Re: Vintage W&A Kit Restoration

Nice solution John. I like the felt idea too. If for some reason the toms sag (hopefully not!) Slingerland used a piece of metal covered in rubber to hold the toms like a brace towards the bottom of...

Re: Vintage W&A Kit Restoration

Mitch I agree on your theory. Some of the older Slingerland ones I have are just a press fit. The handle is brass and the rod itself steel. The end of the steel rod has some "teeth" machined in it to...
