Re: Buddy Rich Slingerlands thread UPDATE

OK. I don't subscribe to the anything goes, chaos on the factory floor school of thought. It is just a bit to easy. Of course there are exceptions to the rule but mostly there was a rule and that...

Re: Buddy Rich Slingerlands thread UPDATE

Thank You Tommy P. Could you comment on the 9 x 13 tom? The OP claimed it has no vent hole or badge. Is that a known "Buddy" request?

Re: Today's CL score!

No one questioned the authenticity of the drums, my apologies if it was interpreted that way. I was simply pointing out some unexpected/uncommon details that appear to be original to this particular...

Re: Today's CL score!

Very good, serial and date align nicely. A couple small observations on the BD: The 2-bolt rail consolette would not be expected in late '64 (would typically be the 4-bolt). The standard position...

Re: Today's CL score!

Nice find. Would you be willing to share the serial number? Should be 5-digit, first two numbers will suffice (e.g. 52xxx).

Re: 1968 Buddy Rich Played Slingerlands

Slingerland began using serial numbers in October 1962 and contrary to the beliefs of some they are not sporadic or random at all. And just for the sake of clarity; in your first post you mention...

Those appear to be covering the factory locations for the L-arm cymbal holders. The cymbal holders have been moved post factory to different locations. One of the re-located holders looks to shows...

Re: 1968 Buddy Rich Played Slingerlands

Badges are '62-'70 era. Serial 198xxx would be expected to be later '68 with earlier '69 possible. The visible hardware appears consistent with late 60's. Outwardly it appears to be a well used...

Re: Identification...Ludwig Thermogloss Over Natural Mahogany?

Addressing this issue can be quite complicated and would require a thread all to itself. Overall the Vintage Drum Guide is a wonderful resource but the info is not all 100% correct. It is a good...

Re: My first vintage set

Nice find. I'm feeling '64-'65 for that kit. I think you'll find some date stamps! Let us know and good luck with the shipping.

Re: Leedy Snare Identification

+1 with V-more, although I believe it is a mid to late 60's Frank Capp model which looks to be the same drum as the Ray Mosca model just renamed.

Re: Opinions: Hawthorne Drum Shop

+1 with jda (yikes!). Simple supply and demand. There is a demand of some sort for vintage MIJ drums and the supply is finite. Sellers will always try to find the ceiling (right Hobbs?).

Re: 1939-41 SLINGERLAND 7 x 14 SILVER SPARKLE HOLLYWOOD ACE MODEL RADIO KING

Very nice. Wouldn't the tin strap snare mechanism and wartime hiatus of that strainer further narrow the dating of this one to '40-'41?
