Re: Slingerland Green Sparkle: Thoughts?

Slingerland drums, and especially snare drums, in Sparkling Green Pearl, are rare indeed! Here's my 1964 Deluxe Student in the "as received" condition, which was already fairly clean! It really...

Thanks for the link! Since I don't do anything hosted on Facebook, I was unaware of this site. And, I see what you mean by all the "scammers and spammers"! I can't believe what's on the site!
