    Default Slingerland Vintage marching concert toms?

    Traded these for some brass cheapo cymbals I was selling for $30, guy traded me straight up. Anyone know anything about em? both have the upper and lower attachments on the shells for attaching to a marching belt I guess.

    Hard to believe someone would march with these heavy drums, one is an 18" and the other is a 14" was gonna list em for about $50 for the pair?

    Sabian HHX 21" ride and AAX crashes, Zildjian 14" K hybrid hats

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing

    Those upper and lower attachments look like regular tom mounting clip mounts.
    One may go to another attachment for two drums together, marching?
    I believe the piece sticking out from the tension rod is for the marching belt to clip on.
    Those are awesome sizes. Looks maple too.

    Cool! I remember marching several miles, up & down hills, in late August heat, wearing a thick polyester uniform and a 10Lb furry hat, carrying a set of Quad-toms like that.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    Yep, I remember carrying a heavy 70's Slingerland TDR 12 x 15 Chrome Over Wood marching snare with the mach lugs, gut snare strainer, single sling, and leg brace that caused the drum to flop around and beat me up as I marched.

    I also remember after long parades when I took the drum off, I would have to sit down before the blood rushed to my head and made me dizzy to the point where I would almost pass out.

    I'm sure that the marching percussion of today has improved by leaps and bounds compared to what we used back in those days ...
