Default Slingerland score!!

Picked these up last week. Guy's dad was a cruise ship drummer. Still had original heads. Nov 1964. He'd only take $50, said he wanted to see them fixed up. Really great looking. Chrome is as good as I've ever gotten on an old set. Already found a 15" that'll make a great floor tom. It's on it's way. Trying to get the band to do a gig as "Charlie and his Tunas".

Nice. Reminds me of the time some guy called me and said, "I've got some old Ludwig drums up in the attic. Give me $50 and get them out of here." I scored a sky blue pearl 60's set in 13/16/22, with a chrome Supra 400.

Then, I cleaned them up and flipped them for $350.

Really cool! Definitely get them cleaned up and gig them! So, was that marching snare used as the main snare drum?

No. I pick it up to use as a floor Tom.

That's a great match. You'll have a terrific little drum set. Are you going to attach floor tom legs? Use a cradle? Fly the tom? When I decided to use the 10x14 mounted tom from my Rogers set as a second floor tom, I acquired a cradle that worked out very well. That way, I didn't need to modify the tom at all.
