I believe it was sometime in 1968 and it would have been the aluminum version.

While the evidence points to this being true, the question is what year was the Slingreland Set-O-Matic introduced. That year is 1968.

As far as I know..
The "prototype aluminium model ran from 1968 -69.. Then the final cast & chromed version was introduced, this initially included "Patent Pending" on the BD mount inset logo.. The final "Patented" logo was introduced around mid '70-71.


Cheers
John

My 1968 Slingerland set has the first-year version of the Set-o-Matic system. I have spare parts for the chromed version. But, why mess with originality?

I have one--possibly two--receiver brackets and a single tom arm for the bass drum receiver and a double tom mount for a floor stand. But I have other Slingerland drums to use them with. I'm just stating that I see no need to replace the dull aluminum that came on the set with the shiny parts.
