    WTB: Parts for Slingerland Push Button Brackets

    Thanks Jazz. I have a carpenter friend who says he can probably make one, especially since I have a metal insert on hand to use as a model. Certainly worth a shot. Not being much of a fan of the push button system, I was also thinking about slightly elongating the button hole in the casing and...

    WTB: Parts for Slingerland Push Button Brackets

    Hey guys, I need 2 springs and 2 metal inserts to complete a pair of Slingerland push button floor tom brackets. I know there's one set on ebay, but I could buy a complete bracket for that asking price. Let me know if you can help. Thanks!

    WTB: Ludwig Standard Ts for BD

    Looking for a set of Ludwig Standard T rods for a 22" bass drum. I have 5 and can go with either 11 (using key rods on the bottom of the drum), 15 or 20 (if you don't want to break up the set). Let me know what you have. Thanks!

    Bum Wrap Ruby Strata?

    Just wondering if any Ludwig Standard owners have had Bum Wrap Drum Co match a Ruby Strata wrap. I've got a stripped rack and bass drum that I would like to match with this floor tom.

    Slingerland guys - your opinions please

    The chrome inlays don't bother me as much as I thought they would. Thanks again everyone.

    Thanks JDA. I will post pics once I finish detailing. I decided to go with the original chrome inlays.

    Slingerland guys - your opinions please

    Thank you for the replies and all the great info guys. The serial numbers are in the 355xxx range, and the drums (12/13/16/22) originally had a Super Set-O-Matic which the seller sold separately. BD drilled for one set of spurs. Like lossforgain, I prefer the look of sparkle, but now that I...

    Slingerland guys - your opinions please

    The shells are 5ply with the "Slingerland" stamp on the interiors, no P or M. The grommets look original to me as do the wrap seams lay up on the bass drum- i.e. the long piece over the short, and then the short piece over the long. In all the re-wraps I've seen, the short piece is glued down...

    Slingerland guys - your opinions please

    I picked up a late 70s early 80s blue sparkle set that came with metal inlays on the bass drum. Was that a thing with the blue sparkle finish? Having repaired the lifting seams, I have my suspicions that the kit was originally a veneer finish that was factory wrapped, in which case the metal...
