Default $30 Slingerland cocktail kit

I ran into (literally) a mid 50's Slingerland cocktail kit for $30 a couple of weeks ago. The wrap was trashed and the original pedal was missing. It came with a Ludwig Speedmaster Red Reversible pedal, still in working order. Here's a picture of it, taken with a crappy camera phone. I've spent almost 30 hours refinishing it, and it's beautiful! Refinishing pics coming soon. This picture is how it looked when I bought it. If you look at the right hand side of the shell, you can see the wrap bulging off...Name:  cocktailwithwrap.jpg

Cool! Have fun with the restoration. Cocktail kits are so much fun. Check out the Tiki Set link below for my cocktail set and custom wrap I put on it. I use a Pearl M80 10 x4 snare.

I saw that Tiki set...very cool. I'm done restoring the drums, just have to get a memory card reader so I can post the pics.

What are you going to do for the snare, toms and cymbals? You could have a lot of fun outfitting this old timer.

Restored the original snare fan inside and sold it to a buddy. He added a set of roto-toms and a remote hi-hat and the thing sings!

Thanks! 40+ hours of labor made it well worth the final result!
