Beautiful kit, I guess it's just my eyes playing tricks on me but that wrap looks like the very rare Root beer sparkle.

Thanks for all the positive feedback.

rillow64: The wrap actually takes on many appearances, depending on the angle of the light hitting it. In some shots, it appears that the wrap is black with gold sparkles, while in others it appears that it does have the "root beer" look to it.

Smile Re: 1970 Slingy Sparkling Black Pearl

I was just posting about a 3 piece rootbeer wrapped Slingy. I purchased mine in 1973 and never knew when mine was produced. Like the earlier kit I saw, yours is incredibly similar to mine but my kit was a 4 piece with snare. I've missed it so much and it really hurt to have to sell it in 1978 as I moved on to college. What a mistake that was....good luck and hope you can hang on to yours.
