  • Early 1970s Slingerland Avante Outfit 60N in Red Tiger Pearl

     

    For sale is an eye-catching and unique factory-matched Vintage Early 1970s Slingerland Avante Outfit 60N in Red Tiger Pearl in excellent players shape. The Avante outfit features three mounted toms – 12/13/14 – as well as 16 floor and 22 bass with four spurs. Chrome has some oxidation and pitting. Chrome over steel stick saver hoops. Wrap is very vibrant and tight. Minimal scuffs and rash – the worse shown on the 12 in the photos. All 3 ply shells are in-round and feature the clear maple interiors. Some hairline splits in inner plys, but no lifting or separation. Original bearing edges are in decent shape and tune up well. The batter side edges are in better shape than the resonant edges as they must have been played with their bottom hoops off for a period of time, but nothing that effects the sound or tuning. One more heavy of a gash on the 14 bottom edge, but only cosmetic and into the wrap side of edge – hidden by hoop. Could use some new heads as current heads are used and mis-matched. Silver and black Niles badges with the following serials – 12: 94363, 13: 94076, 14: 81597, 16: 93980, 22: 100986. Overall a sweet-looking kit with that Slingerland 3 ply goodness!

  • Late 1950s Gretsch Floor Show 6.5×14 3 Ply Snare Drum

     

    For sale is a beautiful Vintage Late 1950s Gretsch Floor Show 6.5×14 3 Ply Snare Drum in superb players condition. It has been freshly re-wrapped in Green Glass Glitter. The lugs, badge and throw butt are original to the drum. The rods, muffler and microsensitive throw (shorter version) are period correct. All show small signs of oxidation of the chrome, but still gleam. The die-cast hoops are brand new reproductions. New Puresound wires as well as Remo heads. Interior has been freshly repainted the proper color as it was stripped of it’s original paint. Shell is in-round and great shape. The bearing edges were very damaged so they have been re-cut at a 45 degree roundover that makes the 3 plys sing. They had to be taken down quite a bit to remove some scars, so the shell is now about 6.25 in height. Tunes up like a breeze. Overall a superb sounding and great playing gem of a snare! It needed a lot of work and TLC when it got to me, but the results speak for themselves.
