Slingerland eBay find
 
Hello everyone,

I just bought this 60's Slingerland snare on eBay. I bought it as soon as it popped up because it was only $175 and that's low for any Slingerland from this era in my experience.

I believe it's an Artist Series from the late 60's but any experts that have an opinion would be welcomed to weigh in.

Question: Does this look like the chocolate milk interior that someone tried to remove to you? Also, are you guessing this is single ply maple or 3 ply. I'm just wondering as I await the arrival of my new snare.

Thanks

Yes, late 60's Artist model. Approx. '68 - '69. Highly unlikely to be a solid shell. Based on just the one picture, the interior may have been painted over with a darker brown and the exposed areas may be the original 'chocolate milk' interior finish. More/better pictures would help. The zoomatic knob is not original.

Strange how it's just sanded on the top and bottom, great score at $175

Thanks for the info. Yes, strange what someone did with the interior. I'll post more pics when it arrives.

You have a couple of odd tension screws as you can see, but they should be the COB stick saver rims, a good buy.



Cheers

Arrived today. Cleaned up and new heads. Looks great as the older gentleman with my Sonor kit. And sounds absolutely killer.

Hi iamjohn! Your Artist looks great with your Sonor kit! I've had many Artist snare drums over the years, both single-ply and 3-ply shells, and all sounded great!
