You are bidding on a (Used) SlingerLand Drum Set 1965. I got this set when I was 15 Years old and now I'm 36.

The set has a 22" Bass Drum, a 12" & 13" Toms, 16" Floor Tom, and a 14" Snare Drum. The Snare Drum is a Metal Slingerland Snare Drum. The Toms have Aquarian Heads, Bass Drum has a Remo Head, and the Snare has a Remo Head.

The front Drum head got damage and I never got around to fixing it, I know the new head is 18 dollars and I will fix it before I ship it or send a replacement head. I don't know a lot about drums or vintage sets, but I'm not sure if this is a Slingerland Radio King Set or not. For some reason the Inside of the Toms, Floor Tom, & Bass Drum are painted black on the inside of the drums, I got them this way and not sure why they are painted black, but it is a nice paint job...! The lugs, bolts are still in great shape. The Bass Drum, Floor Tom, Toms, & Snare hoops are in good shape!! I would say the set needs a little work, but I dont know enough about drums to start oiling screws and stuff.

The floor legs, well 2 of them I still have that came with the set and the other 2 legs I recently had to get new legs, (the 2 new legs are not vintage), the T-Screw to tighten the legs, have been replaced before i got the set and I had to replace one of them!! The drums are a little dusty, but I dont play everyday, maybe once a week.

The 13" Tom Muffler is broke, it was a thin piece of metal and broke about 10 years ago and I use other muffling systems for the toms, but that muffler is replaceable.

On the side of the Bass Drum, a piece of the shell broke in a kind of circular pattern. Not sure when this happen in the drums life. All the T-Rods are the same and Tighten rods for the snare and toms are the same ones when I got the set. The drums are in good condition! I'm not sure what kind of Ply these drums are. I never had the Original Slingerland Bass Drum Pedal. I put Aquarian Studio X Drum Heads on it and use a Remo Muffler and the drums sound Awesome! I got the date from the 2 little drums that I got with the set (But are Not being sold in this auction) the date on the little drums have 1965 stamped on them and the person I got the set from said, this is what original came with the set. So, the set is all original, but the 2 little drums are not included in the auction!

This is what you get with this set!!
