Thanks RK! I’m a guitar player mostly, but the drums was my first instrument. I joined because I have a vintage Slingerland kit that I want to restore, and eventually play again. Looking forward to “meeting” some of the folks here.

Welcome, James. Just jump right in by showing us detailed pictures of your Slingerland kit, and tell us what you want to do to them. We'll be glad to make suggestions, even on things that you may not have noticed.

Looking forward to it.!

Thanks for the warm welcome thus far guys. The detailed pics of the kit are forthcoming, but in the meantime I have this one. Note that the snare is actually a Leedy.

You might also want to let the guys in the Vintage section know about your project...lots of knowledge and great information there!

New heads and elbow grease would be a good start.

Welcome! I'm also in Philly. Looks like you have some work ahead of you!
I’m actually not in Philly, but I’m 60 some miles west. My screen name pays homage to Joseph Rudolf “Philly Joe” Jones the drummer.

Welcome aboard! Can’t wait to follow your progress on your restoration. I’m diggin’ the kit and the bass drum head.

Welcome. Should be a fun project. I started on guitar like you. But I have really enjoyed learning about drums for a couple years now
