Re: Slingerland chrome plating or polish ?

I've had good luck using Mothers chrome polish on lugs. Brasso works well, too -- with a light touch and soft cloth, of course.

For removing rust on small parts like rods, screws, lug inserts, &...

Re: is Nevr Dull save ?

Where's the rust? Shell? Hoops? Rods? Throwoff?

And because construction & materials varied over the decades, what kind of drum -- approximate age and model/description? (If you're unsure of...

Re: Slingerland Repair in Virginia

I don't personally know of any repair shops in your neck of the woods, but re-ring separation and ply separation are generally easy DIY repair jobs if you've got plenty of clamps and an appropriate...

Re: Will it fit in a Camry?

I'm not too familiar with that particular model, but you could potentially take the base off. That may not an easy job because of the tuning mechanism, though. You'd probably be in for complete...

Re: Help Identify Field Marching Snare

Marching snares with separate top & bottom lugs weren't the norm before the 1940s. Looking at the catalogs on the Vintage Drum Guide, it looks like Slingerland introduced a separate lug model around...

Re: Help Identify Field Marching Snare

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like that drum might have hollow "airline" style lugs, which were used by Ludwig & Ludwig and Leedy in the '40s.

I've attached a pic borrowed from...

Re: Slingerland Odyssey 1978

No offense taken, but I'm absolutely certain I'm not getting anything mixed up. My experience is with Remo drums made from Acousticon in the mid/late 1980s. I know there are people who have had...

Re: Slingerland Odyssey 1978

According to DrCJW in this thread (http://www.vintagedrumforum.com/showthread.php?t=1190), the Odyssey drums were made for Slingerland by Remo circa 1983-84. (And there's arguably no better source...

Re: diecast hoops

All other things being equal, I think it's not too hard to hear the difference.

As for die cast hoops being "top of the line"... Well, they're more expensive, so it's easy to get that impression,...

Re: Slingerland - help ;)

Too many questions, not enough pictures, pricing that isn't great, and an unresponsive seller? Pass.

Re: Are these slingerlands?

They sure look like it. Set-O-Matic hardware and the lugs and claws look right.

...and a Camco pedal.

Re: Rare Ludwig drum you don't see....

I'd guess this particular specimen was used as a concert drum, but I've seen a few drum & bugle corps use 36" drums on the field.

As for needing a big boy to carry them, I teach a high school drum...

That's the shipping price listed on ebay.ca -- the Canadian site. If you look it up on ebay.com, the shipping price is listed as $95.

The description also states, "Buyer pays shipping of $95 in...

Re: Noobie

How long are you letting the Citristrip sit before scraping? It needs some time to do its job. For thick/tough paint, it may need to sit for a few hours or more.

All of my Slingerland drums (1950s & 1970s) came from the factory with felt in the lugs.

They're great drums, but bare Slingerland shells generally don't sell for that much. Looking at completed auctions on eBay, the recent range for completed sales is $26 to $107. Of course, some do...

Re: Noobie

No huge surprise. They're probably pretty snug, though, which can make for less precise tuning (and can gouge the shell). If you do find that they're snug and want to replace them, an American...

Re: FREE Name it and claim it

I'll name it, but it's not a part I need.

It's an angle reduction bar for a marching snare. The angle of the drum could be adjusted by clipping your sling to different holes on the bar.
