Thinking about selling everything
5 Attachment(s)
I have no children interested in my grandkids into music, so I'm at the point where I say "why do I keep this stuff?" so. for your consideration
set 1. Most of which was bought NEW at the Slingerland Plant in Niles IL in 1972. That set was WMP 24" bass...13/14 up top...16/18 floor. About 12 years ago I ran into an estate sale where the party had all the sizes I didn't in same year and color. 6/8" concert toms, 10/12 concert toms
another 24" bass...15" tom and a 20" floor tom. I believe that's every size in the catalog, not sure if a 20: floor tom was in it, perhaps custom made for a pro? who knows. A prominent valued the set so I'm asking 5K
I might ad the set is museum quality, all 3 ply
set 2. all white also 70's Sling kit in 24" bass 12/13/14/15 up top 18 floor
asking $1500....excellent condition
set 3. also 70's Pearl all fiberglass kit (NOT woodFG) 24" bass 13/14 top
18 floor excellent condition as well. asking $800

sorry one [pic is upside down, not sure how to correct that. stand on your head maybe> ?

I can't resist this question: Did you ever take the entire kit to a gig?

Not interested in the drums, but is that Slingerland banner for sale too?

BTW, is picture #4 the inverted Tommy Lee set?

Sorry I haven't responded to the PM's guys....I'll leave my email address for anyone who wants to get in touch. I forgot to mention this. I converted my 20" floor tom into a bass drum simply by removing the rims, replacing with wood bass drum rims with bass hoop claws as well. and replacing the heads. I used the mounts for the legs as a cymbal holder as seen in pic. The amazing thing is this bass sounds better than any other Bass I ever played. It can be used in any setting from jazz, to rock. with the drums I have the kit configuration is endless.

Hi Gary, hope all is well with you
