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

All of the late 70’s veneer finishes are rare. I have rosewood oil veneer on my kit and I've only seen a handful of the rosewood, some lacquer, some oil, since I got them.

Re: Over the Years Bosphorus vs Istanbul cymbals.

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

They have a focused sound with a natural muting effect. They don’t ring as much. They tune well high or low and seem to sound good even if you aren’t super careful with tuning them. They are...

Re: Calling on Slingerland Experts

This was a single tension marching snare. The tension rods went from one claw to another grabbing the two wooden hoops so no lugs were needed. You can see examples of this all over the internet and...

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

Of course when you buy a new drum you get a new drum. There’s no reason someone cant make a modern drum with high quality control thats as good as the vintage drums.
