Default Re: My Vintage Mid 60's Slingerland Jazz Kit

Thanks Camco, they sound wonderful! I will put up a Q2HD vid tomorrow.
The modern hardware really works well with the vintage drums. I can't wait to get the thick spurs on the BD so that it is more stable.
They sound exactly like the dw Jazz series kit that I played a few months ago.

I have them tuned tight for a Jazz vibe with these heads;
Coated Ambassador snare batter and Ambassador Hazy snare side.
Coated Ambassador as batter and resonant heads on toms.
Coated PS3 batter and Smooth White Ambassador resonant on BD.
Felt strip to dampen the BD reso.
I kind of like old drums:)
