    Hi Bucky,

    I hope your health issues are better. About that 51N in Blue Denim. As an investment...NO. Yes, these kit are rare, but only because they weren't that popular. As a cultural statement, I'd say it's a cool kit! Slinglerland wasn't afraid to try new things! Condition is everything. What condition is the kit that you are considering? I've seen a few of these kits over the years, but most were not in the best shape. The only kit I saved pictures of, sold in November 2008, for $800. It was in really great condition. Larger rock sizes of 9x13, 10x14, 16x18 floor tom and a 14x24 bass drum. There was also an Artist snare drum that sold for $355 in February, 2008. So, again, if you like the kit for personal reasons, go for it. As an investment...not so much!

    Hi Mark, been awhile since I have been on the forum, had some health issues. Any way, got a couple of questions to ask. First, still looking for my sparkling orange pearl, in 2R. But did run across a 76 51N, in blue jean cover, good investment? 800.? Also was looking at Broadcaster, very expensive, 3K. Thanks for your time, Bucky

    Hi Mark,
    Bucky ( Iamdrummer), I have another question that you may be able to help me with. I saw a 70,s slingerland set, modern solo ( I think), but the guy stated that it is root beer color. My question did Slingerland make a Modern Solo in root beer, the serial numbers are 28000 to 30000. (can't find it in my 2004 book) or is this a black sparkle faded? I saw them on CL in Kansas City, they were posted by someone couple of weeks ago on Vintage Drum Forum. As always, thanks...Bucky
