Re: Slingerland Trade

The Slingerlands are post '74. How far post? 3-ply or 5-ply? Born together? Quality drums no doubt. Strictly in terms of dollars and cents the Ludwigs would probably fetch a better price on any...

Re: Looking for info on a Slingerland 2 to 1 snare

Not uncommon for drum models, wraps etc. to be offered before being cataloged.

Re: Slingerland 9x12 Tom Yellow (Gold) Satin Flame

Is there a bass drum? What is the size of the floor tom? Not a born together set as the first tom listed is a '70-'72.

Re: Back In The Vintage Game... Slingy Style

rculberson, your snare is a 1962 Radio King Model. As you know the badge on yours was only used '61 & '62. '61 used the old dual pad muffler, '62 was the first year for the single pad J-hook. ...

Re: Mystery bass drum-need help identifying

The vertical interior wood grain should preclude this from being a Slingerland.

Re: Back In The Vintage Game... Slingy Style

[QUOTE=rculberson;440497]Yeah, it's a Radio King. Slingerland just wasn't calling them Radio Kings in that particular time frame. The Super Krupa snares had the clam shell throw while the Krupa...

Throw off on the snare is the 3-pointer, and it also has the extenders on both sides. I did have a minor issue with the wires loosening up over the course of 3 or 4...

Re: Radio King white paint interior?

Slightly more scarce seems a fair statement although 3-plies show up fairly regularly and the scarcity does not translate to more value. The solid shell is still the king.

Re: Back In The Vintage Game... Slingy Style

Great looking kit in desirable sizes. '62 was the last full year for mahogany interiors. Which strainer does the snare have?

Re: 1940 Slingerland Radio Kings

Very good. Did you whiten the WMP or is it a rewrap?

Re: Radio King white paint interior?

'64-'82 for yours DRUMR69. Here is a link: http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/drcjw/article_5_strainers_3point-12.html
Could be W&A made these for Slingerland or W&A bought these from Slingerland.

Re: Radio King white paint interior?

'46-'48 by the badge. Strainer appears to be a collection of parts but is predominately post '50. Twisted throw lever is late 50's.

Re: Radio King white paint interior?

Adding to Marks statement; natural maple interior if solid shell, natural mahogany interior if 3-ply shell. Paint is not original (may be hiding something). I also don't believe the cloud badge era...

Re: Slingerland drum ID needed .

It would not be wise to bid based on that one picture alone. Almost no information other than it is a drum.

Re: 20"x11 1/2" kick drum. Premier?

funkypoodle has a keen eye. The snare is NOT Slingerland for the reasons he mentioned and more.
