Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement

Beautiful kit. Expected serial range is approx. 25xxx - 75xxx. Is that a 24" bass drum?

Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement

Nice Mark. Those are good examples of the tom badge placement in question. What makes you believe the red sparkle kit is from '75? Some details I see suggest earlier 70's although still not early...

Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement

Slingerland historian Dr. CJ Wenk states that this badge placement on toms occurred late '71 to early '72, mostly '72. Despite what is commonly believed, badge placement through the years is not...

Re: Type I,II,III old K s

Very interesting. Do you also agree with Mel's assessment of Istanbul cymbals being an old K equivalent. If so, I realize it was 1985 so does that still hold true? If so which models would be most...

Re: What are the rarest Slingerland wraps/finishes from th 60's-70's?

We'll find out in several days. Note that condition appears a bit rough. Looks like significant yellowing of wrap and plenty of missing parts. All of that will affect price. Still neat early 70's...

Re: What are the rarest Slingerland wraps/finishes from th 60's-70's?

I concur on the 171 tom mount but it would not be expected on what the seller is claiming to be a '69 kit. Should be a Set-O-Matic.

That's a cool kit Mark. Some better pictures would be nice though. What's your take on that tom mount?

Re: '48 Radio King Set Possibly Coming My Way

Just for clarity the SlingerLeedy drum pictured is a '58-'61 and has the Black Diamond Pearl wrap used from '56-'72 (some claim the nicest BDP ever produced). The BDP wrap of DrumBob's '48 Radio...

Re: Ludwig Keystone badge identification

Re-issue. Note the "Made in USA" at bottom. Originals are "Chicago, U.S.A.".

Re: Help! Is this a Ludwig Coliseum?

D-Rum, that drum looks to have the BO3 badge, used late 70's to approx. '82 (per R. Gier's dating guide). Makes sense.

Re: Slingerland repro badge fail

Mark (BosLover) is correct. That style Slingerland script on the supposed 60's repro was actually used on Niles badges from '70-1/2 to '86 (never on a 60's badge). There are other issues also but...

Re: New Christmas Gift Set Incoming

I concur DrumBob. Very nicely clustered serials and what can be seen makes sense. No earlier than mid '74 with the chrome inlay bass hoops (per Slingerland historian Dr. CJ Wenk). The large solid...

Re: New Christmas Gift Set Incoming

Looking good. Would you care to share some serial numbers? I'm seeing a few details that suggest mid/late 70's. Numbers at or over 150xxx would be expected.
