Re: What are the rarest Slingerland wraps/finishes from th 60's-70's?

Very nice Modern Solo 2R Dave. Did you purchase them new or used? Care to share some serial numbers? First three digits is fine if you don't want to post entire number (e.g. 230xxx).

Re: Slingerland grommet tool

Mark (idrum4fun) has the right tool. Seems silly not to take him up on his generous offer. My feeling is the rollover of the grommet will not be 100% correct using the nut & bolt method.

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

OK. Metal BD hoops would indicate Spirit model. 940xxx serials are consistent with later HSS era. According to Dr. Wenk the shell construction on early Spirits was 5-ply mahogany. Later HSS...

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

Slingerlands with that badge are post-Niles imports. That badge and serials 940xxx were used in two different eras. First in the HSS era (early 90's) and then again during the Gibson era (early...

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

As Bob stated pictures are very useful. If you can't post pictures a more detailed description of the badge (e.g. black/silver, black/gold, USA, no USA) and some serial numbers may be helpful. ...

Quite simply it meant "no extra charge" for denim wrap.

Re: Leedy in Austin

To be clear the above applies ONLY to Leedy toms (under Slingerland ownership). Slingerland toms are a different story: No badges on Slingerland toms till mid '66.

Re: Leedy in Austin

Slinger/Leedy era: No badges on Leedy toms '61 - mid '66. Badges appear on toms before '61 and after mid year '66. (per Slingerland historian Dr. Wenk)

DrumBob, how about a picture of your kit? Do your toms have badges?

Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement

Beautiful kit. Expected serial range is approx. 25xxx - 75xxx. Is that a 24" bass drum?

Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement

Nice Mark. Those are good examples of the tom badge placement in question. What makes you believe the red sparkle kit is from '75? Some details I see suggest earlier 70's although still not early...

Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement

Slingerland historian Dr. CJ Wenk states that this badge placement on toms occurred late '71 to early '72, mostly '72. Despite what is commonly believed, badge placement through the years is not...
