What is the year?
Unfortunately I can’t say the exact year because there are no date stamps inside, but these have the early 70s black and silver Niles badge with the 3 ply shells.
Very nice, I miss my silver sparkle Slingerlands that I traded a couple of years ago! I have a 14x14 with a black/silver badge that I'd consider letting go, shoot me a pm if you're interested.
Those are beautiful and the sound of the Slingerland kit from that era is “there.” Mine is the ‘63 Modern Jazz version but with 16” floor tom in blue sparkle. Modern drums have their virtues, but not the sonic charms of these rigs.
Very cool Robert, welcome to the forum! Does your '63 set have mahogany interiors? I would love a set of those as well.
Clear interior or chocolate milk interior - my understanding is that the overlap of silver badge/chocolate milk is very narrow (like 70 only)
These are clear interiors.
great job. very nice drums. love the sparkle and shine you have on these.
this kit could be your lifer gigging kit! slingerlands are built so strong in my opinion.
just started using my 22” slingerland BD again with a soul/funk band.
My slingz have been through 2+ decades of gigging, rehearsing in sheds, recordings, all weather scenarios. The drums are still rock solid with minor “players grade” issues.
Your kit can most likely be put in your will and give your kids/grandkids a quality instrument to use for decades more.
