Re: Red-White-Blue Late 60s Slingerland set 12-14-20

The badges on your drums (black/silver) were first used in mid 1970, they did not exist in the 60's. Look at your own reference to the original "Sparkling White Pearl" wrap that you removed from...

Re: Red-White-Blue Late 60s Slingerland set 12-14-20

This set is clearly early 70's NOT late 60's. No earlier than late '70 and no later than '72. Contrary to popular belief Slingerland offered the Red, White and Blue wrap for many years. It was not...

Re: Tension rod thread: 1950s WFL & 1930s-40s Slingerland

That would be a 12-24. Fairly common size.

Re: Transition badged Super Ludwig imposter?

Re: Vintage as Vintage Can Be

Yes, should be aluminum, and why were they changed? Raises other questions too. Still a super cool set.

Re: Vintage as Vintage Can Be

A Ringo (or Ginger, or Mitch) drum with extra holes or cigarette burns is a treasure, for everyone else's drums it is just damage (LOL).

Re: Vintage as Vintage Can Be

A neat set to be sure but not exactly a true "time capsule" kit. Extra holes in toms are noted but badge grommets also appear non-original. Some of the hardware is not 100% correct either. May be...

Re: Help indenitifing slingerland snare

I concur with Mark, he has given you accurate information. Serial 477xxx is expected for 1980, and may even be early '81, so not a Buddy Rich model. Adding to Mark's comments it appears the snare...

Re: Prototypes

"Prototype" is overused, usually as a way to explain something that isn't understood. Prototype's less distinguished brother is "Made on a Monday/Made on a Friday".

Re: What are the differences between Ludwig and Slingerland shells?

Good info with a few clarifications regarding Slingerland 3-ply shells: Slingerland did not choose an inner ply based on the outer ply that was being used. There were 'inner ply' eras. Mahogany...

Re: Need a chuckle? Check this out!

Based on the woefully inadequate pictures looks to be a '55-'57 kit. "Good condition Repainted white" per the seller. I wonder what wrap is under that paint. Pricing is probably only off by one...

Mark, you've got examples of some of the best variations of both BDP and Blue sparkle.

Re: Slingerland 6.5x14 10 lug 3 vent BR models

IF you are referring to the '76-'77 Buddy Rich snare then 5-ply only would be expected. That Buddy Rich model was essentially a TDR Deluxe Concert King. Per Slingerland historian Dr. Carl Wenk all...

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic LM400 Question

Thin shell, have you had success with this procedure? Won't the heat required to flow solder on the shell discolor the surrounding chrome?

Re: Leedy Superior Hardwhite heads

FWIW, "Leedy Superior Hardwhite" calf heads were available into the 60's. Not sure if the logo changed or not.
