Default Slingerland

This is the 9x13 tom from the 1975 Slingerland kit I just bought. I like the color, I believe it's called blue pearl, but I'll probably rewrap it once I figure out if I'm going to keep them. I'll get photos of the whole kit when I set her up.

Nice tease. Now show us the rest of the kit. Is it a thinshell with reinforcement rings or the thicker straight shell. No matter. They both sound great. I run all my vintage toms on RIMS, just like you have there. I un-bolt the original hardware (but save it, of course) to lighted the drum and position the RIMS plate to cover the hole(s) left. Works like a charm. Sizes, price paid. More info. Good score.

Thanks guys, these are the 3ply shells, 8x12, 9x13, 16x16, 14x22. They are all fitted with new fiberskyn heads including a Powerstroke fiberskyn on the kick. I payed $450 with shipping. If I rewrap it will either be champagne sparkle or white pearl.

Awesome price. The champagne sparkle/bermuda sand would be my choice for wrap. (of the two). My Rogers project http://harryconway.typepad.com/ so far has cost me $352. Same sizes.

Beautiful. I dig the "cool blue" finish just as it is. But yeah, champagne sparkle, elegant.

Yeah, they don't look too bad, but there is some discoloration in the finish, particulary around the kick. Then the leg casing stripped out last night so I had to pull out the mighty duck tape so they leg would stay extended. That's the one problem with older kits, always some hardware problem, but they do sound fantastic.

2 hose clamps will work as a cheap fix on the spur. Poor mans memri-loc. a common upgrade (while keeping with the vintage theme) is either Ludwig foldout spurs or the arched disappearing spurs. Couldn't begin to count the non-Ludwig kicks I've seen, over the years, with Ludwig spurs on 'em.

What a beautiful kit man! I'm hoping to eventually own something like this, but right now ive had no luck. Also, how do you like those fibreskyns on your toms/bass? Ive been looking into getting those for a while.

Ther're not bad, they came with the kit so I decided to try them at a gig. I would say they would work better in a jazz combo. I prefer my coated Ambassadors in the more rock oriented music I play.

i think that the fiberskyn ambassadors are better for all round genres
i got mine today, look beautiful and sound great, i prefer the look of fiberskyn diplomats, but they are too bright for me
