    Slingerland Serial Numbers

    Four digit black/silver badge would be expected for 1970. Two different black/silver badges were used in 1970, the first to roughly serial 8xxx and the second after roughly 9xxx. Could you post a picture of your badge?

    Suspect Slingerland Kit

    FWIW, badges are black/brass with serials typically associated with '69. Snare ~'68.

    Suspect Slingerland Kit

    The pictures are inadequate, I've contacted the seller for clarification of badges and serials.

    Slingerland Kit age.

    It is classic Slingerland 5-ply. Thin, thick, thin, thick, thin. The outermost thick and thin plies are partially obscured by a post factory stain.

    Yes, an odd listing. IF the badges are indeed black/silver those drums are 1970.

    Slingerland Kit age.

    The script "Slingerland" stamp was used from '77-'79, these are most likely 5-ply.

    If you are sure they are 3 ply without rings then the drums are '81 or newer. All the badge grommets have been badly tampered with so the serials are rendered unreliable for dating. This kit may have been de-wrapped and refinished.

    Slingerland Snare De-wrap?

    Unlikely in this case. The details point to a circa '65 Artist model. Other than the removed wrap, snare beds and wires it is factory correct.

    Kstone, welcome to the forum. Could you post a picture of the 1967 date stamp? Also, what is the badge serial number with that stamp?

    Info wanted: 1961 Slingerland 8-lug wmp snare

    Hollywood Ace or Student Model. Definitely 3-ply but the "M" stamp on the interior designates an outer ply of maple. "M" stamp shells are usually not wrapped. Nice find.
