    Why vintage hardware?

    Most collectors are completists. I for one like the Time Capsule Look of my 1979 slingerland Buddy Rich outfit. I have all tubular stands and pedals for it, down to the Zildjian cymbal snaps! Let me turn on the Way Back Machine: 0-8 by Stephen Duffy, on Flickr But I wont gig it. My Black...

    Vintage Slingerland Bass drum: Seems a little strange to me.

    Those old Slingerland hoops were really strong, considering all the work they had to do - holding the toms, the spurs, the cymbals - not to mention holding the head tension! Amazing that they didn't split!

    Cool 1970's Slingerland Cordova-cover color sampler on Reverb!

    Just saw this. I had no idea one could order seven different colors, including a "spring-green". Try finding an 18" floor tom to match that kit! How very 1970's of you, Slingerland ... :rr: https://reverb.com/item/35513846-original-slingerland-custom-cordova-samples

    Dream kit as a kid

    I always wanted and recently bought the rosewood 1 up, two down "Jazz Fusion Kit" ("680T", formerly known as the 80N) on the cover of the 1979 Slingerland catalog, pictures of which I have shared here many times. It was well worth the wait! Curiously, the real kit was much lighter than the one...

    Great interview with Fanny drummer Alice de Buhr!

    "Fanny" is the greatest, classic 1970s band that I never heard of, but thanks to Youtube, I am now really enjoying their music. They were the first all-female rock band to sign LP deal with a major record label. Man, they are fantastic musicians, all four of them. And Alice was a great drummer...

    Vintage kits with two toms identical in size

    My twin 5-ply Slingy floor toms have a wide tuning range. They can sound as different from each other, as my 16 and 18 Rogers Fullertons do. (Although, one sounds a tad better tuned low than the other does, with identical new heads.) 0 by Stephen Duffy, on Flickr 0-1 by Stephen Duffy, on...

    How To Pack A Cymbal For Shipping

    I once received a new, Zildjian A 17" thin crash from Music123. It arrived with no packing at all, sharing a box with a cymbal stand, and it came squashed and inverted. Reminded me of a poem someone posted here years ago: "I used to hate china's. but today I'm converted. I stepped on my...
