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!
