I recently bought a red sparkle Slingerland kit from 1964 but the original drum head was destroyed. Anyone know of where I could find one?

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

They show up on Ebay and Reverb all the time. I'd be surprised if one wasn't for sale right now.

Yes, they do show up from time to time. Can be difficult to find in VG condition, though. Still, you never know, so just keep your eyes open!

These are period-correct heads on my 1967 kit. The original inked logo still looks great! The batter head also has the original "built-in" muffler strap!

Thanks for the responses. I was able to find a resonant head from a 90's Slingerland kit but I plan to keep looking for a period-correct head on eBay/Reverb.

Those are beautiful drums Mark!

Thanks for the compliment on my drums! Keep looking for that correct drum head. Might take some time, but they do crop up.
