Great drum, and you had an all-star lineup of pros helping you out on this one.
I've had some great work done for me by Joe in the past.

Very nice! I have this same drum as you with the same badge etc. The difference is that the rim does not have the RK engraving on the top Rim. Apparently slingerland were a bit lack-luster with that around that time.

That is a beauty. One of my absolute favorite Slingerland models. I bet she sounds fantastic!
