Anybody know the year/model of this Slingerland kit?
You can see the badge at 4:22...I think 50's?

Chad Smith playing at home. the bass drum has just an Ambassador, wide open and the sound is huge.
Shows you how drum tones can be so deadened with modern controlled muffled heads.

Cool video and Chad seems like a fun guy.

It looks like he puts in a lot of energy no matter what he is playing.

I liked the variety of songs.

I was imagining a bubble above the dogs head saying "Lord, he's at it again....".

With Chad already being a DW endorser, I wonder if he'll be one of the first to start playing the new DW Slingerland drums. Thatd be interesting.

55 to 59 my guess.
I believe it can be further narrowed to '55-'56. All brass "dogtag" badge is pre '57. Open bracket floor tom leg mounts are pre '58. Wrap looks to be crushed glass, pre '57. BD cymbal mount brackets, mid fifties. Probably a Gene Krupa 1N kit.

If you are on Instagram you definitely need to follow him. He is doing a different beat every day of quarantine and it's a ton of fun. He has such a great sound in his hands.

Thanks I think you narrowed it down pretty well.

I recognized most of the grooves ... But man, there were a few that just went right by me.
I especially liked his Bill Withers take. Pretty cool groove.
Has anyone listed them all? I’d be curious to know the one’s I missed.

They are listed in order in the comments section beneath the YouTube video.
