Default Re: This is the Display Your Slingerland Drums Thread

I've owned more Slingerland kits and snare drums than any other make! Here are 4 kits I currently have:

1967 4pc Silver Sparkle. Also have a matching 14x14 and custom BR 4x14, not pictured.
1968 BR 80N - a beautiful kit!
1971 Modern Solo 2R/New Rock 50N just by switching hardware!
1994 Artist Classic wrapped in custom American Flag motif. Very patriotic!

I think this is from around 1957. It is a great sounding drum.
I would love to surround this with an appropriate set.

Terrible photos from rehearsals, but you get the drift. Radio Kings, 13, 16 and 26 in WMP (rewrap). Aluminium badge, nickel streamline lugs, single flange 'Radio King' engraved hoops, no shell-mounted bass drum spurs, Date of 27/09/1947 written inside the bass shell along with the names and address of the first two owners (and date of purchase of 2nd owner).

Had them under some microphones on Sunday for a demo and the engineer lost it, said they were the easiest drums he's got tones out of. We didn't even re-tune for the room, just stuck some mics near them and balanced the levels.
