They're one in the same.

He gets banned every so often when he gets heated in arguments and makes a new account. Gotta be like the 10th time.

You gotta avoid those political topics man!

Just about everything except the 18"floor tom. If I ever get another job, I'll land one someday.

I don't know what you're talking about brother, I only just joined yesterday, must have me confused with someone else. It is possible for more than one person to own a Slingerland kit in blue agate or onyx.

Here are mine. Before and after pics. Slingerland Avanti series. 3 ply. Mahogany - Poplar - Maple, maple support rings. 1971

The old Slingerland tom mounts were beyond repair so I had Yamaha YESS mounts installed.

Very nice, did you rewrap it yourself? I love the finish.

Stickit---man, those chrome Slings are sweet. Just noticed the two cymbal arm holders on the bass drum. Did you rewrap that? Looks like new chrome. I have pulled "chrome" off of several drums that I added to my big kit and they were actually metal of some sort and they always rusted/pitted pretty badly. Same with the "brass" wrapped kits. Anyways,,,great looking old kit. I now have my huge kit in it's most base form...two basses, one middle tom and two "floors". Great rock setup.

That looks like it's from the Drum Farm, as far as I'm concerned he's way over priced.
I wouldn't pay $1,400, not because they are not good drums, but if you ever try to re-sell it you'd probably lose money. Slingerland doesn't sell as well as other vintage American drums.

yeah, its from drum farm. It seemed like a lot seeing as though there needs to be probably 8 new heads bought aswell! And shipping will probably be a bitch, and i really don't have that much to spend on a 3 piece...but it does look like a nice kit

Yeanh i mean you'd think that if it's worth so much money the seller would at least be bothered to stick a new set of heads on there!

No, I did not wrap these myself. I had a guy out here south of Boston do it. P-Tech Percussion. He did a great job. Had to do all bearing edges over and re-glue some plys. Not to mention clean up the old chrome.

What a kikass Drum Co. they were, and with the COOLEST hoops probably anywhere ! They could come back EASY, if they have the right dudes running the show.

Their 3-ply shells were really wonderful. I agree with you on the hoops. The brass does lend itself to a slightly softer feel and the cross stick sound they give is the best.

Yeah they're COB. Most of the Slingerland Stick Saver hoops were up until around the time that Slingerland started making their drums using 5-ply shells. In an around that time the hoops changed from chrome over brass to chrome over steel. At that point it was all about manufacturing costs for them.
