Default My Vintage Mid 60's Slingerland Jazz Kit

I just purchased a somewhat rare mid sixties Slingerland kit in Jazz sizes
14x18, 12x8, 14x14, 14x5.
The kit is wrapped in Black Pearl.
It was custom ordered in Connecticut back in circa 1965 by a drummer who later passed it on to his son.
The son put it away in storage for 40+ years and now it is mine.
I have decided to upgrade it with some modern components.

More to follow including pics and video.
Stay tuned, Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel :)
That is all that I can share with you guys for now.
I am to pick up the drums this coming Saturday morning.
They are currently in New York State.
I just finished combing the net and ordering all sorts of goodies for this baby.
To be honest, my friend Ducky did most of the work while I took a nap. This was mostly his idea from the start.
I don't know why I go along with his crazy schemes in the first place, but he always talks me into things.
If you don't like the finished product you can all blame it on the duck!
I kind of like old drums:)
