I didn’t take any before pictures but suffice it to say that they look much better now. 12/13/16/20 3 ply Niles black/silver badge with clear maple interiors in silver sparkle. This set is mostly original although not perfect. Previous owner put modern spurs on it (2-3 xtra holes per side), and it was missing mufflers. It also has suspension mounts when I got it and I had to put correct mounts back on. The 12 sings so nicely but the 13 is a bit dead mounted this way. It’s okay with me because I usually only want the 12 and 16, and even if I use the 13 you can’t hear a difference in the middle of a fill. The hoops were missing some inlay, so I took the remaining pieces off before sanding and repainting the gloss black. Then I used sparkle craft tape to fill in the inlay grooves. Looks really good in my opinion. The stick saver hoops have a little corrosion in places even after cleaning, and all the bass drum T rods are scraped to some degree. I am ordering a new leg bracket for the floor tom because one of them stripped out on me. New Aquarian coated heads on top, Remo coated ambassadors on the bottom and a SK1/regulator pair on the bass with a small travel pillow in the bottom. They sound SO GOOD, maybe better than any other Slingerlands I have had from this era. One thing I find interesting is that even though these drums likely left the factory together, there is a difference of about 12,000 between the bass drum (serial 86xxx) and the high toms (98xxx) with the floor tom in the middle (88xxx). The edges and interiors on these shells are really, really gorgeous - the inner plies are all flamed maple to some extent. I can definitely see me gigging these.
