Re: Shell ply query

With a factory Duco finish it should be maple exterior, poplar middle and mahogany inner ply. Looks correct.

Re: Why do I trust Ebay sellers?

Olimpass, you called it. Probably one time when you hoped you were wrong.

Re: Slingerland snare drum on eBay!

Mark, you're almost certainly correct that this is a 3-ply shell. Per Dr. CJ Wenk there were very few solid shells after early '65 and solid shells should not have date stamps. This one has a JUN...

Re: Slingerland Deluxe Student Sparkling Green Pearl

Nice one K.O. A bit newer than Mark's. Six digit serial in the 160xxx - 250xxx range?

Re: Slingerland Deluxe Student Sparkling Green Pearl

Thanks Kevin, I thought I could make out an inward bent slider on the strainer (used on drums without bridges). Is this a 6-1/2" shell or 7"?

Re: Why do I trust Ebay sellers?

I had the same issue as you. I contacted eBay and they told me how to find the link. It was not completely intuitive and luckily I've only had to use it once.

Re: Why do I trust Ebay sellers?

The buyer can still leave feedback after a case has been opened (and decided upon) however the link to leave feedback is harder to find. As others have said open an "item not as described" case and...

Re: Slingerland Sparkle Orange 14x20" Bass Drum

Just FYI, the badge on your drum is the earlier Chicago badge ('56 - '59). The wrap is the confetti version of "Sparkling Gold". GLWS.

Re: Slingerland Deluxe Student Sparkling Green Pearl

kevins, I'm curious, why are you identifying the deep WMP snare in you collection as a "student model RK"? I'm with Mark it appears to be a professional level RK. Did you add the snare bridges?

Re: Restoring Slingerland duco paint

a) Strip old finish and repaint.
b) Wrapping is possible but be aware the added thickness of the wrap may cause head fitment issues.

Re: 1958 Slingerland Drum set 1 owner, complete original set pricing/selling help

+1 and adding to thin shell's comments the drum kit is essentially a student model with an added floor tom. Regardless of how the snare sounds it is a student model and that does affect value. Be...

Re: A/Avedis Stamp ID

Interesting. Do the artisan trademark identifiers show up on all eras or are they specific to certain eras?

Re: Is This A Solid Shell Drum?

I believe v-more2000 meant to say the washers and screws are genuine Slingerland.
They are not factory. This is definitely not a Slingerland shell or a solid shell. Interior grain runs vertical...
