Default Slingerland, Avante, 1970 / 1977

Hi folks,
Got a question for the group. I have been a looking for a classic wrap for sometime, and have only seen a couple. Idrum4fun, Mark, turned me on to a set a couple of years ago, but like an idiot, didn't pick them up. My question, I was talking to a guy here in N.C. and was saying he had an Avante set in Sparkling orange pearl. Have you guys ever seen a set such as this? Also, I want the bass to be 14 x 22 or 24. Just curious. Thanks, Bucky

I see one that just sold on Reverb, an Avante in orange pearl, a real beauty with a 22" bass drum. So they do exist.

It comes up on my cell but not my home computer, go figure, so I can't give you the link. Try this and see if it comes up - reverb.com/item/131779 If not, just put orange pearl Slingerland Avante in and see if it comes up then.

That's a great looking kit.

I just found it! Took some doing, but here's the link... https://reverb.com/item/13177922-sli...g-orange-pearl

BTW, it says it ended, but not sold.

Oh, wait... it says it was listed about a year ago!

Thanks guys, another question, my Rib Cook Slingerland book shows, the Sparkle Orange Pearl wrap was only made in 70 to 73, so you all know if the model, Modern solo, 2R, came in that wrap in a 76 model. I suspect the earlier models, 63 to 77 did not have that wrap, not the bass size 14x 22.

'69-'75 for Sparkling Orange Pearl per Slingerland historian Dr. Carl Wenk. That Avante set on reverb was here a while back and the owner was a member here. Contact him and see if he still has it or knows where it went. Link: http://www.vintagedrumforum.com/show...arkling+orange
