Re: Slingerland/Tama

Re: !!! JP2Creations web site down

Jim's a great guy. His parts saved my first kit, a late '60s Slingerland my dad bought for me when I was in high school.

Always found him easy to reach and talk to. Glad he's still out there.

Hello. I'm a little mystified as to how to tell whether late '80's-early '90's Slings. were from the "Lite," "Spirit," or "Artist Custom" Series.

The Lites were US made and the others were...

Re: Attaching snare wires to slingerland rapid strainer

I can play loud and hard, and I've never even come close to snapping snare string. I use Pearl's string these days. It's pretty strong.

When I was younger, I used to use fishing line. Worked...

Re: Slingerland Serial Numbers

Thanks, Doctor.

There are a couple differences between my kit and Agop's, other than the color. The mount on the bass is plain aluminum, no Slingerland decal. My 13" tom has a chrome mount,...

First of all, check this link out:

Ludwig & Ludwig Universal 6-lug value/questions

I played an Elkhart L&L 6-lugger today, and liked it quite a bit. It looks just like the one pictured in the webmaster's collection. It has to be one of the lightest metal shell snares ever made.

I like...

Re: 1930's Slingerland, Should I play

jujubead, nice score. I wish I had room for a kit like that.
