Slingerland made chrome wrap drums in the 70's through the very early 80's, do you have, and can you post pictures of the badge, the floor tom tom leg brackets and the tom-tom holders? That would be helpful in identifying the exact vintage of that kit.

also i am considering re-wrapping my kit prior to selling it so could you advise what finishes were current around the date of manufacture. They have the original silver chrome at the moment but it is in poor condition.

thanx in advance of any help you are able to give.

best regards

thanks 'timekeep69'

thanks man for taking the time to reply.

I can get a full chrome wrap for my toms and bass for £130 GBP (my snare is already chrome) so I am considering the advantages of re wrapping it b4 i sell it.

any idea of a possible date of manufacture please?

best of luck m8
