    Default Old School Rock & Roll. . . . .My Slingies.

    Just set up my Slingerlands. Out of my 7 kits, this is the only one that is stored in the garage( in cases ) and gets forgotten. I always enjoy playing them.DSC01716.jpgDSC01715.jpg

    It is a chrome wrap so they would not weigh anymore than an ordinary kit. I think

    If you remember a while ago I mentioned that I use optimounts on those drums because of the wrap having metal in it. The drums do weigh a lot! They put stress cracks in the stock drum mounts. I would like to strip off the old wrap and plug all the unnecessary holes and re wrap in the chrome wrap they use now. Then replace all the original hardware. . . . . .too much work? You can stick a magnet on it! Maple with chrome.

    I remember the Ludwig stainless steel drums (actually stainless over maple/mahogany) back in the mid-70s and they weighed a ton.
    Carl Palmer played a large DB set of those on tour and they looked cool under the lights.

    Needs one of those spinners that were all the rage in aftermarket rims about 15 years ago on the front of the bass drum! Nice looking kit!

    I've got my eyes on a Ludwig chrome kit right now for a good price. In the sizes I want too.

    Just trying to justify spending the money.
