Re: 1958 Slingerland Gene Krupa Deluxe

I've always thought of Oyster Pink as being a more rare and sought after finish than capri pearl, & jazz sizes with a 14" floor tom command a higher dollar with a larger pool of collectors interested...

Re: 1958 Slingerland Gene Krupa Deluxe

Re: Oaklawn Camco Floor Tom Puzzle

The Ludwig mounts on your floor tom were the only mounts to have ever been on that kit. Camco's could be ordered with no floor tom, bass drum or tom brackets so one could install the brackets of...

Re: Merry Christmas Baby!

Very nice, congrats! One theory on this set is that someone or some store in the 60's had a 12" & 14" from a Slingerland "Jet Set" that had been separated from the bass drum at some point & then...

Re: Help ID Ludwig Black Oyster Pearl

Very nice drum, but considering it has at least three differences from a Ringo snare (1.) different size, 2.) different model/number of lugs 3.) different tone control placement) I would say it...

Re: What's Mickey(RIP) playing here?

Re: 15x12 slingerland marcher..is it a slingy shell???

Definitely not Masonite. Definitely a real 3 ply Slingerland from the 50's displaying all correct 50's hallmarks. Interior is beautiful mahogany & looks like the interior of some of my nicer 50's...

Re: Oaklawn Camco price check

I bought a re-wrapped Camco Oaklawn set in those exact sizes a few years ago (re-wrapped in green sparkle). Paid $3400 for them, played them for a year & sold them to fund a recording project. Was...

Re: Camco values

1.) There are Camco offerings in earlier Rogers catalogs. Pages 46, 48, 50 & 54 of the 1962 Rogers "Catalog 62R" for example.

Re: Rogers Red Onyx "Lefty" Bop kit on eBay

I asked some questions on some important (to me) things that I felt were vague in the description & needed verification of before I was willing to bid. The seller responded quickly and confirmed...

Re: Rogers Red Onyx "Lefty" Bop kit on eBay
