Hi all
Looking to complete a rare sparkle orphan kit and just need a bass drum!
Would REALLY love an old Slingerland 14x20/22 in Sparkling pink pearl.
Does not have to be mint but I am picky.. :icon_lol:
Not looking for any common sparkle wraps.
Also would prefer one with the clip mount for the toms I have to use.
Here's the line up (snare is trans badge COB BTW)
Thanks for any leads!

The top tom is a super rare Slingerland Leedy in "smokey sparkling pearl."
The W & A tom looks very similar to Slingerland's super rare Aqua sparkle (not their aqua looking blue).
Pink sparkle would be perfect for the bass drum.

Mark: How big is that ride cymbal...it looks HUGE!
It is huge! It's 22"
I have 3 of them. All different weights. All my fathers from way back.
I've attached some pics & the stamps as they are old but not sure how old or worth. They sound awesome though.
I've cleaned one up so far. I have 16" hats from Istanbul as well as an incredible 20" sizzle ride too.

Hello
This is probably not what you are looking for but it is pink. I have a 1960's re wrapped 14x18 Gretsch bass drum but it is no cheap. If you are interested please PM me.

I was hoping someone here grabbed that. Doesn’t he have the 8x12 as well?
