Wanted; Slingerland 14 x 6.5 COB snare drum.

Prefer '60's but a '70's is ok. Any model, any number of lugs.

Thanks for your time!

I keep seeing Slingerland drums referred to as "chrome over wood" drums, then I will see "chrome over maple" drums.

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

Wonderful pics and info, thanks.

The white tiger kit on Goodwill is at $701, from searching around the net regarding value that seems low.

What would be a fair price?

Early 60's Sling. snare with Mardi gras finish value?

This snare is on reverb, any thoughts if this price is close to fair? I'm thinking about an offer.

I noticed in the photos the butt plate setup looks bent.

Thanks for any input.
