Default Re: Slinger land verse Ludwig

I don't know if Slingerlands are on the bottom of the heap. I've personally always held them with very high regard. And can't say that I've really seen anyone on this forum put them down. Fantastic sounding drums, some of my personal favorites. As far as mainstream, sadly they aren't as recognized as Ludwig. But a lot of that is due to marketing and promotion. Everyone knew the Beatles, everyone knew Ringo, in turn, everyone knew Ludwig. And by the end of the 70's Slingerland was all but done. So I don't necessarily think they get viewed as the bottom, they just aren't as well known as Ludwig.
