1970's Slingerland 3ply Thermogloss Natural Maple Shell Kit
12 x 8 tom
15 x 10 tom
22 x 14 bass drum
All drums are in really great shape. They all have Niles ,IL badges and are a perfect finish match.
12" and 15" toms are the classic Slingerland 3ply shells with re-rings
The bass drum is a Sprit shell , 5 ply, no re-rings, grey/black interior
But is a 'first gen' Spirit, made in Niles as opposed to the later ones made overseas.
No extra holes. Everything works. Chrome is excellent for drums this age, they shine! Bearing edges good on all drums, and all shells are round.
Mufflers intact and working on both toms.
Stick saver hoops top and bottom on 15”.
Stick saver batter hoop and triple flange hoop on resonant side on 12”.
The bass drum spurs are...improvised... but they work well.
12" tom holder is a Yamaha tom arm and it works really well, perfect fit for the bass drum.
Hoops are original and in great shape, T's are modern Gibraltar and Claws are Ludwig.
The 15" has the top section of a Slingerland double tom holder stand. But it swivels - tightener doesn’t stop it from swiveling. I just play it as is, but you may want to replace the stand (or the bottom of it at least). But it doesn’t bother me as is.
Heads were all replaced in the last year (batter and resonant heads).
