Re: Slingerland Drum research, help!

Congratulations for taking the plunge. This drum set and the go-withs look to be an ideal kick off point for your soon to be civilian life.

Re: Slingerland Drum research, help!

If those cymbals are either Avedis Zildjian top line or K Zildjian cymbals, and the $1,500 price includes all of the hardware, that price would be good if it included shipping it to you.

Do you really want to start up with political crap, vintagemore2000? This is not the place for it.

Re: My wmp

I don't know if this drum set was another one that never left the original owner's hermetically sealed, non smoking, pet free, vegan home before I acquired it. But, it sure looks like that could be...

Re: My wmp

Gee golly gosh. The drums were from 1964, and not even Oyster Black Pearl or listed as a Ringo kit. Maybe, if the drum throne was included, and Buddy Rich had passed gas on it, I could understand the...

Re: NYT Zildjian Article ...

I have about two dozen cymbals. Every one of them is an Avedas Zildjian. I am still using the A Zildjians that I bought as new cymbals in the years spanning 1955 through 1975. I have also acquired...

Re: Rogers Swivomatic pedal expert help?

Running changes are not uncommon for a lot of products. For most of those changes, there is little or no need to mention them in the original product information pages that came with the items....

Re: Uncatalogued purple diamond pearl Rogers cozy cole

Good luck finding a matching tom. I would suggest that you find orphan rack and floor toms that you can re-wrap. Once you clean up the two rums you now have, take good photos of the wrap at distances...

Re: Offset Shield-Shaped Lugs on mystery snare

It looks to me that it is Ernie the generic Asian import snare drum with some "dare to be different" lugs.

Re: Scored these Ludwig’s on a local BST site.

If you're going to sell just the drums without the stands, what difference does it make if you know what pieces of hardware came with the drums? The actual drum sizes and configurations in both of...

Re: Leedy drum (1930's)

If you're making a Levon Helm-type drum set, that drum could work as a small tom.

Re: Percent of unmodified classic American kits left?

Five of the six vintage drum sets that I currently own have some type of modification ranging from an added cymbal mount to a rewrap. My 1963 Leedy Shelly Manne set came to me with original heads as...

Re: Percent of unmodified classic American kits left?

I spent 30 years as a manufacturer's rep in the music business. The 27 years representing a major guitar and amp manufacturer taught me that damn few electric guitars and basses live to be a couple...

Re: Thoughts on Gretsch 'rock and roll' round badge kit

I had this same dual tom holder on my Walberg & Auge set in Ice Blue Metallic. I'm pretty certain that W&A made the piece of hardware for Gretsch. It was very sturdy, and placed the two toms wherever...

Re: Older guys

We decided to sell our large house in 2013, and downsize our retirement life into a cozy Craftsman cottage that would be built for us. Part of the downsizing was a much easier decision than I thought...

Re: New Drum Day! 50's Slingerland Radio King (floor tom recommendations needed)

The drum you are hunting for will always be available when you're not looking for it. My hunch is that one or more Slingerland floor tom in the desired color will appear on eBay or some other selling...

Re: Old Man Rant: Something I hope never happens to drums.

There must be at least ten times as many guitar players as there are drummers who buy musical gear. There are herd mentality divisions for guitar people and for drum people. The guitar people who...

Re: Rogers kit barn find ANY/ALL info appreciated!

Whatever they turn out to be, you most likely have much more than $100 in salvageable parts if the drums turn out to be total crap not worthy of rehabilitation. But, amosguy's suggestions are right...

If you're talking about a cymbal holder rod that slides up and down through a small fitting in the middle of the top of the bass drum, what's not original about that? This was customary on virtually...

Re: Old Man Rant: Something I hope never happens to drums.

Complete drum sets that look like what mchair303 describes are the kind that we vintage collectors dream of finding for $100-$200 in a barn or a garage. Then, we spiff 'em up so that they gleam. And,...
