I really am digging the look. The tom arm and the price.

I bet they sound great too

I don't know what par of the country you're from, but I would try Alto Music. They'll ship pretty much anywhere. Their service and knowledge are great and they're very nice people. Alto is also a Gretsch Round Badge dealer, a mark of excellence and showing a high degree of communication between them and Gretsch. They also get access to rarities and exclusives.

Make sure you call the Middletown store and ask for Donny or Dan.

It may be worth a drive. I hope you call them first though. LOL They are currently closed on Sundays because of Covid. And I haven't been there since just before the quarantine, so I don't know what in store stock is like, but they can get just about anything.

"Your Slingerlands sounded great"

My friend Jessica loved how they looked too

Hey Tom, visit the thread I started on bop kits. The link is below.

I was asking for advice on which bop kit to choose, and it was between the Canopus Yaiba and the Pork Pie. 7 pages of responses! It's worth checking out. I chose the PP and ordered it last week, but the Canopus was the winner from the responses.


By the way, member Murat has a real beautiful Canopus for sale right now. You'll see it on the last page of that thread.

That's a lot of money. And it's not even the laborious laquer finish, it's a wrap. Seems a little much....

Can't blame you for loving the Slingerlands, especially when the ladies think they're cool to!

The Canopus is a pretty good deal at around $1600 though. And that finish you pointed out is pretty as well. I hadn't seen that one before.

Even my piano player texted this morning

"Nice gig. And keep those Slingerlands...great drums"

And he never comments on my equipment.
