Slingerland Universal Snare drum?

Just bought this drum. Appears to be nickel with the slim rim clips. Had to make 5 clips to hold the head on. Sounds quite nice! Cleaned up beautiful. This should be around 1940 ish?

Re: Uneven lug spacing on Slingerland snare

Were "seconds" ever released?

The snare sounds great by the way...

Re: Uneven lug spacing on Slingerland snare

ok. got my act together with some pictures. In the first two, the distances are measured between lugs; in the third, the result of the uneven spacing is angled tension rods in some spots. The worst...

Re: Uneven lug spacing on Slingerland snare

Hi Mark,
The holes do look punched neatly, not drilled. I did measure to confirm. Pictures are worth 1000 words. I will get some posted.

I used the tape and have not been pleased with how it lasts. The seams seem to come partly unstuck over time. The tape worked easily to begin with tho..

Re: Clown vomit/frog-in-a-blender past and present

Gotta love the nicknames. The colors are awesome. The old ones have a classy/classic mother of pearl look. The new ones, just wild. Both are cool IMO. How do those old ludwigs sound?

Looks like I just had to read "max file size" Thanks, Tommyp! Here is one early shot. I wound up cutting some off the smallest one.

Re: NOS 70ís Slingerland 3-line Brass Snare Drum Shells
