Re: Eames drum shells

My only experience is a 10 x 14 Snare at a drum shop I fill in at occasionally. I think it was a converted tom. Sounded absolutely killer.

WTB - Slingerland Tension Rod

Hi Guys,

This is a long shot but I've got a bent tension rod on an old Slingerland Legion Heir marching snare drum. The drum is 10 x 14 so the tension rod is about 10 3/8" long. I don't have...

Re: This is the Display Your Marching Snare Thread

Beautiful drum Heraldo. I have been wondering about these drums. Do they hold a tight enough tuning?

Re: This is the Display Your Marching Snare Thread

I love all the rope tension drums. Here's my modest entry: mid-60's Slingerland Super Tension parade drum 12 x 15. Nothing fancy but sounds fantastic to me.

60's Slingerland Marching Snare

Hi Guys,

I just picked up this mid-60's Slingerland "Super Tension" parade snare. It's in showroom condition.

Re: Ludwig Super Classic Snare - PINK OYSTER - Nickel Hardware

I love the pink oyster wrap. A snare with that wrap is on my wish list. I think it'll look cool with my Vintage Black Oyster kit.

Re: Dents

Dents

So my new (1920's) Universal snare has dents in the shell. One at the strainer and one at the butt. No huge surprise. Seems like these old metal drums all have these dents.

I suspect that the...

That's great. I'm not up there much but I stopped in there once about 10 years ago and spoke with Joe for a while. Nice guy. Sorry to hear he passed.
