Re: 1976 Slingerland Super Rock #51N

Re: 1976 Slingerland Super Rock #51N

Yes! I love the sizes too. All 3 ply, clear interiors. Not a crack in them to speak of, really. They look like they were made last week. No extra holes, no rips or tears in the "leatherette". Just...

Slingerland 5 ply

A quick question: when did Slingerland start first offering 5 ply shells? I thought it was 1978 or 1979? I noticed a set of concert toms on eBay with S/N's as low as 244xxx (black/silver Niles...

Re: Slingerland Spirit

Thank for the input. I kinda felt the same way. I have a few older sets from Niles. I'm getting bored i guess, so I had an interest. I don't have an interest now lol.
Thanks again

Slingerland Spirit

Hi All!
I wonder if anyone could confirm if these Spirit series drums are truly from the 80s? Or would they be from late 90s early 2000s from Gibson era? They are currently on eBay. I've never seen...

Re: Slingerland Avante in Sparkling Orange Pearl

Yes, thank you, you are right! The badge would've been the transition badge if early 1970, or the black/brass if '69, correct?

Re: Copper snare

Thank you Mark! From a lot of what I've read, the Music Yo era snares get a lot of "bad press". I mean, not a lot of people seem to like them. I wonder why that is?? I can tell you, this "Yo" snare...

Copper snare

Hi all..
A couple questions. I purchased the (8) lug, 7"x12" Slingerland snare in the pics below. It is copper in color, but do you suppose its all copper or copper plated? It's copper in color on...

Any suggestions to what type of black paint to use on a pair of 22" Slingerland wood hoops?? These have the chrome inlay, 1/2" wide. I planned on taping over the chrome inlay and painting....

Re: For you Slingy-heads

I agree. My 24" Super Rock Kit has two sets of legs. However, my Avante 22" also has two sets of legs. But I believe this was the exception to the rule? Avantes needed them because of the extra...

Re: Slingerland Avante-worth restoring??????

Thanks Vibes for the input! As I mentioned to Arch, I was going to repair/re-wrap the bass drum only. But I want to keep my options open. It's certainly cheaper to (just) repair, and I'm not looking...
