Wrap, grommet and badge all look great......Love 60's-70's Slingerland !
Wow Kevin...thanks for the tip on making the grommets. What a great idea!!!
Two Down....happy new year!
One wrapped on Christmas and one wrapped on new years, maybe I should wait until Valentine's day to do the bass drum.
You and I have similar taste Kevin, first green sparkle Nashvilles and now silver Niles!
I decided to rewrap a Slingerland snare about a year ago. I got as far as stripping the shell before I acquired some orphan 24, 16FT, and 13 shells. I decided to make a matching set. I bought more wrap. I stripped the 13 tom and then acquired some 12, 14, and 18FT orphans. All are different colored vintage 70s Slingerlands. Now I've been staring at a pile of vintage drums for over 6 months. Some have had the old wrap removed but none are finished yet. I started a year ago, and at this rate, I should be finished rewrapping all the drums in about ten years. No rush.
You are doing such a great job with these drums! Can't wait to see them all done and set up.
Such clean, tight work.... nice job for sure! Your making me want SS!
Almost there, The hoop repaint will have to wait until it gets warm out again. I need to track down six 70's style Slingy T-rods for the bass drum (some of them were missing but there were regular tension rods included in their place). Not a huge deal with them placed on the lower lugs of the back hoop but I'd like it to be "correct". Otherwise it's coming together nicely. Now I just need a matching 14x14 (or one to recover).
Hey Kevin! Looking good!
Nice job on those Kevin. Looks great!
they look really good .... nice job
Couple more angles. They sound great too! Total investment (in the 3 drums) is around $375 ($125 for the drums and $250 for the wrap).
I'll have to do a full photo shoot sometime if we get a warm sunny day or I take them to a gig.
Wow! I would love to find a 3-ply Slingerland for $125, just to refinish. Love that Silver Sparkle!!
