance you could post some pictures? We'd love to see it. Even more reason to hold out for a nice original WMP drum. It is also generally accepted that...

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

Josh, I take zero credit for knowing this, it is 100% Dr. Wenk. It is also mentioned in Rob Cook's Slingerland book. Here is an old thread where Dr. Wenk mentions the use of Jasper shells. Your...

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.

Yes, they do exist. Both of your examples are pre '63 drums.

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.

Re: Help Identify my 2 Slingerland Snares

Hello Ken, how about a serial number for the Niles drum? The tone control is not original.

Re: Is this Snare Black Nickel Plated or Black Lacquer Spray

I'm going with black lacquer also. A common finish at the time.
