Default Slingerland snare

Does anybody know what I have here, maybe a price value, or history of Robert R. Keller.

Not much info to go by my friend. Please give a more detailed description along with a picture or a YouTube video that shows the drum.

From the looks of it, it's roughly a 1962-1970 Slingerland, with a Zoomatic throw off and original COB sticksaver hoops and small knob muffler, suggesting an Artist model snare drum. The finish isn't catalog original, and the badge grommet looks like it's been tampered with.

...oh, nevermind. There aren't any pictures. How are we supposed to help?

No,he just made drum shells,owned Keller drum shells and passed away last June.Keller made drum shells for almost all US drum makers ,except for Ludwig,He even made drum shells for Slingerland later on and DW since 79.Anyone that knows drums,knows Keller drum shells.For a time,his shells were stamped, Robert R.Keller

Without pics,no one could possibly know what you have,or what it's worth.That's like saying...: "I have a car,that says Chevrolet,what's it worth,and what's it's history?

Pics please .
