Default Slingerland

Hello all, The Walrus here and here is my vintage Slingerland kit that has been redone in a Tangerine glass glitter, not a wrap. The drums were professinally done at Rockin Robin music store in Houston, Texas. They put maple hoops on the kick as well as new casings for the tension rods. They also removed the badges and put in new grommets. The kit looks new, but sounds vintage. Thanks.

Sweet! What year is your kit?

Why did they not re-apply the badges? I hope you at least got them back, or traded them in for some of the cost of the re-finishing...

Nice job and I love the color.

Here are a couple of pictures of my Slingerland's. I just had these refurbished last month.

I couldn't see the pics so I'm quoting to see if it works. Darn. It doesn't. Re-post, please?
