Re: How do you remove rust from wraps?

"Scrubbing Bubbles"? White vinegar and a toothbrush? Worth a try and will not damage wrap.

Re: Slingerland Chrome Snare trying to Identify

Mark (idrum4fun) has correctly identified your drum as a "Gene Krupa Sound King" model. He is a bit off on the year however. Serials 6052 (yours) and 5059 (Mark's) are very late '62 or early '63. ...

Here are two versions of Black Sparkle (click on pictures to enlarge). http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/drcjw/article_4_finishes15.htm# The first version is most likely.

Re: Slingerland 16x16 Pink sparkle floor tom

Very good, I didn't think it was an 18" or 20" as stated in the add. Congrats.

Re: Slingerland 16x16 Pink sparkle floor tom

I was also surprised to see Sparkling Pink available that late. The Dr. called it too. http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/drcjw/article_4_finishes14.htm

Re: Slingerland 16x16 Pink sparkle floor tom

'Interesting' was not the first word that came to mind the first time I encountered a "buyer's premium". (LOL)

Re: Slingerland 16x16 Pink sparkle floor tom

Essentially the buyer pays an additional 18% of the final bid price. For example, if final bid is $100.00 then buyer actually pays $118.00.

Re: Slingerland 16x16 Pink sparkle floor tom

Don't forget the 18% buyer's premium. Serial number suggests 1968.

Re: any idea what this finish is called Pearl drums

Great wrap. Reminiscent of Camco's 3D Moire.

Re: Slingerland Set-o-Matic receiver placement

The placement of the set-o-matic on the WMP bass drum does not look out of line for a late 60's drum (black/brass badge). In the 70's the location moved more toward the center of the bass. With the...

Re: Shelly Manne snares

Tommyp, that's a stellar looking drum. May I ask how you narrowed the date to 1963?

Re: Shelly Manne snares

I'm with Mark (and thin shell), it is a nice drum. Who doesn't like the Leedy lugs and red sparkle wrap? Hopefully Jay_M is okay with drum minutiae talk.

I concur with thin shell on the model identification. Adding to his comments, that particular badge is said to have been used from '58-'61 by Slingerland historian Dr. Wenk. Badge placement to the...

Re: Shelly Manne snares

Jay_M, how did you arrive at a '65 date for your drum? I ask because the badge on your drum is usually associated with an earlier date.
