Going to look at a bicentennial slinger land kit. 12,13,16,22 with Krupa. Wrap is dusty but dead ment. Chrome is perfect no Pitting no nothing. What do tall think it's worth. Saler wouldn't say his price. Was gonna start at 7 an maybe go 850 or 900. I'm I way high or low. Date on the drums are July 4 76.

I don't recall Slingerland dating the shell interiors during this time period. At most, there might be a "Slingerland" stamp inside. Can you possibly post pictures of the date stamps? Right now, I can't help but think that a stamp of July 4 76 was done by the owner. I could be mistaken, but need proof!

As to a price, condition and color are everything. Not too many of the Bicentennial wraps around. I purchased the same size drums, but without snare, and wrapped in rare "Sparkling Purple Pearl" for $1250 a little over 2 years ago.

I got them. No dates are not inside the shells. They are 12x8,13x9,16x16,20x14. No snare. They have the factory heads on the kit. Maybe 20 to 25 stick marks on the heads. I got them from a local shop that had them setting in the back closest since 78. They r dusty but menty. Little bit of clean up an they will be brand new again.

What... only ten (10) red/white/blue 14x20 bass drums were ever made?
I doubt there is any documentation to verify this. Still, a 22" bass drum was the norm by the time the Bicentennial kit was offered, with a 20" being an option.

I think you got a very good deal at $900. Post pictures when all cleaned up!

Oh, I see... yeah, I thought that was stretching it some... but maybe so... but without documentation... you could also say Buddy Rich owned them in 1976.

I have never seen or herd of a 76 20x14. Only 22x14. Owner said it was a special from slingerland at the time. I'm going by what I was told. They could be more. But goooood luck finding them

Awesome. What do the interiors look like? That will say a lot about the date.

No way the drums have that date. Nobody worked on that day and Slingerland didn't date drums in the '70s.
