    Hello. I found some photos of your slingerland silver sparkle with the maxwells rail mount. When I have it in the position you had the bottom rim of the 12" rubs against the mount. Any ideas on how to "fix" this?

    Hi Bucky,

    This whole thing about Slingerland offering a "Root Beer" finish has been hotly debated! The majority of experts, including Dr. CJwenk, say it is faded "Sparkling Black Pearl". However, a kit recently sold from Steve Maxwell and he states that the finish is most definitely Root Beer, with no evidence of fading. So, I just don't know! However, trying to find another one would be like trying to find "Sparkling Orange Pearl"!

    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

    Hi Tommy! I had a request from you to be a "friend" so I accepted it! We've had a warm winter, but had a small amount of rain last night with a large storm just behind it.

    As for myself, it's been a very difficult 3 months. My dad passed away November 20 of pancreatic cancer. He was only diagnosed October 18. I went from a fairly carefree lifestyle to a 24/7 caregiver almost overnight. We are blessed that dad passed so quickly and didn't suffer as much as others with the same disease.

    Two weeks after his passing, mom broke her left ankle. She was in a cast for 8 weeks. Now, just before the end of this 8-week period, mom came down with the H1N1 flu, even though she was vaccinated for it in September. Mom was in the hospital for 3 days and has now been home for almost a month and doing better. Not perfect, but better.

    So, that's my life!
