Default Slingerland Trade

I was offered this Slingerland kit in a walnut finish for my Ludwig red sparkle kit. Both kits are 3ply with a 12,13,16,22. I kinda like them, any thoughts?

I actually don't, but I'm guessing you think I should keep the Ludwigs.

Well, since the Ludwig FT is not original to the kit, I say trade for the Slingerlands.

I'm a Slingerland enthusiast and not fond of Ludwig drums. However, I prefer wrapped drums much more than unwrapped drums. Having said that, I would still opt for the Slingies.

The Slingerlands are post '74. How far post? 3-ply or 5-ply? Born together? Quality drums no doubt. Strictly in terms of dollars and cents the Ludwigs would probably fetch a better price on any given day.

The Slingerlands are 3ply, just like the Ludwig.

It's just my personal taste, but I grossly dislike brown wood grain drums. They look like furniture. No thanks.

Normally, i would too (and i get what you mean)

But in this particular case, i'd be all over that trade

The brown just seems to "work" in this case
