Slingerland 60s “bop kit” restoration. This kit is a rewrap (in Precision Drum Co’s green sparkle) from orphan shells. 3-ply waple interior ply. Rare virgin bass drum originally but had Gretsch Techware spurs installed at some point. Has numerous holes plugged with Slingerland bass drum shell fragments accordingly. Black paint sanded off interior of drum. Original edges are excellent. One hoop is original, the other is a 10-ply replacement from Precision but after painting it it’s nearly indistinguishable. Spurs are earlier nickel. 14×14: early 60s, no badge or grommet. Has a small extra hole plugged below each lug casing. COB rims (one is slightly bent), vertical muffler. Has wing bolt style leg brackets and era-correct legs. 8×12: early 60s, no badge or grommet. Rerings had to be reglued on this drum, and the bearing edges needed some sanding as a result. Wrap is tacked down in one small area under the head collar. Horizontal Todd muffler, COB rims (one is slightly bent). The only extra hole is plugged and covered by the diamond plate on both sides. 5.5×14 Hollywood Ace snare: mid 60s, one little extra hole plugged where the strainer was swapped for a Ludwig P-84. These drums tune up well and have a great bebop sound. They’re reminiscent of Round Badge Gretsch drums from the same era, especially with no vent holes in the toms. All drums fit modern heads with ease and the kit is ready to play. Snare stands in photo not for sale.
