Hello Lance... and to the forum!

From what I can see, this kit has been re-wrapped in a more modern White Satin Flame. All three of the pictured badges are from different years and the grommets are not original. Pictures of the shell interiors will be more revealing. We need to know if these are 3-ply with rings or 5-ply without rings. Are the interiors clear maple or "chocolate milk"? However, my gut tells me that this kit may be from sometime in the 70's.

-Mark

+1 with Mark on all counts. Not only are the badges from different years they are from three different decades. 60's, 70's and early 2000's respectively.

Yes, those badges are not original. The drums may be all Slingerland and possibly a previous owner just wanted to install Slingerland badges after the kit was recovered. We need more info from the OP.

And it's possible the badges are correct and this kit is a collection of different era drums. I think I'm seeing two different era tone controls. Agreed, more info needed.

I agree with what you said. I hope we hear back from the OP.

Maybe he had luck dating his Slingerland's?
Personally, I would never date a drum set, even before I got married!
Seriously, who knows what is there with all of the different badges & tone controls.

This kit was also posted on the FB page... The FB conclusions made re the badges & vintages .. are identical to those made here.
However he did buy the kit and posted a few further pics.. The 3 ply with rings shells and bearing edges looked nice and he is happy with his purchase.

Cheers
John
