Default 3 Reinforcement Ring Bass Drum?

Hey all,

I stumbled upon an unidentified kit online that Iím considering purchasing for a project/gigging kit. Iím thinking it may be a Slingerland due to the lugs, but Iím not so sure Iíve ever seen a bass drum with 3 reinforcement rings.

Any idea on what this kit may be?


Cheers,


Alex.

Default Re: 3 Reinforcement Ring Bass Drum?

Early Slingerland Radio Kings often have three re-rings, however they would not have the lugs pictured on this BD. Those are the '55 and up "Sound King" lugs. Lots of MIJ kits used a clone of that lug. If interior grain runs vertical it is MIJ as Slingerland grain runs horizontal.

Hi Chill!

It's definitely an MIJ kit! Pictured is a cool kit I had many years ago, wrapped in a beautiful rootbeer swirl. It had Slingerland-style lugs and hoops. You can clearly see the 3 rings in the bass drum!
