Exactly. You earlier said "last of the gold badges was '69". That's not true according to this chart, they ran into the early 70's. At least that's what it says if you hover over the image. And none of the silver black ones say anything about showing up in the 60's, which was my only point earlier regarding claiming that these drums could be from the 60's.

Cheers

, that page contains several inaccuracies. Until someone proves otherwise the charts by DrCJW should be the "go to" reference.

This is a photo of the wood of the bass drum. Is this what 3 ply is?

Thought I'd take a crack at that one myself!

Here's a pic of the inside of the bass drum and a closeup of the sparkle finish that I thought was cool.

I think I have enough info now to post it for sale. It's difficult to find a sold comparable set anywhere, but I'll keep looking.

Thanks everyone!

Any insights into the type of wood Slingerland used for these drums?

Thanks in advance!
