I have a couple of mid `60s Slingerland Sound Kings in standard and 6.5 depth, but this approximately 1960 Slingerland New Brass snare with a smooth brass shell and three point strainer just sounds better to me.
Maybe not rare, but not common. Who else here has one, and can give their opinion...
Bought this new about 2 years ago, but not using it enough to keep it.
A Zildjian 16" Thin Crash.
No flaws at all. Brand new condition at a less than brand new price.
$125 plus actual shipping cost.
A Zildjian 20" ride. 2650 grams.
It has slight keyholing, and a gouge under the bell. Someone did not use felts.
The logo has the thin hollow looking lettering on "Zildjian Co.", but it's not a `50s hollow block stamp.
$100.00 plus shipping.
Armand Beautiful Baby 19" in excellent condition. Still has the barcode decal under the bell.
The only thing preventing me from saying brand new condition are a couple of tiny dimples near the hole on the bell. See photo. They were there when I bought it.
No cracks, no keyholing, no flea bites...
Visited Drum Center Of Portsmouth again today, and took some photos of my favorite things in their museum.
I'm hoping Bun Carlos can tell us a little bit about the `90s Ludwig, with a bass drum with a small batter head and large reso head. Looks like a stubby flashlight. The toms have reso...
Finally took the short drive over to the new location of Drum Center of Portsmouth, now located in N. Hampton (NH).
The old store was a drum shop, this is a drum mini mall.
I have never seen so many drum sets, and snare drums, in one place.
Pretty much every line of drums from every major...
Bought this awhile ago because I had never seen a Mini Cup Ride that was 19".
It has a `70s stamp, and a very faded hollow ink stamp on bottom.
I know better than to say it is rare, because as soon as I do, a dozen members will say they have one. Maybe.
All the advertising and catalog info I can...
Anybody on the forum that are avid hikers?
Here in NH, we are fortunate to have great mountains to hike, and quite a few are challenging. I hike often.
At higher elevations, we have Gray Jays, similar to Blue Jays, but they have no fear of humans, and will eat out of your hand.
I took this...
Every time I pull this snare out and play it, I fall in love with it all over again.
Approximately `60, and it does sound a bit different than the 3 line Sound King snare I have.
This drum, and a `66 Acrolite I own, are definitely 2 of my favorites.
SOLD. Less than a year old. Some fingerprints and stick marks, but no other issues. You will agree that it is in excellent condition with very little use.
1710 grams. My phone is not able to provide a quality sound file.
$165 plus the cost of actual shipping.
The dark areas on the bell are just...
