Whoa, need shades to take in that shine! Nice looking drum. Playing-wise, was there any advantage to Sling stick choppers over stick savers? I've never played choppers before....Dean Heck

Dean!

Allow me to respond as I have a 1st production model of this drum.. ( earlier than this one, and EXACTLY as BR played his ) .. as the black/gold badge will attest. Mine dates to LATE 1969, which is when Buddy was playing BOTH models, although he preferred the COW over the WMP as it is a bit brighter in sound. I have both drums in my BR snare drum collection and can state that Buddy was correct! Anyway, regarding the Choppers vs. the later Savers:

There really is no "advantage" to the StickChoppers other than that they have a different "feel" to them, and THAT is what is so neat about them! The StickChopper came out of the original "straight edge" hoops/clips era, and Slingerland continued to offer them by request. Buddy preferred the StickChoppers, thus this particular model snare drum being THE Buddy Rich, was originally cataloged/offered with StickChoppers, as was the later BR/TDR. A lot of guys that bought the drum back in the day opted for the StickSavers though! I also have to say I like the "feel" of the StickChoppers, and their name is real accurate. Play these hoops for a bit and you will have a wood chip/sawdust pile under your snare drum! They DO chew up sticks!, but that's just part of the experience. Here's a couple pics of my early production model of the same drum, as well as the WMP model, BOTH with Choppers!

Hello John!

NO MUFFLER'S on either of mine. Buddy's personal drums didn't have muffler's either. That's what is so neat about my two drums! They are EARLY 1st run production, and built exactly like BR's: StickChopper hoops, and NO mufflers!
