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

Wonderful pics and info, thanks.

The white tiger kit on Goodwill is at $701, from searching around the net regarding value that seems low.

What would be a fair price?

Re: Metal polishing products?

Great job, thanks for the link. I see you are from Puerto Rico. My Father retired there years ago, I went to visit him at Playa Naguabo. Beautiful place, beautiful people!

Early 60's Sling. snare with Mardi gras finish value?

This snare is on reverb, any thoughts if this price is close to fair? I'm thinking about an offer.

I noticed in the photos the butt plate setup looks bent.

Thanks for any input.

Re: Metal polishing products?

Perfect! Thanks. I got a dremmel tool with small pads at harbor freight, I think the Ryobi wheels would be a way better product. I'll sure try them.
