    EB28B229-A866-4189-BAAE-228B014E30D8.jpeg The Slingerland 80n Buddy Rich model kit came Standard with a 24” bass drum, but the 22” was optional. I know because I own one in Mahogany veneer. Left the second floor tom home for the pic.

    Very nice, the one I picked up this morning has project stamped all over it, if someone, maybe even myself takes the time to sand down and redo them it will be a hell of a kit. The chrome is nice, missing 2 spurs and a wing screw here and there, the tom arm is kinda beat, snare strainer and butt not original.

    So what would you guys do here? Refinish? Wrap? Sell as is? Here is the list of what's needed -
    Snare needs a muffler or not, plus strainer is not correct
    Need the right wing screw for the tom mount and the bass drum tom post mount
    Need one ISO foot for floor tom leg, they were all replaced, one is missing.
    Need 2 spurs and 3 wing screws for the bass drum spur holders.
    And possibly a tom post I'm open to offers if someone is looking for a project

    You're asking us to 'project' here ? ; )

    I'd take all the hardware- mounting hardware- replace it with Pearl
    Because ya know all I read is frozen snapped lodged whacked Slingerland hardware (yet it's old Gretsch that gets the bad hardware rap..) t-screws and brackets..

    So the shells lugs and hoops good. everything else needs an upgrade.
    Then wrap em in Red Glitter glass.
    Then pass them off as " the original Pearl drum set" ...

    You did a good thing saving them from the shredder but beyond that
    what was the plan?

    Man I would proudly play that the way it is. Clean it up obviously, but don’t wrap or sand it down. Those scars are real drumming history!

    I'm a flipper, if they were minty I might keep them, but it would need the 24 inch bass drum.

    I've never refinished a lacquered set, but recovered several.
    Personally, I think this one screams "sand down and re-lacquer"! But I know a custome cabinet maker that I could have spray them at a decent price. If you can't do it yourself and need to pay going rate, that could be cost prohibitive.
    You can order new leg mounts or find good used ones. T-bolts can be found from either new or used, and mufflers can be found on Ebay. Same with the snare hardware.
    It all depends upon what you paid for them and if you want a correct set. One thing I didn't notice, and I'll need to look at the photos again, is if the bass has two cymbal arm mounts. They we standard on the 80N set up.
    Looks like a good start for a nice project. Rewrapping would be difficult. I think, and I could be wrong, Slingerland used a veneer on their lacquered drums. The veneer would need to come off before you could rewrap so that heads would fit properly. Or you would need to undersize the wrap, like most current manufacturers do.
    If I hadn't recently picked up a COW 80N, I would hit you up. Those can look like RickP's set with a little love.
    Good luck!
    Steve
